Week Three Green Bay Packers Takeaways

It was only the second pick-6 in Rodgers' career.

Rodgers found Allison wide open on the Cincinnati 42-yard line, but it was the second-year receiver's work after the catch that put the game on ice.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers does not thrown many interceptions.

Nelson and Rodgers were brilliant. "Justin's first opportunity in a pressure time holding, he did a great job of staying calm and getting it down, staying in the moment". That allowed Mason Crosby to come out and kick a 27-yard field goal to give the Packers the overtime win, 27-24.

And, hey, we've got some - though not very much - of next week to focus on how Green Bay can/might/should/will hopefully fix those issues before they face the Chicago Bears on Thursday night at Lambeau Field.

Dalton posted a sterling 124.1 rating.

On third-and-10 on Green Bay's first possession of overtime, Rodgers coaxed defensive end Michael Johnson offside. The Cincinnati Bengals can point to a laundry list of reasons as to why their offense has yet to get untracked, with a coaching change perhaps serving as a wake-up call heading into Sunday's contest against the host Packers.

So the Packers are 2-1 going into their short week, when they'll host Chicago on Thursday Night Football, and now in third place in the NFC North. From 2011 through 2015 - not that long ago - the Bengals made the playoffs five straight years. The reality is Tennessee handled the Seahawks, particularly - surprise!

There's one impossible-to-miss attribute that rookies Kevin King and Josh Jones share: They do not lack for confidence. A flawless snapshot of its incompetence came when the Titans rushed just three on a fourth-and-22 and still managed to speed up and drill Russell Wilson after he barely got to his second read. He caught four of them for 103 yards.

It was 3rd and 10 and the Packers were at their own 21-yard-line.

After a solid season-opening win at San Francisco, the Panthers struggled badly at home in a win over the Bills, and they followed that effort with a 34-13 home loss to the New Orleans Saints. With a two point conversion in the final 30 seconds of the fourth quarter. And Smith tossed two more touchdowns without an interception as Kansas City improved to 3-0. They'll need it if Dee Ford, who left early with injury, is out for a while. The Bengals literally took an albeit subtle but united stand, locking arms while standing for the anthem.

"I remember the first day I watched him at training camp, I said, 'How do you not get drafted?' I said, 'This kid's fantastic". With Jake Ryan down today, we had to play a bunch of safeties, and he a got a lot of action and he made the most of it.
