The comeback had to start somewhere

13-play, 75-yard TD drive got Packers back within one score


GREEN BAY – Comebacks have to start somewhere, so the drive that started Green Bay's rally from a 14-point deficit on Sunday in Cleveland is worth remembering.

As such, it's the Chevy Drive of the Week.

Taking the ball at their own 25-yard line, trailing 21-7 with 2:49 left in the third quarter, the Packers drove the length of the field in 13 plays to get back within one touchdown.

A pair of 9-yard passes to WR Geronimo Allison, sandwiched around a 5-yard toss to WR Randall Cobb that was upheld following a Browns replay challenge, got things started.

QB Brett Hundley then hit TE Lance Kendricks on back-to-back plays of 5 and 6 yards, the first one converting on third-and-1. A crossing route to WR Davante Adams picked up 15, and Adams took the next pass for 9 more, ending the third quarter with Green Bay facing second-and-1 from the Cleveland 17.

Hundley dumped the ball off to RB Jamaal Williams for 4 yards on the first snap of the fourth quarter, moving the chains. Williams then burst through a hole up the middle for a 12-yard run, getting pinballed down at the 1-yard line.

Two more Williams runs to the inside didn't quite finish the job, but on third-and-goal, he took a handoff outside and waltzed untouched into the end zone, capping the 4-minute, 59-second march that gave the Packers a chance.

Hundley was 8-of-9 for 62 yards on the drive, and four different offensive players accounted for double-digit yardage.
