Aaron Rodgers bounced back from one of the worst first halves of his career to throw two second half touchdowns, Mason Crosby hit a game-winning field goal as time expired and the Packers beat the Lions 23-20 Sunday to clinch a first round playoff bye.

With the win, Green Bay automatically advances through the first round of the NFC Playoffs. They will be at worst the No. 2 seed in the NFC and can clinch the No. 1 seed if the Seahawks beat the 49ers on Sunday Night Football.
