Packerstats 2017: Game 3, 27-24 win over Cincinnati

Here are some of the numbers that helped define the Packers 27-24 overtime win over the Cincinnati Bengals on September 24.

  • It was Aaron Rodgers first win against the Cincinnati Bengals. He has now beaten each of the other 31 teams in the league. He has not, however, defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers in the regular season. His only win over Pittsburgh was in the Super Bowl. The Pack will face the Steelers this season on November 26 in Pittsburgh.
  • The game was the third home game for the Packers where the temperature was 80 degrees or higher. Green Bay is now 3-0 in games 80 degrees or hotter at home. Interesting enough, each of those three wins was by exactly three points. The other games were 2002 against Atlanta and 1999 versus the Vikings.
  • For the second time this season, the Packers hosted a game where their opponents scored first in the contest. Since 2000, Green Bay is 10-10 in home games where the opposition scores first.
  • The game was tied 7-7 after the first quarter. The Pack is now 45-28 (.616) in games that are tied after one quarter since 2000. They are 22-8 (.733) in games at Lambeau Field that were tied after the first quarter since 2000.
  • The Bengals tallied 21 points in the first half of the game. When opponents scored 20 or more points in the first half since 2000, the Packers are 6-24 (.200).
  • Aaron Rodgers threw an interception for the third straight game. The last time he did that was the last three games of 2015. He has never started a season with an interception in three straight games. The longest streak of interceptions for Rodgers in his career was six consecutive games in 2008.
  • The win over Cincinnati was the seventh in Rodgers’ career where he was sacked six or more times. It was, however, the first time the Packers won when Rodgers was sacked six or more times.
  • The Packers had to overcome a 14-point deficit in the game (they were down 21-7 at halftime). With their win in the game, they are now 6-66 since 1970 in games where they are behind by 14 points or more at halftime.
  • Green Bay scored only seven points in the first half. They have won their last four games at home when they scored seven or fewer points in the first half.
  • Yesterday was only the second time since 2000 that Green Bay won a game at home where they were behind by seven points or more entering the fourth quarter. The other time was in 2002 when they trailed the Minnesota Vikings by nine points at Lambeau Field and won the game 26-23.
  • The Packers have now played in 32 regular season overtime games since 1970. That ranks 25th of the 32 NFL teams. Their record is 12-15-5 (.453) in those games. The Pack has played in the most playoff overtime games since 1970 with six. They are 1-5 in those games. The five losses are the most overtime playoff losses in the NFL since 1970.
  • Jordy Nelson had a pair of TDs. The Packers are 14-0 in games when Nelson has two or more TDs.
  • Receiver Geronimo Allison set career highs with six receptions for 122 yards. His previous high was four catches for 91 yards in the last game of the 2016 season versus the Lions.
  • Rodgers had three TD passes for the 55th time (regular season) in his career. That ranks sixth on the all-time list. Green Bay is 44-11 in those games (.800).
  • Rookie Josh Jones had two sacks and 11 tackles in the game. He became the first Packers player since Erik Walden in 2011 to have 10 or more tackles and two sacks in a contest. He is also the first Green Bay rookie to have two sacks in a game since Datone Jones in 2013.
  • The running game was fairly non-existent; the Packers had 64 yards on 17 carries. Green Bay is 18-27 (.400) in games since 2000 when they have less than 65 yards rushing in a game. They are 8-42 (.160) in games with less than 20 rushing attempts since 2000.

  2. This is the first four-game losing streak for the Packers since 2008. They had the second longest time-span of not having a four-game losing streak coming into yesterday’s game. The New England Patriots top the league… they have not had a four-game losing streak in a season since 2002.
  3. The Pack was scoreless in the first quarter. They are 3-9 in the last 12 games where they did not score in the first quarter.

  7. Washington QB Kirk Cousins had a Quarterback Rating (QBR) of 145.8 in the game; that is the fourth highest QBR of an opposing QB versus the Pack in the Mike McCarthy era. The Packers are now 0-16 since 2006 when the opposing QB has a QBR of 120 or above.
  8. Redskins receivers Jamison Crowder and Pierre Garcon each had over 100 yards receiving in the game, the first time a pair of opposing players both went over the 100-yard mark in receiving yards since 2012 when the Lions had a pair do so.
  9. Redskins rookie running back Robert Kelley had 137 yards rushing in the contest. The Pack is 31-36-1 when an opposing runner goes over 100 yards. He was also the fourth rookie since 2013 to gain 100 yards rushing against the Packers. The others: Ezekiel Elliott, Todd Gurley and Le’Veon Bell.
  10. Kelley also had three rushing TDs in the game. He is the third running back since 2000 to have three rushing TDs versus the Packers, and the second rookie to do so since the Lions’ James Jones had three rushing TDs versus the Packers in 1983.
  11. The Packers “D” did not have any takeaways in the game. The team is 4-19 since 2006 when they have no takeaways in a game.

  13. Green Bay allowed 40 points in a game for the second time this season. The Pack in 1986 and 2004 had three games where they allowed 40 or more points, most since 1970. They allowed 40 or more points twice in the 1980, 1983 and now the 2016 seasons.
