0 seconds on the clock, two points down and the best part of 70 yards to find. In other words, perfect hail Mary conditions.
A debatable facemask penalty on what should have the final play gave Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers an untimed down against the Detroit Lions. Aaron Rodgers escaped the Lions defence, lined one up, wound up the arm and launched it. Richard Rodgers was waiting in the end zone and Packers duly celebrated as if they'd won the Superbowl.
Aaron Rodgers + Richard Rodgers:

As for Detroit fans, well at least they have some nice costumes.
