It was a roller coaster of a game for the Green Bay Packers on Sunday as they fell to the Bengals 34-30 in Cincinnati.  The Pack found themselves down 14-0 early in the game after an opening touchdown drive by the Bengals and a turnover by Jeremy Ross on the ensuing kickoff.  The Packers then ran off 30 straight points to take a 30-14 lead before Cincy came back.  Green Bay had the lead and the ball on 4th and 1 near the Bengal 30 yard line.  Rookie Jonathan Franklin fumbled, and it went the other way for a 58 yard TD by Terence Newman.  Franklin finished with 103 yards rushing after James Starks left with a knee injury.  Clay Matthews also left the game with a hamstring injury and Jermichael Finley suffered a head injury early and did not return.  Aaron Rodgers threw for 244 yards and a touchdown and also had 2 interceptions.   The Packers take next week off before hosting Detroit in two weeks.
