Green Bay Packers vs. Detroit Lions Recap DEC 13TH 2020

Mason Crosby kicked a 33-yard field goal as time expired to give the Green Bay Packers a 23-20 victory over the host Detroit Lions on Sunday.

The winning boot allowed the Packers (13-3) to clinch a first-round bye for the NFC playoffs. The Lions (3-12-1) lost their ninth straight game despite holding a 17-3 halftime lead.

Aaron Rodgers overcame a miserable first half to finish 27-of-55 passing for 323 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Aaron Jones rushed for 100 yards and Davante Adams caught seven passes for 93 yards.

Having failed once to get the go-ahead score, Green Bay took possession at its 17-yard line with 1:20 remaining. An unnecessary-roughness penalty on safety Tavon Wilson after a short run by Rodgers and completions of 4 yards to Geronimo Allison and 11 yards to Marquez Valdes-Scantling set up the play of the game.

With Rodgers under pressure, he checked it down to Jones, who broke two tackles en route to a 31-yard gain to the Lions' 20. Four plays later, Crosby, who missed four field goals and one extra point in last year's game at Detroit, connected on the game-winning boot.

The Lions received a combined 160 rushing yards from Ty Johnson, Kerryon Johnson and Bo Scarbrough.

Lions third-string quarterback David Blough was intercepted by linebacker Blake Martinez midway through the fourth quarter to help Green Bay get the tying points. The score came when Rodgers fired a bullet to Allen Lazard for a 28-yard touchdown to tie the score at 20 with 5:19 remaining.

The Lions dominated the first half en route to a 17-3 lead. They struck first with a trick play. Receiver Danny Amendola got the ball on an end-around to the left, stopped and threw the ball across the field to Blough for a 19-yard touchdown. Kerryon Johnson plowed in from the 1 on fourth-and-goal to make it 14-0 with 3:13 left in the half.

Rodgers was 6-of-18 passing for 90 yards. He overthrew several receivers, including Jones on what should have been easy 14-yard touchdown. Instead, Crosby kicked a 32-yard field goal to cut the margin to 14-3 with 20 seconds left in the half. The Lions answered just before half, as running back Ty Johnson broke a tackle and gained 40 yards to set up Matt Prater's 42-yard field goal as time expired.

Green Bay finally got in the end zone late in the third quarter on Rodgers' 20-yard touchdown pass to Adams.

The Packers pulled within 17-13 on a 40-yard field goal by Crosby with 12:07 remaining. Prater answered a minute later with a 56-yard field goal.

Aaron Rodgers passed for 290 yards and three touchdowns -- including a record-setting score to Davante Adams -- and ran for another score as the visiting Green Bay Packers clinched their second straight NFC North title with a 31-24 victory against the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

Green Bay (10-3) vaulted into possession of the top seed in the NFC with the New Orleans Saints' loss at Philadelphia. The Packers, who own the tiebreaker against the Saints, play two of their final three regular season games at home.

Detroit (5-8) saw its flickering NFC playoff hopes take a hit as quarterback Matthew Stafford exited the game with a rib injury late in the fourth quarter. Stafford was shaken up on a hit by Kenny Clark one play before Kerryon Johnson scored on a 2-yard run to bring the Lions within 28-21 with 6:30 remaining and was later replaced by Chase Daniel.

Packers placekicker Mason Crosby kicked a 57-yard field goal on the ensuing possession before Matt Prater's 32-yarder brought the Lions within the final margin with 1:49 to go. Detroit's onside kick attempt after the Prater field goal went out of bounds, and the Packers closed the game with a first down.

Green Bay raced to a near perfect start, with Rodgers completing each of his 10 throws on the team's first two possessions for 119 yards and touchdowns to Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Adams' 56-yard catch and run marked the eighth straight game in which he has caught a touchdown, breaking Hall of Famer Don Hutson's franchise record. Adams has 14 touchdown receptions this season, tied with Tyreek Hill of the Kansas City Chiefs for tops in the NFL.

Stafford was 24-for-34 passing for 244 yards and a touchdown to T.J. Hockenson. Danny Amendola led the Lions with six receptions for 66 yards, while D'Andre Swift ran for a touchdown in his return to the lineup after a three-game absence.

Adams had seven receptions for 115 yards and a touchdown while Valdes-Scantling had six catches for 85 yards and a score. Rodgers opened the second-half scoring with a 6-yard touchdown run to cap a 14-play, 75-yard touchdown drive that swallowed 8:49 of clock time as Green Bay took a 21-14 lead.

Aaron Jones paced the Green Bay ground game with 15 carries for 69 yards.

The Packers' defense sacked Stafford four times.

The teams entered halftime tied at 14, with Rodgers and Stafford both turning in sparkling first halves. Rodgers was 12-for-15 for 149 yards and two touchdowns in the first 30 minutes while Stafford was 17-for-22 for 203 yards and a touchdown.
