There have been a variety of reasons why the 49ers have gone 10-22 over the last two seasons Tony Pollard Jersey , but none of them are likely to elicit much sympathy for General Manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan if the team doesn’t take a big step forward in their third year with the team.Linebacker Fred Warner told Tyler Dunne of that “you have to win football games in this league or everyone’s going to lose their job” and he said that the sense of urgency for the 49ers to do that this year is at an “all-time high.” Warner isn’t the only player who feels that way.“There’s a fire in peoples’ stomachs of, ‘No more bulls–t. We need to do this now,'” fullback Kyle Juszczyk said.If the 49ers are going to post their first winning season since 2013, they’re almost certainly going to need Jimmy Garoppolo to go from giving glimpses of being a high-level quarterback to doing it for a full season. Warner believes Garoppolo “has everything to be one of the top quarterbacks” and plenty of others around the team have shared similar sentiments in the recent past.The confidence level is high, but cornerback Richard Sherman notes that “you have to watch him do it” before they’ll know exactly what kind of player Garoppolo will be. The same could be said of a team that’s spent the last couple of years building their talent base without having anything to show for it in the standings. GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP)Aaron Rodgers burned another defense deep with a free play. The Cincinnati Bengals found their offense and a new way to lose. Mason Crosby kicked a 27-yard field goal with 6:26 left in overtime set up by Rodgers’ 72-yard pass to Geronimo Allison, and the Green Bay Packers rallied to beat Cincinnati 27-24 on Sunday. Crosby’s kick completed the Packers’ comeback from a 21-7 halftime deficit.Article continues below ... On third-and-10 from his 21, Rodgers took advantage of yet another free play after defensive end Michael Johnson was whistled for offside. Officials let the play continue and the two-time NFL MVP found Allison on about a 40-yard pass before the receiver beat a couple defenders for more yards. ”Luckily I put it in a good spot and G-Mo did the rest,” Rodgers said. Crosby Noah Fant Jersey , a veteran kicker, finished it off for the Packers (2-1). The winless Bengals (0-3) won the toss in overtime but went three-and-out on their opening drive. It was so loud at Lambeau Field that they had to call timeout before their first overtime snap. Rodgers thrived under the pressure. He connected with Jordy Nelson for a 3-yard touchdown pass with 17 seconds left in regulation to tie the game at 24. Cornerback Dre Kilpatrick narrowly missed batting away the bullet thrown by the quarterback into the front right corner of the end zone. ”We rushed the quarterback, keeping him in. We did a lot, but when we broke down, (Rodgers) made plays,” Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. Rodgers finished 28 of 42 for 313 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. Allison had six catches for 122 yards. ”I thought Aaron played one of his best games,” coach Mike McCarthy said. ”I thought he was tremendous today.” The Packers flipped the script after the Bengals controlled the first half. A.J. Green caught a 10-yard scoring pass on the game’s opening drive for Cincinnati’s first touchdown after two frustrating weeks for the offense. Bill Lazor made his debut as offensive coordinator for the fired Ken Zampese. Andy Dalton was 21 of 27 for 212 yards and two scores. The Bengals were desperate to avoid their first 0-3 start since 2008. But they couldn’t finish the Packers off in the second half. ”A disappointment is not finishing a football game now,” Lewis said. Green Bay’s defense generated a little more pressure on Dalton in the second half, and rookie safety Josh Jones gave the injury-laden defense a boost with two sacks and 12 tackles. Rodgers shook off his early struggles to guide the Packers to another win. He was sacked six times , mostly against just the Bengals’ four-man rush, though the protection shored up after halftime. Rodgers threw just his second career pick-six – and his first at home – when William Jackson returned an interception 75 yards for a touchdown for a 21-7 lead early in the second quarter. ”Oh, we took a step as a football team,” McCarthy said. ”This always pays forward when you go through adversity and you have success.” BENGALS OFFENSE At least Cincinnati’s offense finally got into the end zone. Green’s score snapped a season-opening streak of 25 possessions without a touchdown. Until Sunday, they were only able to muster three field goals over the first two weeks, both losses. NOTABLES Rodgers’ only other interception returned for a score came on Nov. 8, 2009, by Tanard Jackson in a 38-28 loss at Tampa. … It was the warmest kickoff for a Packers home game at 89 degrees. NATIONAL ANTHEM Most members of each team interlocked arms on their respective sidelines when the national anthem was played before kickoff. ”We’ve got to stick together and show people that it doesn’t matter what skin color or where you come from, we can stand as one. That’s what we did today Drew Lock Jersey ,” Green said. Across the field, Rodgers stood at the sideline locking arms with tight end Richard Rodgers and backup quarterback Brett Hundley. Three Packers sat on the bench during the anthem: tight ends Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks, along with rookie cornerback Kevin King. INJURIES The Packers played without seven key players, including defensive lineman Mike Daniels (hip), outside linebacker Nick Perry (hand) and starting cornerback Davon House (quad). On offense, left tackle David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and receiver Randall Cobb (chest) were inactive. Right tackle Bryan Bulaga made the start after being listed as questionable but did not return after aggravating his ankle injury in the second half.
