Aaron Rodgers is still an MVP-caliber player, he proved it last night.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback, who has not been playing at his All-World level in the past few weeks under center - changed all that on Thursday Night Football with his incredible Hail Mary touchdown throw.

Rodgers' 61-yard bomb broke the hearts of Lions fans at Ford Field, and, incredibly, one Detroit supporter captured his team's losing play in an amazing video.

Thanks to Instagram user Brandon Movitz, whose view came from the line of scrimmage roughly 10 rows behind the Detroit Lions sideline, we get to see the sheer height and overall distance the football travelled after leaving Rodgers' hand.

When Packers defensive lineman B.J. Raji said, "I thought it was going to hit the ceiling," he really wasn't kidding.

Check out the video of the throw here, which stats nerds have now calculated travelled around 90 yards - thanks to how high the ball sailed.

With the win, Green Bay bucked a losing trend that saw them put up L's in four of their last five games.

This doesn't mean that their season is saved, however, as their rivals the Minnesota Vikings still currently sit atop the NFC North with a month of the regular season left to go.
