Rejoice - it's a Victory Monday!

Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports

After a thrilling end to yesterday's Packers-Dolphins game, I think we all deserve to get moving a little late on a Monday morning. We Packers fans saw the brilliance of our quarterback on full display in the final two minutes of the game, but he had plenty of help on his way to the end zone from both likely and unlikely sources.

One of the biggest critical plays was made by guard T.J. Lang, who fell on a loose football after Aaron Rodgers was sacked. Another was Jordy Nelson's grab of a Rodgers pass on fourth-and-10, and of course, there's Davante Adams, whose big play will be addressed shortly.

What this all means is that the Packers are 4-2 and remain technically even with the Lions at the top of the NFC North division. Here's a look back at yesterday's big events and comments, and join us after clicking around for more recaps and game coverage.

Adams shows he's earned Rodgers' trust |
Comments from rookie wideout Davante Adams after the game explain just how risky and impressive the fake spike was. As the title suggests, that play and this game in general will likely be something that Rodgers remembers moving forward, and he'll likely reward Adams with more passes.

Packers vs. Dolphins 2014 final score: 3 things we learned from Green Bay's 27-24 win -
Sorry, but we disagree with point two here - saying that "the Packers secondary has depth issues" is silly. Having Davon House and Casey Hayward as the two backups who can step in when BOTH Sam Shields and Tramon Williams go down with injuries in a span of three plays is, in fact, a sign of excellent depth.
