The Cincinnati Bengals had an improbable 34-30 comeback victory over the Green Bay Packers to improve to 2-1 on Sunday. After storming out to an early 14-0 lead, the Bengals allowed the Packers to score 30 straight points before the Bengals scored the game’s final 20 points, capped off by a 58-yard fumble return by Terrence Newman with 3:47 to play.
Players were obviously in high spirits, but rookie running back Giovani Bernard was a little upset with the Bengals fans.
“Well the fans are doing a great job,” Bernard told Pro Football Talk Live on Tuesday. “I mean, just being there and just supporting us, whether we’re losing or not, they’ve done a really good job. But I was a little bit disappointed this past game where I saw some fans leave. I was looking into the stands and saw some fans leaving once we kind of got down to the 30-14 range, and it was a little upsetting. Then once we kind of got closer, once Terrence Newman scored that touchdown, you could see those seats started to fill up a little bit.”
Bernard had 50 yards on 10 carries and 49 yards on four receptions and also scored a touchdown in the win.
