Instant Reaction: Packers Survive Dolphins 27-24 After Last-Second TD

The Dolphins put up a real fight, but Aaron Rodgers came through in the clutch to lead the Packers to an important win.

Turning Point: This one came down to the final seconds, when Aaron Rodgers found TE Andrew Quarless with :03 left on the clock to put the Packers up 27-24.

Key Stat: 8-17 - the Packers converted just under 50% of their third down attempts, keeping drives alive and doing just enough to give Green Bay the edge.

Packers MVP: Who else? Aaron Rodgers gets the nod after another massive, clutch performance. Jordy Nelson gets an honorable mention for racking up 107 yards and a TD on 9 catches, but Rodgers made it all possible.

Dolphins MVP: DE Olivier Vernon gave Rodgers a hard time with 1.5 sacks, 7 total tackles (5 solo) and two tackles for a loss. Fellow DE Cameron Wake also gets some love for his three QB hits and an additional sack.

What’s Next? The Packers travel to Carolina to face Cam Newton and the Panthers, while the Dolphins head to Soldier Field to take on the Chicago Bears.
