The Packers were the first to score Thursday night in their game against the Bears, but it took a pair of controversial calls to get the job done. Eddie Lacey scored the first touchdown of the game on a long screen pass from Aaron Rodgers.
Before the touchdown, Rodgers took a shot down field against the Bears secondary, but Tracy Porter pulled down the interception. However, Porter was flagged for what can only be deemed a questionable illegal contact penalty.
Two plays after the penalty, Rodgers dumped the ball off to Lacey who took off down field. As Lacey jumped into the end zone, he flipped the ball right at the goal line.
While the refs took a second look at the call, they were unable to see anything that could prove the ball was dropped early. They came back to the field and announced the call of touchdown would stand.
