Cincinnati's offense is struggling. After two possessions, the Bengals ran six plays, gained five yards and failed to generate a single first down. Green Bay isn't having any issues against Cincinnati's defense though. From the Packers 31-yard line, Rodgers slings an incomplete pass down the left sidelines that was nearly completed by Jordy Nelson, but he stepped out of bounds. Cedric Benson recorded his first carry of the evening, cutting inside on the right and picking up eight yards on the run setting up a third-and-two from the Packers 39-yard line.
Rodgers completes a 22-yard pass over the middle with Taylor Mays looking to destroy Crabtree. Officials flagged it for a personal foul on Mays, giving the Packers another 15 yards to Cincinnati's 24-yard line. Cedric Benson, following great blocks against defenseless defenders, cuts inside and picks up another nine to Cincinnati's 15-yard line. Then Aaron Rodgers rushed twice on the next three plays, scoring a touchdown on a five-yard scramble giving Green Bay a 14-0 lead.
