Aaron Rodgers: Packers win despite unsustainable poor play


For a moment, it looked like the New England Patriots were going to pull off a big upset against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers behind third quarterback Bailey Zappe.

However, a 13-yard touchdown pass from Rodgers to Romeo Doubs and a game-winning 31-yard field goal from Mason Crosby in overtime carried Green Bay to a victory and a 3–1 record.

Rodgers’ first half wasn’t ideal. The Packers trailed 10-7 after a Pick Six by Jack Jones. He really had to step up to help salvage the victory and he did. He was 21-for-35 with 251 passing yards, two touchdown passes and an interception. He was only fired once.

The Packers won 27-24.

He told reporters after the game that type of play would not help them win games in the future.

“This way of winning, I don’t think, is sustainable because it puts too much pressure on our defense,” he said, via ESPN. “And obviously, I have to play better and I will play better.”

Rodgers admitted that he had to pick himself up at halftime. He said he had a pep talk with himself and offensive lineman David Bakhtiari.

“I’ve been a great player for a long time,” he said, via the team’s website. “There’s not much I need to tell myself. Just play better.”
