Both teams had chances to win the game in the final moments.
Joe Burrow led the Bengals down the field in the fourth quarter and finished with a touchdown and a two-point conversion to tie the game with 3:27 remaining. It was too much time for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers as the reigning NFL MVP got Crosby in position for a 36-yard field goal. It was wide left.
On Burrow’s turn, he got the Bengals down the field in eight plays to give Evan McPherson a try at the go-ahead field goal.
McPherson missed his kick off the upright. Three plays later, Rodgers had a 20-yard completion to Davante Adams but again Crosby missed a potential game-winner.
Overtime was much of the same. Burrow threw an interception to linebacker De’Vondre Campbell. Rodgers ran two plays to give the Packers a chance again. And for the third time, Crosby missed. The Bengals missed a chance at the game-winner on their next drive too.
