The Packers spent a fair amount of time trying to add a receiver to the NFL trade deadline, but perhaps they should have looked for a new quarterback.
In what will probably be remembered asAaron Rodgers crashed Sunday with three interceptions during Green Bay’s stunning 15–9 loss to the Lions. That the Packers lost wasn’t necessarily shocking, but it was shocking. how they lost: they just couldn’t score when faced with one of the worst defenses in the NFL.
By Week 9, the Lions were losing an average of 32.1 points per game, which was the worst record in the league by over five points. If the Packers were going to fix their offensive problems against anyone, the Lions seemed like a good candidate. However, this did not happen, and it did not happen because of Rogers, who made many mistakes that were completely uncharacteristic for him.
Rodgers threw two of his three interceptions in the red zone, marking the first time in his career that he had multiple picks in the red zone in the same game. Two balls were intercepted in the end zone, both clearly through the fault of Rodgers. In the first, which kicked off the opening goal from Detroit’s 5-yard line, Rodgers threw the ball low and it bounced off a defenseman’s helmet before being knocked down by Kirby Joseph.
The next choice in the red zone was for the next possession. After the fourth goal in Detroit’s first game, the Packers had a perfect game called offensive lineman David Bakhtiari had the right to catch the pass and it was wide open, but Rodgers let him down and Aidan Hutchinson was able to pick. .
This is usually the roll that Rogers can do in his sleep, but Rogers’ version of 2022 was not as accurate.
Rodgers then scored a hat-trick with an interception when he made his third pick of the day during his second loss in the third quarter.
There were also a few other shots where it looked like the Packers might get a big game, but Rodgers just didn’t put in enough effort.
Rodgers threw for 291 yards and a touchdown, but he made too many mistakes, which he almost never does against division rivals. In this game, for the first time since 2013, he threw multiple interceptions against a division opponent.
At 3-6, the Packers’ season isn’t over yet, but it’s hard to imagine them bouncing back with the way they play offensively. They have now lost five games in a row and their season seems to be spinning out of control.
