W, 23-22 vs. Lions
The Packers pulled off a tough win on prime time, getting the game-winning field goal from kicker Mason Crosby as time expired. Prior to that, the Lions got out to a 17-3 lead and did a good job preventing Aaron Rodgers from his usual hot first-half starts.
Rodgers was 24-of-39 for 283 yards, two touchdowns against an interception, which wasn’t exactly his fault. But the key moment in the game was Rodgers’ 35-yard touchdown pass at the 9:03 mark of the fourth quarter to wide receiver Allen Lazard, which cut the deficit to two points.
Seriously, there are few tosses better than this:
Once Lazard made it into the end zone, it surely felt as if Green Bay would safely pull off the win.
It did, the Packers remain in the top five of our NFL power rankings as a result.
