WATCH: Packers’ Aaron Rodgers Hits Allen Lazard for 35-yard TD vs. Lions
Aaron Rodgers wasn’t going to let the Detroit Lions secondary get the best of him, especially on Monday Night Football. After throwing an interception in the red zone, the Green Bay Packers constructed a seven-play, 79-yard drive spanning just 3:14 to narrow Detroit’s lead to two.
The Packers’ drive was capped off by a beautiful 35-yard touchdown pass from Rodgers to wide receiver Allen Lazard.

The throw by Rodgers simply could not have been better. Every wide receiver hopes their quarterback sets them up as Rodgers does, but words don’t describe the physical catch by the second-year wide receiver. With the cornerback all over him, Lazard swiped the ball right where the defender couldn’t make a play on it. Then, while falling to the ground, he adjusted to keep it in his possession.
Lazard’s touchdown was an excellent start to the Packers’ comeback efforts.
