Packers rally to defeat Lions 23-20

Green Bay earned a playoff bye thanks to Mason Crosby's game-winning 33-yard field goal as time expired.

After being down 17-3 in the game, the Green Bay Packers were able to rally past the Detroit Lions to win 23-20 on Sunday.

On a day where the offense looked out of sync until late in the third quarter, Aaron Rodgers was able to throw for 323 yards and two touchdowns, while Aaron Jones was able to rush for over 100 yards and Davante Adams pulled down seven passes for 93 yards and a score.

Defensively, a fourth-quarter sequence in which Blake Martinez sacked David Blough, then picked him off on the next play was a major turning point in the victory.

Pending the result of Sunday Night Football's game between Seattle and San Francisco, the Packers could elevate to the #1 seed if Seattle wins.

It's the first time in eight seasons the Packers swept the NFC North, going 6-0 as part of their 13-3 record.
