This game just got a lot more interesting. (Translation: DON'T EVER THINK ABOUT TURNING OFF ESPN's COVERAGE OF "MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL"!)
Minutes ago, Green Bay was driving for a score that would have given them at least a 20-point lead. Now the Packers are clinging to a 17-14 lead after the Ravens capitalized on consecutive turnovers.
A fumble by Donald Driver halted the Packers' scoring drive, leading to an 11-play drive that culminated in Kelley Washington's 12-yard touchdown reception. A pass went off Driver's leg on the Packers' next offensive play, leading to an interception that set up Willis McGahee's 1-yard touchdown run.
Things have moved so fast I've re-written this post five times before getting a chance to post it. Hang on folks. This should be fun. Will the Packers totally self-destruct or can they hang on?
