FINAL: Green Bay Packers 26, Miami Dolphins 20

Almost all the way

After the Dolphins took a 3-0 lead on the opening drive, Cason Nixon put the Packers in great field position by returning the ensuing kickoff 94 yards to put Green Bay inside the Miami 10-yard line. The Packers couldn’t take full advantage, settling for a field goal.

Roll over for six!

Jaylen Waddle took Tagovailoa’s pass the distance, turning a 10-yard reception into an 84-yard touchdown that put Miami up 10-3.

Got a Marcedes for Christmas

When Rodgers found it, Green Bay finally reached the end zone Marcedes Lewis wide open to tie the game at 10-10.

In search of Tyreek

Tagovailoa’s favorite gift this season was Tyreek Hill, and he contacted him again at Christmas. The star receiver hauled in a 52-yard catch to put the Dolphins on the Packers’ 1-yard line. Jeff Wilson ran for a touchdown on the next play to give Miami a 17-10 lead.

Not on Miami’s watch

The Packers tried to keep their drive going by running a fake punt on fourth down deep in their own territory. The dolphins sniffed out the fake faster than Santa sniffs out cookies on Christmas Eve.

Big fourth down conversion

Rodgers used the play-action to his advantage by finding Christian Watson open for a first down to help the Packers set up a field goal and make it 20-13 at halftime.

Slide to the left

Rodgers went left and found Lewis again, but this time for 30-plus yards to set up the Packers at the Dolphins’ 7-yard line.

Excellent AJ

AJ Dillon made his way into the end zone just two plays after a deep pass from Rodgers to tie the game early in the third.

Watson is done for the day

Rodgers and the Packers will be without their top receiver in the final weeks until the end of Christmas, as Watson has been ruled out with a hip injury. He had six receptions for 49 yards the day before he left.

Dolphins defense gets pick … but was PI?

Rodgers wanted it all on third-and-15, launching a pass into the end zone Allen Lazard. Kohou frame though made a play to get an interception for the Dolphins, it appeared he could have gotten away with some contact.

“Ball don’t lie,” at least for Packers fans

On the play immediately following Rodgers’ interception, the Packers got the ball back when Tagovailoa threw the ball right into Jair Alexander to give Green Bay great field position.

A gift for De’Vondre Campbell

Tagovailoa threw another interception right at the Packers LB as the Dolphins were driving to either tie the game or take the lead.

Tua turnover

The Dolphins quarterback had his third interception in his last three dry runs when his final pass of the game went right into Rasul Douglassealing a 26-20 victory for the Packers.
