The Green Bay Packers went down to the last second of overtime Sunday against the New England Patriots before escaping Lambeau Field with a victory.
Mason Crosby kicked a 31-yard field goal as time expired in the extra session to give the Packers the 27-24 victory.
It came in a game that saw New England have to use third-string quarterback Bailey Zappe, who was a fourth-round pick in the 2022 NFL draft out of Western Kentucky.
Mac Jones was out due to an ankle injury. Brian Hoyer started and was lost with a head injury.
The Patriots held tough and even led in the fourth quarter 24-17 before Aaron Rodgers hit Romeo Doubs with a 13-yard TD pass.
It was the 500th TD pass of Rodgers’ career.
In overtime both teams had chances.
Finally, Rodgers took control and led a 12-play, 77-yard drive that took 6:47 and culminated with Crosby’s kick that lifted Green Bay to 3-1 and dropped New England to 1-3.
