Packers work overtime to top Cincy

Geronimo Allison had 6 catches for 122 yards vs. Cincinnati. 

Green Bay (AP) - Mason Crosby kicked a 27-yard field goal with 6:26 left in overtime set up by Aaron Rodgers' 72-yard pass to Geronimo Allison, and the Green Bay Packers rallied to beat the Cincinnati Bengals 27-24 on Sunday.

Crosby's kick completed the Packers' comeback from a 21-7 halftime deficit.

On third-and-10 from his 21, Rodgers took advantage of yet another free play after defensive end Michael Johnson was whistled for offside. Officials let the play continue, and the two-time NFL MVP found Allison down the left sideline.

Crosby took care of the rest for the Packers (2-1).

It was Rodgers' first career overtime win, and it was his first career win against the Bengals.

The Packers host the Bears on Thursday night.
