Final touchdown in fourth quarter gave Packers their biggest lead

11-play, 75-yard drive consumed nearly 5 minutes and put Green Bay up by 14 in Detroit


GREEN BAY – All four of the Packers' touchdown drives at Detroit's Ford Field on Sunday night covered at least 70 yards, but the biggest one was probably the last one.

The Packers took over on their own 25-yard line with 7:42 left and leading by just six points. The ensuing 11-play, 75-yard TD march is the Chevy Drive of the Week.

It took 4:52 off the clock and put the Packers ahead by 14 points on their way to a 31-24 victory over the Lions for the NFC North title. The drive included a 13-yard bootleg run by QB Aaron Rodgers on third-and-1, and a 9-yard swing pass to RB Ty Montgomery to convert on third-and-5.

Once the Packers got into field-goal range, Montgomery ran three times for 20 yards, and Rodgers lofted a 9-yard touchdown pass to WR Davante Adams, his second score of the game.

Rodgers connected again with Adams on a slant pass for the two-point conversion, and the Packers led, 31-17, with just 2:50 left.
