Packers Use Fake Field Goal to Score Pivotal Touchdown in Win Over Bears (Video)

In a game that featured Aaron Rodgers and Jay Cutler at quarterback, it was Tim Masthay who threw the first touchdown pass in Thursday night's Packers-Bears game.

It was by technicality, of course, as it was Masthay who "connected" with Tom Crabtree for a 27-yard touchdown "pass" near the end of the first half.

The Packers used the old fake field goal on fourth-and-26 to give themselves a 10-0 lead shortly before the second quarter ended on the way to winning 23-10 in a big matchup of NFC North rivals.

Crabtree had an interesting take on Friday morning on Twitter in regards to his touchdown scamper.

See the gutsy play call and touchdown in the video below.
