Aaron Rodgers’ Hail Mary pass nearly hit the rafters at Ford Field

The last two NFL games have ended in the craziest ways possible. On Monday, the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens had a surprisingly great game that ended on a blocked field goal returned for a touchdown.

Thursday night, it looked like the Detroit Lions were going to win their fourth straight game as they were beating NFC North rival Green Bay 20-0 in the third quarter. The fourth quarter is where Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers took over and led his team all the way back as they were trailing 23-21 with just a few seconds left on the clock.

Rodgers’ last-gasp Hail Mary pass landed in the hands of Richard Rodgers for a 62-yard touchdown pass to win the game 27-23. Quarterback Rodgers’ pass lofted in the air and it went so high that it was nearly a disaster for the Packers.

Wow, that is absolutely insane. It was certainly a heartbreaker for the Lions and an ugly win for the Packers. The Packers are now 8-4 and are two wins away from possibly locking up a playoff spot.

They will have to play much better than last night if they want to do so.
