Aaron Rodgers had a frustrating start to his Sunday, but by the time it got late in the game against Cincinnati, he was delivering another vintage performance. With 17 seconds to play in the fourth quarter, Rodgers fired a bullet pass earmarked for Jordy Nelson and just out of reach of a diving Dre Kirkpatrick, tying the game at 24 and sending it to overtime.
Coming off a beating in Atlanta, a home loss against the Bengals would have spelled disaster for the Packers. But we should all know by now that Rodgers wasn’t going to let that happen. Green Bay won in overtime off the strength of another amazing pass play—this one to Geronimo Allison for 72 yards to set up a 27-24 victory.
