Beginning at the the 2:14 mark in the fourth quarter, there were five missed field goals between the Cincinnati Bengals and Green Bay Packers. As those missed kicks helped force this Week 5 game into overtime, Mason Crosby was finally able to get a 49-yarder through the uprights and hand the Packers at 25-22 victory at Paul Brown Stadium to move to 4-1 on the season.
At various points, it looked like the Bengals were going to outlast the Packers. Joe Burrow and co. got the ball to start overtime, but the quarterback immediately threw an interception to De’Vondre Campbell that set Green Bay up inside the Cincinnati territory. However, Crosby missed a 40-yard field goal just three plays later, keeping this game alive. The Bengals would eventually get the ball back and move 38 yards down the field before Evan McPherson lined up for a game-winning try of his own from 49 yards. That kick sailed left by just a few inches and the game continued.
It was after McPherson’s miss where Aaron Rodgers was able to move the ball down the field — on a clutch catch by Randall Cobb on third-and-16 — that set up Crosby for redemption and the game-winner.
Rodgers finished with 344 yards through the air, two touchdowns and an interception. As you’d expect, Davante Adams was his primary targets, hauling in 11 of his 16 targets for 206 yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile, Burrow completed 26 of his 38 throws for 281 yards, two touchdowns and two picks. Rookie Ja’Marr Chase was on the receiving end of six of Burrow’s throws for 159 yards, which included a 70-yard touchdown.
From here, the Packers will head to Chicago to face the Bears in Week 6 while the Bengals will go on the road to face the Lions in Detroit.
