Aaron Rodgers threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Andrew Quarless with 3 seconds left Sunday, and the Green Bay Packers rallied past the Miami Dolphins 27-24.

Green Bay twice gave up leads and trailed 24-17 before Rodgers directed a 68-yard drive for a field goal with 4:09 to go.

The Packers quickly forced a punt to start at their 40 with 2:04 left, and Rodgers hit Jordy Nelson on fourth-and-10 for 18 yards to keep the winning drive alive.

Rodgers finished with three touchdown passes and 264 yards while committing no turnovers.

The Packers (4-2) earned their third consecutive victory and won in Miami for only the second time ever. The Dolphins (2-3) lost despite the return of six starters who had missed playing time.
