LeGarrette Blount capped off a Detroit Lions scoring drive to put them on the board against the Green Bay Packers!
Ameer Abdullah fields Mason Crosby’s kick at the goal line and takes it to the 29-yard-line.
Matthew Stafford throws to Marvin Jones on a 12-yard route that slips through the receivers hands on first down. Kerryon Johnson gets the ball on second down and gets to the edge on his way to a 16-yard pickup that’ll move the chains to make it first-and-10 at the 45.
Stafford is pressured on his first-down throw and slings it sidearmed to Johnson for a gain of 3. Johnson gets the handoff on second down and picks up 6 to make it third-and-1. LeGarrette Blount takes his first carry of the game and gets just enough for a first down at the Green Bay 45-yard-line.
Blount is handed the ball again on the next play and loses a yard. Stafford takes it in the shotgun on second down and throws back-shoulder to Theo Riddick, who’s unable to come up with it. Third-and-11 coming up. Stafford is pressured on third down and launches one deep to Kenny Golladay, who makes a magnificent catch while diving backward into the end zone.
Frank Ragnow is called for illegal use of the hands, however, so the play is void and it’ll be third-and-21 at the Detroit 44-yard-line.
Injury: Packers defensive lineman Kenny Clark remains down after the play.
With a mile to reach the first down marker, it’s Johnson on the draw for a gain of 4.
Sam Martin’s punt rolls off Green Bay blocker Kevin King after a bounce and is picked up by Jamal Agnew at the 1-yard-line, making it Lions ball with first-and-goal coming up.
Mike McCarthy throws the challenge flag, thinking it may have touched a Lions player. The play will be reviewed.
After further review, the play stands. Lions ball at the 1.
Blount gets the ball and barrels his way into the end zone for his first touchdown as a Detroit Lion.
