Aaron Jones' TD run gives Packers 26-20 OT win over Bucs

But the Packers' 26-20 overtime win - one day after Aaron Rodgers' first practice since October - was crucial toward keeping the season alive.

The wrist injury that landed Green Bay Packers running back Ty Montgomery on injured reserve will require surgery, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Hundley's 14-yard run on a read-option converted a third-and-2, and a 14-yard pass to Davante Adams, paired with a roughing-the-passer penalty on defensive end William Gholston, gave the Packers a first down at the 14.

The Detroit Lions losing Sunday at Baltimore leaves them at 6-6, and they host the Packers in Week 17 in what could be a crucial game - even with the Minnesota Vikings running away with the NFC North. But with Williams needing a rest, Jones entered the game and scored the game-winner.

On a flawless December day for offensive football, the Packers blocked a punt (even if statistically what Kyler Fackrell did was not considered a block), scored a defensive touchdown on Dean Lowry's fumble recovery and sacked Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston seven times. It was the second-most sacks in Green Bay's history as the Packers took advantage of the Bucs' decimated offensive line.

Clay Matthews, who had 3.5 sacks all season, had 2.5 on Sunday for his most in game since 2014.

Jameis Winston threw two touchdown passes to Cameron Brate in the quarterback's shaky return from a shoulder injury. Fackrell's blocked punt - which wasn't officially a block since the ball went past the line of scrimmage - led to a short-field touchdown drive capped Williams' 1-yard run to give the Packers a 10-7 lead in the second quarter. He passed for 270 yards and two touchdowns and running back Peyton Barber ran for 102 yards. Brett Hundley had runs of 18 and 7 yards on the drive to start overtime.

The Bucs (4-8) gained 395 yards. Making his sixth start with Rodgers sidelined with a broken collarbone, Hundley completed 13-of-22 passes for 84 yards and one interception. Justin Evans made the pick.
