CINCINNATI (AP) – Mason Crosby scored a 49-yard field goal in overtime after missing three straight attempts and helped the Green Bay Packers (4-1) to a tight 25-22 win over the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday.
Crosby, who is generally reliable, missed attempts that would have represented victory, with 2:12 minutes remaining and then with three seconds remaining at regular time. As well as missing one more overtime attempt before he finally won the match. He came into the game with 44 field goals from 46 attempts since the start of the 2019 season.
Crosby, who missed an extra point early in the game and also scored three field goals, had converted all six of his field goals and 11 extra points this season.
The Bengals (3-2) tied near the end of regular time. Rookie Ja’Marr Chase caught a third-and-six at the Packers’ 38-yard line for a 19-yard gain, and two plays later Joe Mixon scored on an eight-yard carry. Burrow found Tee Higgins in the back of the end zone for a two-point conversion with 3:27 minutes remaining.
In overtime, Burrow was intercepted by linebacker De’Vondre Campbell, but Crosby missed his third field goal of the game.
Aaron Rodgers threw two touchdown passes to rank fifth all-time. Davante Adams had 11 receptions for 206 yards, the best of his career.
