Rodgers had a free play with the Bengals jumping offside, and he hit Allison in stride.
Bengals QB Andy Dalton (21-of-27, 212 yards, two TDs, 124.1 rating) played mistake-free, receiver A.J. Green (10 catches, 111 yards, TD) proved tough to stop as expected, and Cincinnati was pounding the ball on the ground late with rookie running back Joe Mixon (18 carries, 62 yards).
Asked what happened on his 72-yard catch, Allison credited Rodgers and center Corey Linsley for making it possible after Bengals defensive end Michael Johnson jumped. I think that's so, but it doesn't mean they can't surprise a superior team on any given day - especially one with the Green Bay Packers' horrendous injury situation.
Hoyer first threw a 3 year touchdown pass to Trent Taylor to make the scores 41-33, but even then most thought the touchdown was more a consolation prize rather than the start if an awesome fight back from the 49ers. "I saw the flag thrown so I was looking down the seams first".
However, fans who were tailgating at Lambeau Field overwhelmingly expressed their opinions that the National Football League should mandate that players stand during the anthem. Jordy Nelson had six catches for 52 yards including two touchdowns.
The Bengals had a lead through most of the game, but the Packers were driving with less than a minute to play. More often than not, Green Bay's results are three- to seven-point margins; it sometimes feels like a game of, here's all the adversity the Packers and their opponent can muster; will Aaron Rodgers be able to overcome it by himself?
"It's a big win for us", Rodgers said. 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.
-Case Keenum threw for 369 yards and three touchdowns, two of them to Stefon Diggs as the Vikings defeated the Buccaneers at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
"We've been down before", Rodgers said. "We scored a touchdown". "Our guys remain committed to winning football games". "We've got to stick together and show people that it doesn't matter what skin colour or where you come from, we can stand as one".
In the process Aaron Rodgers took care of two monkeys on his back. The Packers (2-1) rallied from a 21-7 deficit despite not having starting left tackle David Bakhtiari and receiver Randall Cobb, both of whom were inactive, and then losing right tackle Bryan Bulaga.
He also was visibly frustrated at times during the game. Ty Montgomery only rushed for 35 yards but added eight receptions out of the backfield.
Chicago won in Week 3 as well, defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers, 23-17, in overtime with Jordan Howard rushing for a 19-yard touchdown to secure the first Bears win of the season.
