  Matt Patricia “more nervous” about facing Aaron Rodgers after beating him The Detroit Lions will face the Green Bay Packers on Monday night for the first of two meetings with their NFC North division rival this season. Last year, the Lions beat the Packers in both of their meetings. A 31-23 win in October came against Aaron Rodgers while a 31-0 win in Week 17 came [more]

A difficult season for Aaron Rodgers — from start to finish — ended prematurely on Sunday when the Green Bay Packers quarterback departed during the first half of a loss to the Detroit Lions with a concussion.

But you just knew Aaron Rodgers would find a way.

Throwing to a mostly anonymous crew of receivers, Rodgers rallied the Packers from a 22-13 fourth-quarter deficit to take a controversial 23-22 victory.

BOX SCORE: PACKERS 23, LIONS 22

The Lions wanted the Packers to score at the end, to give Matthew Stafford some time to win, but Jamaal Williams took a seat at the 3-yard line to bleed the clock. Mason Crosby came on and won the game with a short field goal on the final play, and got boosted into the crowd for a Lambeau Leap, if you can call it a leap. The Packers are 5-1, and the Lions fell to 2-2-1.

The 35-year-old kicker nailed a 23-yard field goal as time expired and jumped into the crowd with a boost from long snapper Hunter Bradley after he finished off a rally for the Green Bay Packers, who benefited from some questionable officiating to edge the Detroit Lions 23-22 on Monday night. "That was fun, yeah," Crosby said of leaping into the crowd. "That feeling, once you get up in the stands, the energy in there and teammates and everyone's around, that's something I'll always remember. That was great.

The Packers’ comeback was nice. But the Lions will feel like they got robbed by multiple calls, including a pair on defensive end Trey Flowers.

Lions will be angry about some missed calls

Three calls upset the Lions. On one, Trey Flowers was called for illegal hands to the face on a third-down sack. Replay showed that Flowers had his hands up high on left tackle David Bakhtiari’s shoulder pads, but not on his facemask. It was a missed call. Another hands to the face call on Flowers in the final two minutes was bothersome. It looked like another missed call, with Flowers’ hands on Bakhtiari’s shoulder pads and not his neck. ESPN analyst Booger McFarland was apoplectic about the missed calls on the broadcast. Lions fans presumably were angry too. Also in the fourth quarter extended Green Bay’s drive. Matthew Stafford threw deep to Marvin Jones and Packers safety Will Redmond’s left arm hit Jones early. The pass was incomplete but no pass interference call was made.

He bent down and she gave him a hug.

The Packers brought a look of heavy pressure on the play. There were blitzers ready to charge inside, causing the Lions to prepare for multiple charging defenders. The real culprit was Detroit's incompetence on the Aaron Rodgers -to-Richard Rodgers Hail Mary that saved Green Bay's season.

The Lions also had a horrible penalty that was the right call. The Packers were lining up for a field-goal attempt, the Lions had 12 men on the field and the penalty gave the Packers a first down. They scored a touchdown to finish that drive. That helped keep Green Bay in the game in a sluggish first half.

The Packers will be thrilled for the win. But the Lions will leave Green Bay thinking they got robbed.

Packers rally in fourth quarter

The Packers had to grind out a win. They got some breaks with the bad calls, but they do deserve credit for persevering.

The Packers came in shorthanded. Davante Adams missed his second straight game. Then it got worse when Marquez Valdes-Scantling left briefly with a leg injury, and Geronimo Allison was ruled out as he was evaluated for a concussion. Valdes-Scantling did return, but Rodgers wasn’t working with much.

Allen Lazard stepped up. Who? Exactly. Lazard, undrafted in 2018, had one catch for 7 yards in six career games before Monday night. On Monday night he had four catches for 65 yards and a nice touchdown grab. Rodgers led a slow game-winning drive over the final six minutes, which was capped with Crosby’s kick.

  Matt Patricia roasted after Lions hit with ridiculous penalty that allows Packers to score TD The Detroit Lions squandered a couple of missed touchdown catches by the Green Bay Packers, and then bailed out their rival with a dumb penalty to eventually surrender six points in the sequence anyhow.The Detroit Lions got exceptionally fortunate in the second quarter when the Packers had to settle for a field goal. Then, they shot themselves in the foot with a brutal penalty on fourth down that gave the Packers a first down, and which led to a touchdown.

The Packers saw player after player leave the game with injuries, but Aaron Rodgers was the most critical one. It was not the start to the game against the Vikings that Packers fans were expecting. Their first drive went for an uncharacteristic 3 and out while their second drive stalled after a late hit on

The Detroit Lions defense expects a motivated Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers , especially They’re doing some things differently, so I don’t (play) in to, ‘hey, we did this or that last year With Rodgers playing well this season on his way to leading the Packers to a 4-1 record atop the NFC

The Packers hold onto first place in the NFC North with the win. They got an assist from the officials.
