It was a scene that created smiles and laughter, especially from the Packers’ faithful: AJ Dillon conducted the Packers “orchestra” in the end zone after scoring a 4th-quarter TD in last week’s win over Minnesota. Packers fans are hopeful that Dillon will have his imaginary baton in hand this week for a repeat performance when the Pack faces the Lions with a playoff spot on the line.
Dillon scored on a two-yard TD run on the first play of the fourth quarter giving the Packers a 34-3 lead over the Vikings. It was the fifth straight game that Dillon scored a rushing TD, making his one of nine Packers players in team history to score a rushing TD in five straight games or more.
