Aaron Rodgers’ Last Second Hail Mary Gives Packers 27-23 Win Over Lions

The Detroit Lions led Green Bay at Ford Field until the very last play of the game Thursday night, December 3rd, when quarterback Aaron Rodgers heaved a 61-yard hail mary touchdown pass to tight end Richard Rodgers to give the Packers the 27-23 win.

The game was all but over until the Lions were called for a facemask penalty, giving Rodgers one last shot at the end zone and he made the Lions pay.

The Lions led 17-0 after the first quarter and were able to hold the Packers scoreless in the first half.

But, the Packers were able to get the train back on the tracks in the second half. Aaron Rodgers accounted for three of the Packers four touchdowns in the second half, including two through the air. He ended the game with 273 yards passing and 27 yards rushing, leading the team in both categories.

The Lions were led by quarterback Matthew Stafford, who threw for 220 yards and two touchdowns in a losing effort.

This brutal loss knocks the Detroit Lions out of the playoff picture, though they still would have been a longshot with a win. The Green Bay Packers, meanwhile, are now 8-4 with their sites set on an NFC North championship.

The Lions are on the road next week to take on the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, December 13th.
