The Packers got knocked over to 3–2 on their Sunday match rising up short against the Giants (4–1) in a 27–22 loss at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.
Even though there was a 20–10 lead all the way up till halftime, Green Bay were unable to retain their advantage thanks, in part due to a second-half meltdown that saw the defense resign 14 unanswered points. Aaron Rodgers and the offense managed to muster up about 115 yards across three drives, two of which ended in punts.
They allowed Giants quarterback Daniel to finish 13 of 14 passes during the second half of the game for 136 of his 217 passing yards. He had also eight of his nine rushes (for 34 of his 37 yards) in the second half. The Packers ended up with seven penalties, three of them by cornerback Rasul Douglas. Two of them annihilated sacks, and one of them a miffed Douglas stated that the official called because he told him, “You’re bigger than him.”
Douglas told everybody that it was his fault and that he had three uncharacteristic penalties, that he usually doesn’t get but which he got, and that he messed up the whole defense.
Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander claimed that he wasn’t worried at the moment but if they lost next week, that he would be. But he also claimed that everybody was adjusting to London and their new sleep patterns and everything.
Aaron Rodgers who heard Alexander’s statements eventually made a statement of his own statement that he did not like the idea of losing and that he is a believer of words and manifestation. He states that there was someone who stated this as well in the locker room but he would like to maintain a positive attitude and doesn’t want anybody on his team taking the next match lightly. Aaron Rodgers, a Super Bowl MVP who’s piloted various winning seasons over the past couple of years, is determined to win and is clearly trying to do all that he possibly can to endrantee that the Packers continue to keep their eyes on the prize.
Previous to Sunday’s match, Rodgers conveyed his particular enthusiasm about his visit to London. He wanted to go over early to be able to experience a bit of the culture, be able to go out, see sights and to interact with fans, and even grab a drink and try the local brew. He has been talking about it for years and is finally excited to be able to play a home game in the city.
Green Bay’s appearance in London gave many an opportunity to see their favorite quarterback for the very first time. Following the game, Rodgers stated that the acceptance in the UK was special, saying the atmosphere was like a home game while also apologizing for the disjointed execution. He stated that the crowd was incredible and that the fans were loud and that the experience was outstanding. He hopes that the team gets a chance to go back to London to play once more and that he will remember the experience for a long time. He said that he would love to come back but that it remains to be seen where he will be in the future and how many years later it may occur.
Aaron Rodgers who was born on December 2, 1983, is an American football quarterback for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL). He has won Super Bowl Champion(XLV), Super Bowl MVP(XLV), and more.
