GREEN BAYS  BUNGLES LEAD TO BENGALS WIN

CINCINNATI (AP) _ Terence Newman returned a fumble 58 yards for a touchdown with 3:47 left, rallying the Cincinnati Bengals to a 34-30 victory over the Green Bay Packers in a game that came down to who made the final flub.

Each team had four turnovers, leading to wild momentum swings. The last one came on a goofy play.

The Packers (1-2) went on fourth-and-1 from the Cincinnati 30. Rookie Johnathan Franklin fumbled at the line and safety Reggie Nelson picked it up and started running.

Aaron Rodgers stripped the ball from Nelson, but Newman scooped it up and went the final 58 yards.

Cincinnati (2-1) clinched it by batting down Rodgers' fourth-down pass at its 20-yard line with 1:21 left.

THE 1-2 PACKERS HAVE A BYE NEXT WEEK. THEY RETURN TO ACTION SUNDAY OCTOBER 6TH WHEN THEY HOST THE DETORIT LIONS AT LAMBEAU FIELD.  PACKER PREGAME BEGINS AT 10AM WITH KICK OFF AT NOON ON NEWSTALK 1310 WIBA AM
