Making it work on third down



This is just a case of Rodgers seeing everything, as he often does, and reacting quickly with a smart decision. The Lions botch their pass rush, either due to a miscommunication about a stunt, or because LB Jamie Collins (58) freelances to the detriment of the unit.

Even though he has WR Allen Lazard (13) open for the first down as he breaks the pocket, Rodgers just pump fakes, knowing he can get the yards he needs.
