Rodgers takes blame for poor passing on Thursday night

 | November 18, 2022

The fans were sure to let the team know how disappointed they were.


The Thursday Night Football game didn’t end with the outcome that the Green Bay Packers were looking for and Aaron Rodgers had a few thoughts on it.

The Packers lost to the Tennessee Titans 27-17, falling to a record of 4-7 on the season. Playoff hopes for the team aren’t diminished yet but things are definitely not looking good.

A big problem that the Packers had yesterday was their inability to score once they were in the red zone. Rodgers was also responsible for some errant passes that ended drives.

He commented: “I've got to throw the ball better than I did tonight. Not a lot of margin for error for us and definitely not against a team that gives you some opportunities. We've got to have those plays.”

The Packers did snap a five-game losing streak last week but this week Rodgers and his receivers couldn’t connect downfield.

When asked if something felt different, Rodgers said: “I couldn't tell you [or] point to one thing. I'm not going to make excuses about my thumb. It's been the same since [he hurt it against the] New York [Giants]. I don't know. I've got to go back and look at it.

“I felt like fundamentally I was in a good spot. I just didn't have the same type of consistent grip and ball coming out the same way. I threw a lot of kind of wobblers tonight.

“There was some wind. Just missed a few throws I should have had. Definitely the one to Sammy and the one to Allen.”
