Hail Mary Gives Packers Win (VIDEO)
For three quarters and change, the Green Bay Packers looked like they were on the way to another loss, continuing the freefall the team has been in since the 6-0 start that had us all penciling in them as the NFC rep for the Super Bowl.
The Pack trailed 20-0 in the third quarter, but ended up winning the game on a Hail Mary at the end of the game:
The Hail Mary didn't come without controversy as that play actually was snapped with 0:00 on the clock. The game was extended one play after the Lions were called for a facemask that pushed the Packers up 15 yards. There was some serious question about that call...
However, the Lions have no one but themselves to blame. They blew a 20-0 second half lead. They fumbled deep in their own end to set up the Packers second touchdown just seconds after the first TD.
And no matter if it was a facemask or not, how do you not knock down the heave from 60 yards away?
The Packers are now 8-4 and right in the thick of the NFC North race.
