The Packers come up on top again this week as they hosted the Detroit Lions. They take the win, 27-20, and remain on top of the NFC North at 9-4.
Today, the Packers played without Clay Matthews, Charles Woodson, James Starks, and Jordy Nelson to name a few, but also faced the harsh conditions that come along with playing at Lambeau. The snow and cold temperatures weren’t stopping the Pack today though, and here are our key play from tonight’s game.
Detroit had an early 14 point lead to start of the game, but the Pack clearly wasn’t phased. To get things stated offensively for the Packers Mason Crosby hits a 49-yard field goal in the second quarter, followed by a 43-yard fumble return for a touchdown by Mike Daniels.
Early in the third quarter Aaron Rodgers takes it to the house himself with a 27-yard run. In the fourth, Dujuan Harris finds the end zone on a 14-yard run, and then Mason Crosby kicked a 41-yard field goal, sealing the game.
Tonight was another great night for Aaron Rodgers as well, as he threw for 173-yards, completing 14 of 24 passes, with no interceptions or sacks.
Next week the Packers head to Soldier Field for yet another divisional game against the Chicago Bears who are also fighting for the NFC North title and are one game behind the Packers at 8-5.
