Packers' clutch score late in fourth quarter happened in a hurry

Defensive penalty for 24 yards, completions covering 35 and 24 yards put Green Bay back in front

WR Romeo Doubs

GREEN BAY – The Packers had to have a touchdown late in the fourth quarter and got one.

Makes for a pretty easy choice for the Chevy Drive of the Week from the 23-20 victory over the Chargers.

Trialing by four points with the ball on their own 25-yard line and 5:24 left in the game, the Packers didn't start out well.

An end-around handoff to WR Christian Watson gained just a yard, and then QB Jordan Love was sacked on second down by Khalil Mack for a 10-yard loss.

That set up third-and-20, and Love's deep ball over the middle for WR Dontayvion Wicks fell incomplete. But Chargers CB Asante Samuel Jr. was flagged for defensive pass interference, a 24-yard penalty that gave the Packers an automatic first down and got them going.

Two plays later, Love's target again was Wicks, who caught a short throw, bounced off a tackler, and was off to the races for 35 yards.

Two snaps after that, from the LA 24-yard line, Love hurried the offense into position as the Chargers looked a little unsettled on the other side of the ball. He lofted a pass into the end zone for WR Romeo Doubs, who reached up and plucked it out of the air, keeping it away from the defender, for the go-ahead touchdown with 2:33 left.
