GREEN BAY – The Packers' offense was in another lull heading into the fourth quarter Sunday, but then it did exactly what it needed to do.

Trying to extend an eight-point lead, Green Bay used 11 plays to drive 51 yards and consumed 7 minutes, 41 seconds on the game clock. The resulting field goal made it a two-score game and it serves as the Chevy Drive of the Week from the 27-16 victory over the Broncos.

As the fourth quarter commenced, the Packers were coming off two rough series on offense that produced just one first down and five incomplete passes. Then they took the ball on their own 26-yard line, leading 24-16 with 13:30 left in the game, and went to work.

A 14-yard completion to Davante Adams moved the chains. On third-and-5, running back Jamaal Williams slipped free underneath for a 10-yard catch-and-run. Williams then ran for nine yards, and Aaron Jones picked up the next yard for another first down.

Lambeau Field hosted a Week 3 matchup between the Green Bay Packers and the Denver Broncos.
