Opening observations before watching it again
*I'm really not sure I saw what I saw.
*They rallied from 16 down to beat one of best teams in NFL and the best QB in NFL.
*Turnovers on four straight possessions by Bengals for 2nd time in franchise history ('94).
*Up 14-0 before Aaron Rodgers took snap, GB then scored 30 row, Bengals then scored final 20 row.
*Huge to get to 2-1. Chicago loss sent them chasing, they caught one Sunday.
*Big game changing challenge won by Marvin, turned GB 1st down to 4th and 1 into fumble/TD.
*Scary scene of Finely wobbling off field.
* Clay Matthews hamstring issue huge. Out most 2nd half.
*Gutty effort to bail about rest team/held GB to 13 points on 4 TO.
--Dalton INT, on Bengals 26=FG
--Gresham fumble, on Bengals 37=0 point, D forced punt
--BJGE fumble (what a play Matthews), on Bengals 25=FR/TD
--Dalton fumble, Bengals 29=FG
*Defense on field 24 straight GB plays for final two 4th QT drives: Total of 10:51!
-GB ran 11 consecutive plays, ending in fumble/TD Newman.
-GB then ran 13 consecutive plays, ending in 4th down stop.-Peko huge sack 2nd & 6, pushed his man into Rodgers....left 3rd & 12.
3rd & 12 Hall tackled Cobb, 1st down challenged/won by Marvin (4:23)
-4th & inches: stop, fumble forced by MJ, Nelson scoops, fumbles, Newman picks up, TD.
*Held QB below 300 yards for 18th straight game, longest active streak NFL.
*How many deflections for game? MJ on 4th and 5 to seal game!
*Picks by Newman and Hall....Newman INT with GB near midfield, kept momentum going after AJ TD.
*Rodgers started 2 for 9. Missed on 6 passes row. Had 41 game streak without multiple INT.
*DL went down like bowling pins at times.
*Trickle down from loss of Geathers?
*Dunlap timing, speed, strength and reach on sack helped force FG, 16-14.
*4 sacks: Michael Johnson 1.5, Dunalp 1, Peko 1, Gilberry .5.
*Huge day Johnson, 1.5 sacks, 4 QB hits, 7 tackles.
*Limited YAC (GB 295 last week).
*Atkins tired? watched him walk after Franklin on throw to 3-yd line.
*Atkins slow getting off at snap, 2:20 left game.
*Big 3rd down stop late half to force FG: Dunlap, Nelson, Hall.
*Bull crap personal foul on Nelson.
*Nice game by Hall.
*Heck of a job by Mays and Nelson, especially late w/o Hall.
*Burfict 2 cheap shots same play/Packers got penalty for retaliation.
*Harrison washed out/Thompson on ground--Franklin 51 yd run. Harrison late getting off field/peanlty-decline/TD.
*Zeitler, Gresham and Green with 1 tackle each, more than Atkins and Harrison.
*2 TDs in :14 to take 14-0 lead.
*Andy: 20 of 28, 235, 2 TD, 1 INT (really poor), fumble, 105.5 QB rating...sacked 4 times. Made some poor throws, behind and late, but beauty TD pass to AJ.
*80-yards, 10 plays, TD to open the game..great balance, Sanu catching, BJGE running, Eifert blocking and Bernard capping.
*TD drives 80, 65, 95.
*Nice day Sanu: 4 for 68, but big drop on 3rd and 7.
*BJGE TD rush 14-0, big help Cook, Boling, Zietler. Big fumble later.
*Gio 10-50, TD, 4 catches, including 31 yard catch/run. Vision is excellent.
*AJ 0 catches 1st half, show frustration, 1st catch 5 minutes into 3rd.
*Why so much miscommunication: AJ and Andy?
*Eifert with couple nice blocks on opening drive, 1st/only catch 4 minutes into 3rd.
*4th & 9 at GB 34, 30-21, :22 3rd, (had BJGE in?) called TO. Miss FG.
