CINCINNATI, OH (WHBL) - The Green Bay Packers limped into their bye week at 1-2, after losing at Cincinnati 34-30 on Sunday.  Three Green Bay starters left the game with injuries.  Linebacker Clay Matthews pulled a hamstring in a game for the fifth season.  Tight end Jermichael Finley left with a concussion, and running back James Starks had a knee injury.  Terence Newman scored the game-winning touchdown for the Bengals, returning a fumble 58 yards with 3:47 left.  That was after Green Bay overcame a 14-0 deficit - the first time since 2005 they were down by 14 or more in the first quarter.  The Pack then scored 30 unanswered points before Cincy came back with a pair of scores.  Johnathan Franklin ran for 103 yards and a touchdown in his first N-F-L game before he got hurt, leaving the Packers without any running backs late in the contest.   Aaron Rodgers threw two interceptions, ending an N-F-L-record 41-game regular season streak with one or no picks.  The Packers and Bengals committed four turnovers each -- and both teams had a fumble recovery for a touchdown.  M-D Jennings gave their Packers theirs.  

  Rodgers completed 26-of-43 passes for 244 yards and a touchdown.   The Packers outgained Cincy 399-297.  Jordy Nelson was the Pack's leading receiver with eight catches for 93 yards.   Andy Dalton threw for 235 yards and two scores for Cincinnati, which improved to 2-1.  Both he and Rodgers were sacked four times.    The Packers showed again that they don't often play very well in close games.  In Mike McCarthy's seven-plus seasons, the Packers are just 9-20 in games decided by four points or less.  Rodgers is 6-18 in those contests.  The Packers' next game is on October sixth against the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field.
