The Green Bay Packers had to wait until the final ticks of the clock to defeat the New York Giants, but Mason Crosby came through with the game winning 30-yard field goal. The Packers improved to 12-0 with the 38-35 victory.
Aaron Rodgers was scary good on the final drive of the game. He started on his own 20-yard line and two plays later he was inside Giants territory. A 27-yard pass to Jordy Nelson was the pivotal play:
Rodgers had a slight bump in the road when he had a pass for a loss of one yard, but he came right back with a 18-yard strike to Greg Jennings. At the Giants' 12-yard line, Mason Crosby set up and kicked the game ending field goal.
The Packers needed that field goal because the Giants had just scored a touchdown on a Hakeem Nicks grab. This was all part of a very back and forth game. Rodgers threw four touchdown passes and 369 yards while Eli Manning had three touchdown passes of his own and 347 yards.
