Watch: Controversial Facemask Penalty Leads to Aaron Rodgers Game-Winning Hail Mary Pass

During the Thursday Night Football match-up between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions, the Packers overcame a 17-0 first half deficit to win 27-23.

How the Packers were able to pull it off was quite impressive, but also controversial.

Green Bay was able to get the ball down 23-21. On what was supposed to be the final play of the game, quarterback Aaron Rodgers was tackled, but the Lions were flagged for a 15-yard facemask penalty, giving Green Bay one un-timed down from its own 39-yard line.

Rodgers then connected on an incredible 61-yard Hail Mary throw to tight end Richard Rodgers with no time remaining to pull off the comeback.
