The Green Bay Packers beat the Miami Dolphins in the National Football League (NFL) on Sunday (local time) and are still in the running for the playoff spots after winning this key game. The Packers prevailed after a half-time deficit with 26:20 (13:20). The Tampa Bay Buccaneers also celebrated a comeback victory, who are only missing one win to enter the postseason.
In Miami, the team around quarterback Aaron Rodgers benefited from three turnovers by his opponent Tua Tagovailoa in the final quarter. Rodgers threw for 238 yards and a touchdown to lead the Packers to their third straight win. Kicker Mason Crosby scored four field goals in his record game for Green Bay – nobody has recorded 256 appearances in a row so far.
With seven wins and eight losses, Green Bay is still within reach of the New York Giants (8:6:1) and Washington Commanders (7:7:1) in the last two wildcard places of the NFC with two games before the end of the regular season . Miami (8-7) conceded their fourth loss in a row and must tremble in the AFC for participation in the play-offs. Currently you are still on the third wildcard rank.
