Green Bay Escapes Cleveland with Overtime Win
Brett Hundley’s 25 yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams with 5:12 left in overtime helped the Packers escape Cleveland with a 27-21 win over the Browns to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. The Packers trailed 21-7 entering the fourth quarter, but rallied to tie the game at 21 with 17 seconds left on a short touchdown pass from Hundley to Adams. That tying score was set up by a 65 yard punt return from Trevor Davis to the Cleveland 25 yard line with just under three minutes to play in regulation. Browns quarterback Deshone Kizer then threw an interception to Green Bay safety Josh Jones on a 3rd & 2 on the first overtime possession to set up Green Bay’s game-winning drive.
Brett Hundley completed 35 of 46 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns in the win. Davante Adams caught 10 passes for 84 yards and the two scores, while Jamaal Williams caught a touchdown pass and ran for a score for the Packers. The 7-6 Packers drop the Browns to 0-13 on the year. Green Bay plays at Carolina next Sunday, kickoff is at Noon.
