Packers need overtime to get a win over the Bengals
After getting blown out by the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2, the Green Bay Packers returned home for a matchup with the winless Cincinnati Bengals.
It was not looking good for the Packers at first, as the Bengals stormed out to a 21-7 lead at the half thanks to their defense sacking Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers six times in the game’s first two quarters. But the Packers outscored Cincinnati 17-3 in the second half and sent the game to overtime with the score tied at 24 apiece.
For a team that was picked by many to contend for a Super Bowl this year, Green Bay certainly has not performed like a team with those capabilities so far in 2017. Now at 2-1 on the season, the Packers Week 4 matchup pits them against the 1-2 Chicago Bears at home on Thursday night.
