Packers get on scoreboard on final play of half, trail 14-3

AP

The Packers didn’t do much right in the first half, but they did get a field goal on the final play of the second quarter as time was running down. Green Bay, with no timeouts remaining, snapped the ball with 18 seconds remaining and Brett Hundley threw a pass in the middle of the field to Davante Adams.

Since it was fourth down, the Packers couldn’t spike the ball. Instead, their field-goal unit sprinted onto the field and Mason Crosby nailed a 35-yarder to cut the Lions’ lead to 14-3.

The Packers’ third long snapper of the season, Derek Hart, had a low snap on Crosby’s first field-goal attempt. With the timing off, A'Shawn Robinson blocked it.

The Lions have dominated the first half with 176 yards. They have not punted, scoring on two long drives and missing a field goal on the third.

Matthew Stafford has completed 12 of 14 passes for 137 yards and a touchdown. Golden Tate has four catches for 56 yards, and Marvin Jones has three catches for 48 yards and a touchdown.

Hundley’s second start hasn’t proved much better than his first. He has completed 13 of 18 passes but for only 80 yards. He also is the Packers’ leading rusher with three carries for 21 yards.

  1. Four and out for the Packers.

    Yes, that was four and out!

    McCarthy went for it on 4th down at the 50 yard line and Hundley gets a completion for a 3 yard loss…

  2. 37yrs old and finally realizing what it feels like to be a Browns, Vikings, Jets, and Jags fan…. to not have a Great QB playing is brutal. High five to those fans who are able to grind it out all these years. Not sure I could do it.

    Hang in there. Is highly unlikely that Aaron comes back close to what he was. But, even if he does… Father time is undefeated. The end is near for Aaron and with him, our hopes. We made it through the 70s and 80s, but I fear this rebuild will take even longer. Right now, we don’t have any franchise-level-talents to build around.

    We were blessed with two back to back franchise QBs but our poor management and coaching ruined it.

    You were born around 1980.

    You didn’t start watching football until you were a teenager?

    The Packers sucked in the 80’s into the early 90’s.

    Selective memory?

  5. Lions kick FG early in the 4th quarter.

    Detroit now leads 20 – 3.

    Time of possession – nearly 30 minutes for the Lions – 16 and change for the Packers.

  6. Beluga blows a tire. He’s had enough and wants to leave early. Don’t blame him. He’s embarrassed.

  7. Packers finally get a garbage time TD, but their defense gives up a four play 75 yard TD drive to give the Lions a 27 – 10 lead.

    I was 12 when Brett Favre took his first snap. Absolutely remember the magic man, but who the heck remembers much before 12?! It’s been 25 years of HOF QB play. You’ve got to be kidding me with this Late 80’s BS.

    I’ve been told by Packer fans that they are the best fans in the world – and love their team from birth on…

    You say that you remember the “magic man”? Majkowski only won 2 games in 1991, but you remember his nickname? Majkowski’s only winning season was in 1989, so if you remember the nickname – that would have means you remember 1989. The previous winning season for the Packers was in 1982 – and I can agree that you wouldn’t remember that.

    Like I set before – selective memory – claiming not to remember the late 80’s and early 90’s Packers.
