Victories all count the same. The rookie flew all over the field and made several of the biggest plays on defense for the Packers. The Packers, though, made some adjustments after halftime and got to Dalton with more pressure. Cincinnati dropped its opening game 20-0 to the Baltimore Ravens on September 10. Also, RT Bryan Bulaga (ankle) and WR Jordy Nelson (quad) make the questionable list.
Chicago was coming off a one-sided defeat at Tampa Bay in Week 2, and the Bears were seemingly playing a much better team in the Steelers than they had lost to in the Buccaneers.
Before you pooh-pooh J.T. Barrett's day, tell me if you think he (and the entire offense) would have been able to execute at that level against air two weeks ago. Nobody is counting the style points.
The win lifted Green Bay into a three way tie with the Lions and Vikings at (2-1) in the NFC North.
An extended play to start the third quarter jump started the comeback effort.
The Packers have not had luck in overtime over the past few years. He missed five more in 2013, one game in 2014, and two games each in 2015 and 2016.

His TFL came on the first play of overtime. That's an incredible statistic. The Bengals were very efficient on their first three drives, but once Green Bay got a look at what the Bengals were going to do to work around the deficiency of their offensive line and highlight A.J. Green, the results weren't almost the same. Now compare that to his predecessor. Officials let the play continue and Rodgers found Allison on a throw that sailed about 43 yards before the receiver beat a couple defenders to get inside the 10.
Time and time again, Rodgers routinely makes throws that seem magical - throws that only he can deliver.

The Bengals are 0-3 for the first time since 2008.
"We have to have a direction of execution and things have to fit together and we've got to provide opportunity to attack the defense", Lewis said. With Colorado's win on Sunday, the Brewers are two games out of the second Wild Card spot with six games to play.
Rodgers has the most gifted arm in the National Football League when factoring in both arm strength and accuracy. He's now been on the winning team against every team in the NFL (Packers excluded).
