Taking the day off for the Packers on Sunday: Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, Charles Woodson and a bunch of others. Taking this particular play off: All functioning portions of kick returner Pat Lee's brain. The ball had already gone into the endzone, bounced off Lee's shins, and then went back out. Lee stayed in the endzone, but reached out of it to grab the ball, then brought it back in and took a knee. You can't do that. Well, I suppose you can, but it's going to be a safety. It was called a safety on the field and was held up upon review, giving the Lions a 9-0 lead. The Packers aren't terribly concerned about winning in week 17, but this still isn't going to make anyone too happy on film day.
