Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had gone an NFL-record 41 games without throwing multiple interceptions, but an agressive Bengals defense put an end to that streak Week 3 at Cincinnati. In between four sacks, Rodgers threw two interceptions, the first to Terence Newman in the third quarter and the second to Leon Hall in the fourth.
His interceptions came in the second half, but Rodgers was actually at his worst in the first. Down 14-0 early, he struggled to get the ball off against a heavy pass rush, completing just 7 of 14 passes for 64 yards before halftime. He rebounded enough in the second half to finish 26 of 43 for 244 yards and even threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to James Jones in the third quarter, but the uncharacteristic mistakes defined his afternoon.
Rodgers, who also ran three times for 24 yards, will have a bye week to regroup before taking on the Lions in Week 5.
