Packers hang on for win over the Panthers

Sunday, November 10th, 2019

At the end of the first half, with two seconds on the clock and a single yard to cover, the Packers kept the ball on the ground rather than letting Aaron Rodgers throw it. The Packers improved to 8-2 with a nerve-wracking 24-16 win over the Panthers, hammering them in the second half with a run game and a defense which should serve them well the rest of the way.
