ORCHARD PARK, NY–The Packers trailed the Bills, 16-10, heading into the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The Bills took the second half kickoff and drove down the field on nine consecutive running plays before dropping a third-and-5 pass that would’ve moved the chains. Dan Carpenter booted a 51-yard field goal that gave the Bills a 13-10 lead with 9:21 to play in the third quarter.

Aaron Rodgers c0mpleted a 20-yard pass to Randall Cobb to kick-start the Packers’ first possession of the second half, but the drive stalled when Rodgers threw high for Cobb over the middle on third-and-11.

The Bills took possession at their 22 and immediately turned to their running game, but the big play in the drive was a pass of 40 yards to running back Bryce Brown, who appeared to avoid the Packers’ notice out on the left flat. The Packers defense held and Carpenter came on to kick a 35-yard field goal, extending the Bills’ lead to 16-10 with 4:18 to play in the third quarter.

Rodgers was intercepted by Bacarri Rambo and the Bills were in business at the Packers 30. It was the first interception Rodgers had thrown since the New Orleans game.

A hands-to-the-face penalty against the Bills left them to face third-and-17 from their 36. Kyle Orton was sacked by Clay Matthews and the Packers defense had saved the day, leaving the Bills to punt.

Jordy Nelson dropped what appeared would be a 94-yard touchdown pass in the final seconds of the third quarter.
