Bengals beat Packers 31-24

Posted:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Cincinnati Bengals didn't let this one slip away.

The Bengals nearly blew a 10-point in final minute as the Packers ran out of time at the 10-yard line and Cincinnati held on for a 31-24 victory Sunday.

Trailing by 10, the Packers (1-1) kicked a late field goal and recovered an onside kick. Aaron Rodgers marched them to the Cincinnati 10-yard line, but Green Bay was called for a false start to end the game.

Chad Ochocinco delivered on his promise to perform a "Lambeau leap" when caught a 13-yard TD pass from Carson Palmer in the third quarter.

Defensive end Antwan Odom tied a team high with five sacks and Cedric Benson rushed for 141 yards for the Bengals (1-1), who consistently poked holes in the Green Bay Packers' new 3-4 defense as they rebounded from a last-minute loss to Denver in Week 1.
