The floodgates have opened for the Green Bay Packers' offense against the Detroit Lions, thanks to Matthew Stafford's mistakes. He threw a boneheaded interception to Packers backup linebacker Rob Francois, and on the next play from scrimmage, Aaron Rodgers did this:
The Lions' safety bit hard on the play action fake, which opened up the field deep down the middle for Rodgers to hit Jones, and, with no help up top, no one was catching James Jones.
It was Rodgers' second passing touchdown, sent the Packers to a 21-0 lead, and, after Ndamukong Suh's ejection, looks like the backbreaking touchdown. Without their emotional defensive leader, it's going to be tough for the Lions to find a way to claw back into this one. However, with an offense that's focused around Calvin Johnson, anything's possible. As they say, that's why they play the games.
