CINCINNATI -- 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 Packersin a game that came down to who made the final flub.

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