The Packers fans probably wanted some payback after the remembrance of 9.24.2012 @ Seattle, where MD Jennings intercepted the football, but the replacement officials said that Golden Tate had more control of the ball than Jennings (the replacement refs sucked and were very in-diligent. Packers fans came in wearing THE WORST CALL EVER shirts…
Okay, now to the game.
- Rodgers went 31-49 for 318 yards, 4 TDs
- Brees went 35-44 for 446 yards, 3 TDs
Now, Brees threw 128 yards more than Rodgers, but that is not the case.
4th quarter 2:58 left, and the Saints attempt a field goal of 48 yds. John Casey’s kick is good, but Daniel Thomas is called for a 10 yard holding penalty. The Packers declined the penalty to get the ball back
The Packers decided to let Cedric Benson and Randall Cobb run the ball and kill the last 2:50.
Aaron Rodgers had 3 TDs in the 1st half. 2 of those 3 were on connections to James Jones, who had a big game towards receiving, and will be a big part of the Packer offense this season.
