There wasn’t much to write home about for most of the Detroit Lions’ matchup with the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, but the fourth quarter was something extraordinary.
When Lions kicker Matt Prater gave his team a 12-3 lead in the fourth quarter, the Packers appeared to be doomed. Instead, that’s when they started to come alive. There were three touchdowns and a successful onside kick in the last six minutes of the game.
The Packers couldn’t quite pull off the comeback at home, as the Lions picked up a rare win at Lambeau Field. Although the Lions are still in last place in the NFC North with a 2-7 record, their victory over the Packers dropped Green Bay to 6-3 and allowed the Minnesota Vikings to take over the lead in the division at 7-2.
