Green Bay just finished off a 95-yard drive against the Panthers' defense, which has to be embarrassed about allowing the Packers to go the length of the field like that. The TD came on a five-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers to Donald Lee, and that made it 21-19.
With 5:17 to go in the third quarter, the Packers decided to go for two points and tie the game at 21. That worked like a charm, too, as Rodgers threw a pass to a wide-open Greg Jennings, and just like that, the Panthers' 11-point halftime lead had evaporated.
The drive was keyed when Donald Driver, 1-on-1 against newly rich Carolina CB Chris Gamble, burned him for a 46-yard reception. That got Green Bay out of a hole on its own 5.
