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.
