jim: third and a foot. jump pass just in time and incomplete. and now what do you do with 5:47 to go? at this place on the field, that was abdul-quddus who got a hit on rodgers. phil: came on the blitz on the outside. aaron rodgers did not have time to get rid of it and looks like they're going to go for it and i agree with the decision. they tried to catch detroit's defense off guard with the third down pass. they didn't. the blitz got there. you need two scores, 5:47 to go. jim: fourth and a foot. phil: you go for it. jim: from their own 26. a time-out is called by green bay. called by mccarthy on the sideline and even though they're probably going to need that one back later on, he didn't like
what he was seeing. phil: if you changed your decision and you want to punt the football then just take the delay of game. so i think you're right, they didn't like the play. i know this this -- just from that formation that lined up in, jim. detroit's defense was all lined up there. they were going to make it tough on whatever it was, run or a quick pass. they were not going to give them an easy completion. jim: well, if you fail here and detroit takes over at that point on the field, even if the lions scored a touchdown, got the extra point, it would still be a two-score game. phil: that's right. but 30-14, two scores, two, two-point conversions. jim: same pass to cobb.
shakes off the hit. cobb out of bounds at the 41. phil: wow. probably one of the first passes they install every year is this play. randall cobb in the slot. nice fake at the lining and breaks out. jim: goes for 16. cobb's first catch of the night. phil: mike mccarthy, you better get out of the way. jim: another throw over to cobb. and he's out of bounds after a short gain. that's diggs on the hit. let's go down to tracy. tracy: jim, you mentioned eddie lacy just five carries, four yards. we've seen james starks and even the rookie john crockett in his first nfl game. i spoke to officials down on the packers sideline and they told me it is not injury related. it is a coach's decision, jim. jim: not happy with his play. second and 6. starks. faked like he was going inside,
goes outside and out of bounds and that's near another first. and it is a first down. phil: good job by starks getting some extra yards. going back to eddie lacy. we talked to the coaches last night. everybody, aaron rodgers, they mentioned everybody on the offense and the one name we didn't hear -- eddie lacy. so something went on during practice. we tried to find out. whatever it is -- preparation. maybe they didn't like it. they gave him a chance here tonight. it didn't work and he's watching from the sidelines. jim: 4:40 to go. new set of downs. and a pre-snap penalty called. referee: false start, number 67 offense. five-yard penalty. remains first down.
jim: first and 15. that's rodgers. all the way to the 27. phil: rodgers is having a good night. these are the type of passes, over the middle. it's a blitz. good job by the offensive line. beat up, three reserves, still pick up the blitz to give rodgers time to throw. jim: seven catches in a row for rodgers now for 100. as he's got a 10-yard gain and another first down. phil: little screen to the out. nice running.
jim: from the 17. screen, starks. thought he was down. they rule him down. again, abdul-quddus. he shows up in so many places. phil: he's aggressive. we've talked about him a few times tonight. fast. they love the way he plays and if aaron rodgers wants to take a shot at the end zone, every single play, it's single coverage on the receivers. jim: here's a shot right here, to adams. and they wrestle each other down as the actually falls to the ground. that was lawson on the coverage and now it's third down coming up. and if they fail to do anything here, remember, they still need two scores so they would go field goal. phil: bottom of your screen,
rodgers has what he wants. it's just a little underthrown. jim: third and 11 at the detroit 17. from the pocket. now rolling out. pointing. taking off. first down, touchdown! aaron rodgers runs it home! phil: what a great job by aaron rodgers. nobody's open. breaks outside. in -- and every defender had his back turned away from aaron rodgers. of course, that's why he goes into the end zone untouched. nobody saw him. ziggy ansah on the chase. still, you could see all the defenders with their backs to
aaron rodgers in the end zone. nobody -- receivers are covered. so he took advantage of it. jim: crosby, extra point is good. green bay's longest run of the night belongs to its leader, aaron rodgers. trying to rally them back from 20 down. hey buddy. what 'cha doin'? sleeping. who are you? i'm your "football self," and you're jeopardizing my very existence. but it's... shh. because if you don't go to lowe's and get your to-do list done today then guess what you're going to be doing during the game on sunday? noooooo. go me. now get 30% off all christmas ornaments, at lowe's. ok, wehere's dad. mom. the twins. aunt alice...
you didn't tell me aunt alice was coming. of course. don't forget grandpa. can the test drive be over now? maybe just head back to the dealership? don't you want to meet my family? yep, totally. it's practically yours, but we still need your signature. the volkswagen sign then drive event. zero due at signing, zero down, zero deposit, and zero first months payment on a new jetta and other select models. oh, honey... no.was the first capital. ♪ wait, did you just have that on your phone? it's time to mix it up. do it, dad! yeah, do it! there are thousands of ways into the complex health care system. it was frozen. daddy's hand looks funny. and choosing unitedhealthcare can help make it simpler by letting you know when your claim has been processed. yo, adrian. still not funny. unitedhealthcare
jim: 84 yards in four minutes, 11 plays, one of which was the fourth and 1 from their own 25, which paid off, although it did cost them what could be a final time-out, leaving the packers with two. phil: changes things. i would kickoff -- kick off here. you only need a field goal no. onside kick. jim: and crosby sends it through the end zone. phil: puts a lot of pressure now on that packer defense to get a three and out. hey, what's up troy?
okay, that it? that'll do it. excuse me. hey, man. huge fan, man. oh, thank you. all the touchdowns... and the wins... and the passes. yeah, you know, i don't like to dwell in the past. but thank you. [ cell phone ringtone ] aikman, touchdown! unbelievable! aikman, touchdown! unbelievable! aikman, touchdown! unbeliev- (ends abruptly) i dwell in the past. i would, too. i don't blame you. okay. as long as you are you, it's miller time. great, just wish i had double double chchecked thoseya? throwback uniforms though... cannot believe they found your size. woop! look at that huh, woo! you liked them though, right? no, i didn't. it pays to double check. save big with state farm.
and jim and rick with his home game here, the dearborn boy. 3:04 remaining. can the team last in the league in rushing, the lions, run out the clock? phil: everybody at the line of scrimmage playing run all the way. jim: matthews and others were ready to get the jump on that we have a pre-snap call here against the lions for five. referee: false start, number 66, offense. five-yard penalty, remains first down. jim: again that's on waddle, who's had to replace ola here for the last quarter at right tackle. the second penalty on him. phil: everybody playing up there. giving up a first down could end the game for the packers, so dom capers being aggressive with the play call.
jim: it's given to bell. and he's backed up by one or two yards and again it's the rookie ryan comes up to make the play and a time-out called by the packers at three minutes. that sets up now a second and 16 for the lions. again, coming up, "the mazda postgame show," interviews and analysis of tonight's game. if you're the lions, do you run it again to force the packers to take their last time-out? phil: oh, man, after what we've seen, would i give the football back to aaron rodgers and take that chance? to think he only needs a field goal. that's pretty tough to do. i look at it and say safe play. they've had some success with screens. but if you're going to try to win the game, you're going to
have to throw it against tight coverage, most likely on the outside. jim: they go to the shotgun with ameer abdullah the running back. and here's the safe throw. tate forced down at about the 18 and the last time-out called by green bay with a third and 12 on the way. phil: you're right. throw the screen. hoping to catch them in an aggressive defense and take advantage of it. but green bay, the defense, after that terrible start, the turnover where they got seven easy points, the defense, they're showing their speed. their complex. they've played well. jim: well, to think when these two met three sundays ago, it was a two-point detroit win. 18-16. and the margin is two for the lions at the moment. phil: there's no question now you can't play safe if you're detroit. you have to try to get the first
down, go down the field with the football too win the game. -- to win the game. jim: third and 12. first down yardage at the 30. from the pocket, the pass, it is caught! by jones! just his third catch of the year. phil: protection was great. jones is on the inside. he's going to go down. that little move to the outside, beat quentin rollins inside. the little head fake gave him enough separation and matt stafford, good protection. just threw a bullet in there for a completion. jim: and it was a clean catch. bobbled it for a moment but had the hand underneath. jordy nelson in disbelief. now, one snap to go before the two-minute warning. t.j. jones seeing action tonight
verizon has the largest 4g lte network. what does that mean? well, pretend jj watt is your signal. it means even out here, way out here, you'll find your signal working hard. really, really hard. because that's what a strong network does. that, and play football. watch live local and prime-time games on nfl mobile. only on verizon.
jim: we're back with the packers out of time-outs. second down coming. what is the best situation green bay can hope for? phil: probably around 30 seconds, maybe a little less. depends on the length of the play that is detroit runs here on second and third down. jim: it's bell. brought down behind the line. a couple of yards' loss there. mike daniels. this next snap won't occur until a little under 1:20 to go. and again, that time-out that you'd have loved to have had, but you had to call it before they set up a play for fourth and a foot. phil: that's right, maybe he
wouldn't have gotten the first down if he didn't call the time-out. there's no doubt, the detroit lions. they are going to run the football. you don't want to attempt a pass and give aaron rodgers, in case, it's incomplete, any extra time to get down for the field goal. jim: bell gives back two more. and it will be right at about 30 seconds. when they punt the football. "the mazda postgame show," interviews and analysis of tonight's game is coming up next. phil: well, the big thing is, when the packers get this football, if you're detroit's defense, too, what was the original plan to start tonight? let's keep aaron rodgers in the pocket. that's what the defense wanted to do. they haven't done a very good job of it, really. when he's gotten out of the pocket to throw the ball, the receivers have been covered. jim: so the punter still stands on the sideline.
they've called a time-out there. and around these parts here, in the state of michigan, you get late in the game, you don't take anything for granted after what happened in that much-michigan state game. phil: oh, that's a good penny. we were all watching that that night. i forgot where we were but it was -- or that afternoon. jim: i do remember, though, poor tracy. she loves her wolverines, her alma mater, and to say she was crushed is an understatement. you know where we were? we were in green bay getting ready for the chargers and packers the next day. here we go. and he hut the -- hit the ground but no flag and the fair catch by hyde at the 20 with 2 seconds left. the packers got somewhat close in on martin. phil: yes, that was a little closer than they wanted, i'm sure, for detroit. jim:
