Rodgers, Crosby’s OT FG lead Packers past Pats, Zappe 27-24
Mason Crosby made a 31-yard field goal as time expired in overtime, and the Green Bay Packers topped New England 27-24 to spoil Patriots rookie quarterback Bailey Zappe’s NFL debut.
Zappe played the majority of the game after Brian Hoyer left with a head injury. Aaron Rodgers bounced back from a dreadful first half to continue his recent home mastery of AFC teams.
The Packers are 18-1 in the last 19 home games Rodgers has started against AFC foes.
