For the first time since Aaron Rodgers took over as quarterback starting in 2008, the Green Bay Packers have a record of under .500 in the first seven games of the season.
After Sunday’s 23-21 loss to the Washington Commanders – the game ended with Rodgers face down on the field after crossing his side with attacking guide Jon Runyan going out of bounds as time ran out term – The 38-year-old QB is outspoken about how Green Bay is on the verge of “Sunday Night Football”‘s upcoming clash with the Buffalo Bills.
“We were the underdog this week, that’s a new point for us,” Rodgers said during a recent appearance on the Pat McAfee Show.
After starting the year 3-1, the Packers have lost three games in a row to the New York Giants, New York Jets and Commanders – all of whom missed last season’s playoffs. Green Bay had more or more penalties than his opponent in all three of those games with a total of 9 kills by Green Bay pass catchers.
Rodgers’ solution: cut the rep and ban players from taking responsibility for those mistakes.
