Fourth's time the charm in Packers win

Mason Crosby's streak is no more, but he finally hit the game-winning field goal in the Green Bay Packers' 25-22 victory Sunday afternoon against the Cincinnati Bengals.

 

The Bengals got on the board first during their final possession of the first quarter on a four-yard run by Samaje Perine. The Packers would answer on consecutive drives in the second quarter on an Aaron Rodgers touchdown pass, a Crosby field goal, and a touchdown pass to Davante Adams. Down 16-7, the Bengals' Joe Burrow found Ja'Marr Chase for a 70-yard strike to narrow the lead to 16-14 at the break.

 

The Packers would only be able to muster a pair of field goals the rest of the way while Joe Mixon tied the game on a rushing score to help the Bengals tie the game with just under 3:30 remaining.

 

Crosby and Evan McPherson would take turns missing field goals the rest of the way until the Packers veteran knocked in his final attempt from 49 yards out to win the game. The game-winning field goal was set up on a pair of completions to Marcedes Lewis and Randall Cobb.

 

The Packers' road trip continues next Sunday when they play at Soldier Field to play the Chicago Bears.
