Rodgers didn't enjoy his trip to LA.
Aaron Rodgers and the Greenbay Packers were expected to end the Los Angeles Rams' undefeated run on Sunday afternoon. That didn't happen. The game was a constant battle, with the Rams going down 10 to 0 early in the day. I was sitting right along the sidelines for the game, and was shocked by the amount of Packers fans that attended the LA Memorial Coliseum game. Los Angeles had no football team for decades before the Rams returned two seasons ago, which means residents supported other teams for years. Those who decided to become Packers fans were severely disappointed when Green Bay lost by two points.
The Rams took a 29-27 lead in the final two minutes of the fourth quarter, and kicked the ball to a team that has been known to come back in the waning minutes of any game. According to NFL columnist Michael Silver, Ty Montgomery was instructed to take a knee in the end zone for a touchback if the kickoff was sent that deep. The kickoff did end up in the end zone, but Montgomery decided to take it out. His move would have been epic if the Packers won, but they didn't. Montgomery ended up fumbling the ball on the return, which was recovered by the Rams. Rodgers never got a chance to touch the ball again. "Aaron was hot," one Packers coach told Silver. "And he had a right to be. He yelled, 'Take a fucking knee!' He was very, very mad." The Packers now sit at 3-3-1.
