Packers rally for dramatic, 24-20 win

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on November 18, 2012 – 3:19 pm

DETROIT–Kicker Mason Crosby missed two more field goal attempts and the Packers offense was stalled for most of the day, but then came crunch time. That’s when Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb teamed for the game-winner in a 24-20 win over the Lions at Ford Field on Sunday.

The Rodgers-Cobb score supported a strong defensive effort by the Packers, especially considering the defense was playing without star pass rusher Clay Matthews.

Trailing 10-7 at halftime, the Packers took a 14-10 lead in the third quarter when safety M.D. Jennings returned an interception of a Matt Stafford pass 72 yards for a touchdown.

The Lions retaliated with a 10-play, 83-yard drive Stafford capped with a 25-yard touchdown pass to Calvin Johnson, and the Lions added to that lead when Jason Hanson booted a 27-yard field goal after the Packers defense held firm with its backs to the end zone.

That set the stage for an all-or-nothing drive by the Packers. Rodgers capped the drama with a 22-yard touchdown pass to Cobb, and Crosby converted the PAT kick to give the Packers a one-point lead with 1:48 to play in the game.

The Packers defense delivered the final blow when it stopped the Lions on fourth-and-15 from the Lions’ 20-yard line. Crosby salvaged his day with a game-clinching, 39-yard field goal with :19 left.

It’s the Packers’ fifth consecutive win and leaves Coach Mike McCarthy and his team to wait for tomorrow night’s Chicago at San Francisco game. With a Chicago loss, the Packers would be tied with the Bears for the NFC North lead, holding the head-to-head tiebreaker.

Rodgers completed 19 of 27 passes for 236 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Stafford was 17 of 39 for 262 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.

Cobb caught nine passes for 74 yards and one score, and the Lions’ Johnson made five catches for 139 yards and a touchdown.
