LATTIMORE BLOCKS A PUNT
With the Packers trailing, 7-3, in the first quarter, LB Jamari Lattimore smothered a punt by Bears P Adam Podlesh. Rookie S Chris Banjo recovered for Green Bay at the Chicago 32-yard line, and one snap later, RB James Starks blasted up the middle for his second TD run in as many games, giving the Packers the lead back.
LACY RAMBLES 56 YARDS DOWN THE SIDELINE
On the Packers’ first play from scrimmage in the second half, RB Eddie Lacy ran through a huge hole on the right side and took off down the far sideline, going 56 yards in all down to the 1, Lacy’s longest run during a 150-yard night. He took it in for the TD on the next snap to tie the score at 17.
PACKERS RECOVER SURPRISE ONSIDE KICK
Right after Lacy’s game-tying TD, Lattimore made yet another huge play on special teams. The Packers called for a surprise onside kick, and K Mason Crosby chopped one of his patented high-bouncers, catching the Bears off-guard. Rookie CB Micah Hyde had the first crack at recovering it for Green Bay, but ultimately Lattimore emerged from the bottom of the pile with the ball. The Packers took advantage of the stolen possession to drive for a go-ahead field goal.
