Week 14: Top 3 performance moments

Posted Dec 10, 2013

A quick glance at the highlights from Packers vs. Falcons


NELSON HAULS IN 46-YARD PASS, GOES OVER 1,000 YARDS ON SEASON

Early in the third quarter, the Packers needed a spark on offense and got it from WR Jordy Nelson. QB Matt Flynn hit him deep over the middle for a 46-yard gain that set up a field goal and began Green Bay’s comeback from a 21-10 deficit. The catch also pushed Nelson over 1,000 receiving yards on the year, the second 1,000-yard season of his career.

NEAL’S STRIP-SACK, JOLLY’S RECOVERY SETS UP GO-AHEAD TD

With the Packers trailing 21-16 early in the fourth quarter, LB Mike Neal got a piece of Falcons QB Matt Ryan’s arm, knocking the ball loose. DE Johnny Jolly recovered at the Atlanta 21-yard line, and four plays later, Flynn hit TE Andrew Quarless for a 2-yard TD pass for what turned out to be the game-winning points.

BUSH COMES UP CLUTCH TWICE DOWN THE STRETCH

Veteran CB Jarrett Bush, playing the dime defensive back role, made two big plays on Atlanta’s last two possessions. First, he broke up a fourth-and-5 pass for TE Tony Gonzalez with 1:55 left that would have put the Falcons in field-goal range. Then, in the waning seconds of the game, he intercepted Ryan’s throw for WR Harry Douglas to seal the win.
