The Packers stumbled out of the gate. After immediately punting on their first drive, Aaron Jones would turn it over with a fumble that’s recovered by Lions Christian Jones.

Detroit led 10-0 heading into the second quarter. Lions unable to capitalize with a touchdown off of Jones’ fumble, but Prater would kick a 22-yard field goal early in the second.

Packers finally able to get on the board a couple minutes later. Fourteen plays and 60 yards later, Aaron Rodgers was able to connect with Jamaal Williams for the 5-yard touchdown.

Just after the two-minute warning, the Packers offense would get back in the redzone. Jamaal Williams finds a hole and runs up the middle for 45 yards. But Mason Crosby would kick a 37-yard field goal, after the offense was unable to find the endzone.

At the half, Lions lead the Packers 13-10.

Neither team could get in the endzone in the third quarter. The Packers started off with a 48-yard field goal by Crosby and then the Lions followed with two more field goals by Prater.

On the first drive of the fourth quarter, Rodgers threw an interception that bounced off Shepherd’s helmet into the hands of Lions’ Justin Coleman.

Another field goal by the Lions and then the Packers were able to retaliate. They finally find the endzone again as Rodgers fires a perfect pass to Allen Lazard for the 35-yard touchdown.

Packers now trail just two points behind the Lions, 22-20.

Green Bay takes it down to the goal line within the last minute of the game and kick the field goal to win 23-22.
