For all of you who have been living under a rock for the past few hours, the Green Bay Packers and the Dalls Cowboys just put on a show in the first of two NFL playoff games. Green Bay ran out to a 21-3 lead before Dallas battled back to tie the game twice within the last four minutes. Dallas kicked a field goal with 35 seconds left to tie the game, but those 35 seconds were entirely too much time to write Aaron Rodgers off.
Rodgers led the Packers into field goal range despite running into a 3rd down and 20+ yards to go on the wrong side of the 50 yard line. The following play was one of the most clutch throw and catch plays I’ve ever seen. Check it out below.

The following play was a 51-yard field goal attempt by Mason Crosby that looked like it would miss wide-left, but straightened out and stayed between the uprights, remiscent of Austin Macginnis’ kick against Florida a few years back. You can compare the two yourself.

As for former Cat Randall Cobb, he finished with 7 catches for 62 yards. Those stats include this catch along the sideline as he barely keeps himself in-bounds.
