I doubt that. Beiber weighs about 140 soaking wet and I doubt hes ever been in a fight in his life.

No way, he's a thug. Justin Bieber And Orlando Bloom Maybe, Possibly Just Had The Lamest Fight Ever (UPDATE)

Yeah... I dream that little nitwit (Beiber) would take a swing at me without his security around.

It's been a wild year, as far as injuries and performance go. I was looking at my fantasy football team and realized I only have two starters on my team from the beginning of the season. I've personally only lost Marshawn Lynch to injury, but I've only got Chris Ivory and AJ Green starting anymore, while I've ended up benching or dropping such supposed stars as Randall Cobb, Jimmy Graham (dropped before injury), Demaryius Thomas, and Jeremy Hill. I've been winning with has-beens and never-beens like Gio Bernard, Amari Cooper, Matthew Stafford, and Zach Miller.

I don't remember a year with quite so much injury and underperformance by major stars. Am I just suffering recency bias, or is it truly unusual this year?

+1 that is two games in a row with incredible finishes... Monday night's end of game block of a field goal and run back for a TD and last night's successful Hail Mary.

My thoughts exactly. No time left (I mean zero seconds) and because of a "questionable face mask penalty", Rodgers get's one more chance. Although I think they were robbed of a pass interference call the play before. What a pass (60+ yds) and what a catch. That may become the new video to define a Hail Mary pass.

+2 on both counts. In live action, the penalty looked like a face mask but in slow motion, the call was questionable as there was just the slightest touching of the facemask. The play before I think too should have been a pass interference. Even if they are both looking at the ball, the defender shouldn't be able to just run into the receiver like he did.

The execution of the Hail Mary seemed almost like the only two players ready were QB Rodgers and TE Rodgers every else seemed to be standing around.

It was the worst defended Hail Mary pass that I've seen. The receiver was so wide open and the defenders seem lost. No wonder why the Lions are 4-8

Yeah. All the Lions' defenders were behind the Packers' receivers instead of any in front.

No matter what that face mask call looked like in slow motion, every person watching the game thought is was an obvious face mask call in real time. The refs have been bad this year but they cant be blamed this time.

Why was the Detroit guy any where near Rodgers' head? Rodgers wasnt going to outrun 2 defenders and he couldn't throw the ball again. Detroit can only blame themselves on that play and on the Hail Mary play.

No reason not to try a Hail Mary pass in that situation. Low odds of success, there will always be some that pay off, it's a free for all that you really can't defend 100%. Fun when your team pulls it off, sucks when your team is the 'victim.' Just like the 3/4 court basketball buzzer beater to win a game...

Lions had plenty of time to salt away the game. I thought they were playing way too chicken (especially since Stafford is a gun slinger) their final possession. Good teams play to win. Bad teams play not to lose.
