Thursday Night Football late in the 2015 season. The Packers are down big at half, 20-0 to the Lions. The Packers were 8-4, the Lions 4-8, so Green Bay really should have won this game. That’s exactly what Aaron Rodgers and Richard Rodgers thought too – cause they both came up HUGE!
On the final play of regulation, with no time remaining on the game clock, Rodgers threw a 61-yard Hail Mary pass into the end-zone that was caught by tight end Richard Rodgers for the game-winning touchdown after defensive end Devin Taylor face masked Rodgers which resulted in a one additional play.
The play resulted in a dramatic 27–23 come-from-behind victory for the Packers. The victory was the Packers fourth-largest comeback in franchise history, and the start of a 3–game winning streak that would help Green Bay clinch their seventh consecutive postseason berth. The Lions would end the season with a record of 7–9 and fail to reach the playoffs, no surprise to anybody, least of all Lions fans…
