Mike McCarthy can finally breathe, and exhale after his team was on the receiving end of an unbelievable call and finish to a game.

For four long years, McCarthy and the Packers were associated with the infamous “Fail Mary” back in 2012 against the Seattle Seahawks.

On Thursday night, the Pack came up with their own miraculous ending when Aaron Rodgers heaved a 61-yard bomb for the 27-23 win over the Detroit Lions.

McCarthy had been holding this zinger for years.

“I will just say this: At least our guy really caught the ball in this one,” coach Mike McCarthy said with a small smirk, via ESPN.com. “You can quote that.”

Richard Rodgers definitely caught the ball, but only because Lions defensive end Devin Taylor was called for a phantom penalty after grazing Aaron Rodgers’ facemask to set up the final play.
