Interception, fumble spell defeat for Packers, 34-30

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers sacked

CINCINNATI–An interception and a fumble spelled defeat for the Packers, 34-30, at Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday.

The Packers were on the verge of putting the game away when Aaron Rodgers was intercepted by Bengals cornerback Leon Hall early in the fourth quarter, and the Bengals drove 95 yards in seven plays to cut the Packers’ lead to 30-27 with 11:04 to play in the game.

Rodgers and the Packers followed with a long, time-consuming drive, but with the game on the line on a fourth-and-one play at the Bengals 30-yard line, lightning struck the Packers.

Rookie running back Johnathan Franklin fumbled, the Bengals recovered the fumble and, a fumble later, Terence Newman picked up the ball and returned it 58 yards for a touchdown. With 3:47 to play, the Packers trailed, 34-30.

The game was now in the hands of Rodgers and the offense and they moved to their 49-yard line by the two-minute warning, first-and-51 for the win.

Rodgers threw to Jordy Nelson for 18 yards and down to the Cincinnati 25. On third-and-five, Rodgers threw incomplete for Randall Cobb, bringing up a big fourth-and-five. Rodgers’ pass was incomplete for James Jones and the Bengals had the ball and the clock to kill.
