Snow flurries and freezing temperatures, couldn’t cool the Packers down as they got back in the win column with a 24 to 16 win over the Carolina Panthers.
The Panthers struck first, as Kyle Allen found Curtis Samuel for a two yard touchdown on Carolina’s second drive.
Aaron Rodgers would immediately respond by leading a seven play, 75 yard touchdown drive that saw Aaron Jones score his first of his three touchdowns on the day.
Things would go quiet until the start of the second quarter when the Panthers Joey Slye would hit a 50 yard field goal to put Carolina back on top.
The response would once again come from the legs of Jones. Following a Kyle Allen fumble and a deep pass to Davante Adams from Rodgers, Jones would plow his way in from a yard away to give the Packers the lead, 14-10.
Green Bay would look for more points to close out the half, but a questionable call to go for a touchdown that was stuffed, instead of kicking a field goal with two-seconds left on the clock resulted in the Packers going into the half only up four.
To open the second half, Rodgers went on a five play 75 yard drive that ended with Jones scoring the afore mentioned third touchdown. Jones finished the game with 13 carries for 93 yards and those three scores.
The Packers would tack on a Mason Crosby field goal to take a two-score 24-10 advantage in the fourth quarter.
However Kyle Allen would answer by taking his team on a 10 play 82 yard drive that was finished off by a three yard Christian McCaffrey touchdown, his first of the day. The Panthers would look to bring the game within six with a two-point conversion but the attempt was thwarted, keeping the score at 24-16.
With snow flurries swirling deep in the fourth quarter, Allen would get one last chance to tie the game for the Panthers, but on the Packers two yard line with three seconds left on the clock, and no timeouts a McCaffrey run would get stopped just short of the goalline sealing the Packers win 24-16.
Rodgers finished the day 17/29 for 233 yards no touchdowns no interceptions. His leading receiver was Davante Adams with 7 receptions for 118 yards.
After improving to 8-2 on the season the Packers will now head into their bye week, before facing the San Francisco 49ers on November 24.
