Packers vs Browns: Slim crowd at kickoff

  • Packers vs Browns: Slim crowd at kickoff

Josh Gordon had been working toward this moment for four years.

But the Packers potentially kept their season alive long enough to give Aaron Rodgers a chance to return in Week 15 - pending a CT scan scheduled for this week on his broken right collarbone - and rescue Green Bay, still very much alive in the NFC playoff picture at 7-6.

The prettiest play call was saved for the touchdown, as Kizer flipped a shovel pass to Duke Johnson Jr. for the 7-yard score, his third receiving touchdown of the season. Kizer was 1-for-10 with two interceptions throwing to wide receivers in the end zone before his touchdown pass to Gordon. Corey Coleman caught a two-yard third and goal touchdown.

Trailing by 14 points to start the fourth quarter, the Packers opened the final frame up with a touchdown scamper by Jamaal Williams form one-yard out.

The Browns are still looking to secure their first win of the 2017 season.

That's when the bottom fell out.

The Browns extended their lead to 21-7 with 2:49 left in the third quarter.

Two weeks later, the Packers were down 21-6 in Dallas but rallied late to grab a 35-31 win when Rodgers hit Davante Adams for the go-ahead touchdown with 11 seconds left. On a day in which the Browns consistently pinned the Packers inside their own 20-yard line, Cleveland surrendered a big return at the worst possible time, as Trevor Davis took it back 65 yards to the Browns' 25.

Indeed, Kizer played most of the game like a quarterback not thrilled about hearing his bosses, Jimmy Haslam and new GM John Dorsey, this week discuss the need to finally solve the position this offseason.
