Packers Barely Beat Lions 23-20 to Earn First-round Bye
Mason Crosby made a 33-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Green Bay Packers to a 23-20 win over the Detroit Lions to earn a first-round bye. The Packers fell behind by two touchdowns in the second quarter. They did not lead until Crosby made his second game-winning kick against Detroit this season. The Lions closed the season with nine straight losses for their longest losing streak in a season since going 0-16 in 2008. Green Bay won despite Aaron Rodgers going 27 of 55 for 323 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.
