Packers let Rams control the clock, lose 29-27

It came down to the final minutes. The Green Bay Packers were clinging to a one-point lead but allowed the Los Angeles Rams to drive all the way down the field and add the winning field goal to go up 29-27 and win the game.

A crucial fumble on the ensuing kickoff ended the Packers hopes for a comeback.

The Packers came out hot in the first quarter going up 10-0, but the momentum didn't last long and found themselves behind by a 10-point margin later in the game.

Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers found some success on some long passes, including the 40-yard touchdown strike to Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Rodgers was also sacked three times. 

Early in the game with the Packers up 10-0, the Rams pinned the Packers at their own one-yard-line. On the very next play, the Rams tackled Packers' running back Aaron Jones for a safety.

The Packers could not find an answer for Rams' running back Todd Gurley. Gurley was the Rams top runner and receiver on Sunday, rushing for 114 yards and catching six passes for 81 yards. 

With Sunday's loss, the Packers are back to .500 at 3-3-1. They are 0-3 on the road. The Rams are still perfect at 8-0.
