CLINTON-DIX GETS THE PICK
With the Lions looking to extend a 9-3 lead late in the third quarter, QB Matthew Stafford faced third-and-9 from the Green Bay 23. He tried to hit WR Lance Moore on a post route over the middle, but Packers S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix undercut Moore and made a diving interception inside the 10-yard line. It was Clinton-Dix’s second interception of the season.
ABBREDERIS HAULS IT IN, TAKES THE HIT
Trying to rally the Packers in the fourth quarter, QB Aaron Rodgers found WR Jared Abbrederis down the right sideline for a 32-yard gain. Abbrederis took a big hit from Lions S Glover Quin, which knocked the ball out of bounds, but the catch stood and led to a 4-yard TD pass to TE Richard Rodgers. Abbrederis finished with four receptions for 57 yards, his first catches as a pro.
PERILLO HITS PAYDIRT
TE Justin Perillo caught the first TD pass of his career at a good time, an 11-yarder with just 32 seconds left that gave the Packers a chance to tie the game. Unfortunately, a two-point conversion pass intended for WR Davante Adams was knocked away incomplete, and the Packers still trailed by two points.
