Packers DB Ha Ha Clinton-Dix clutch in win over Detroit

Raymond Carlin III - USA TODAY Sports

Green Bay received an answered prayer Thursday night, when a 61-yard pass from quarterback Aaron Rodgers was brought in by Richard Rogers for the game-winning touchdown as time expired. The Rodgers combination got it done on offense, but Packers’ safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix anchored its defense.

A former Alabama standout, Clinton-Dix recorded seven tackles (four unassisted), a tackle for loss, a sack and two quarterback hurries in Green Bay’s 27-23 win over the Lions.  

Detroit would total 101 rushing yards, but it came on 25 carries. Clinton-Dix held Lions’ running back Ameer Abdullah to 67 yards rushing on 13 carries. Clinton-Dix leads the team in tackles (87) and is tied for the lead in interceptions (two).

Green Bay (8-4) remains second in the NFC North, behind Minnesota (8-3). It will return home next week and face the Dallas Cowboys at Lambeau Field.
