The Packers led this game 30-14 with a little less than six minutes to go in the third quarter. The Bengals took the lead after the Pack tried to go for it on fourth-and-inches on the Bengals' 29 with about four minutes remaining in regulation. Johnathan Franklin fumbled, Reggie Nelson recovered before fumbling, and Terence Newman picked it up and took it the last 58 yards to give Cincinnati a lead that held up.

The Packers drove to the Bengals' 20 in the waning moments before turning it over on downs. Green Bay limps into its bye week with a 1-2 record.
