Packers beat the Lions


On December 3rd, the Green Bay Packers took on the Detroit Lions for the second time this season. The Lions had already beat the Packers once this season on November 15h. The score of that game was 18-16, and it was the Packers home Lambeau Field. This whole game was pretty intense. The first half of the game was 17-0, then it quickly escalated to 20-23 at the close game with the Lions in the lead. The Packers were fixing to lose at the 4th down, until after the Lions defensive end Devin Taylor was called for grabbing Aaron Rodgers' face mask on a tackle that would have been the last play of the game. Green Bay had one more shot to win the game. Sure enough, Aaron Rodgers threw a pass that was as high as it was long. The pass was 61 yards, and Richard Rodgers completed the pass at the end zone, giving the Packers a 27-23 win at the last second. The 61 yard touchdown had made history, it was the longest game-winning, game-ending Hail Mary in the NFL history. This was a very big game for Green Bay. They are now 8-4 this season, including this win.
