VIDEO: Packers KR Pat Lee Lapse Gives Lions Two Points

Confusion is the best way to describe the two points the Detroit Lions just picked up on a safety against the Green Bay Packers. Filling in for an injured Randall Cobb, Pat Lee caught the ball on a Lions kickoff as it bounced into the end zone. He took a knee, but a grasp of the rules eluded him. The result was a safety.

Check out the video of Lee’s mishandling the kick return here.

What happened was that the ball came out of the end zone before Lee pulled it back in and took a knee. That made it a safety, and added two points to the Lions lead. Detroit is up 9-0 on a Packers team resting Aaron Rodgers.

Randall Cobb usually does the kick return work for Green Bay. Cobb is inactive for the game as he deals with a groin injury.
