Packers Recover Surprise Onside Kick Against Bears

Kyle Newport@@KyleNewportFeatured ColumnistNovember 5, 2013

In what has turned into a battle of backup quarterbacks, Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy decided to surprise the Chicago Bears with an onside kick in the third quarter.

Here's a slower look at the recovery:

Kicker Mason Crosby hit the ball perfectly to get a high bounce, and Green Bay's Jamari Lattimore, who also blocked a punt earlier in the game, ended up with the football. 

It came after the Packers had just tied the game at 17 early in the third quarter. McCarthy's bold decision paid off, as the Packers got a field goal to take a 20-17 lead.
