Packers Pick-Off Rams ; improve to 5-0
The Green Bay Packers beat the St. Louis Rams and improved to 5-0, but in a sloppy way. First off, not only did Aaron Rodgers throw his first interception a Lambeau Field in over 2 and a half years but he threw two. One pick was when James Lauranitis lunged out to reach a ball that was tipped at the line of scrimmage. Then, late in the first half Rodgers was intercepted when Jermaine Johnson snatched the ball that was intended for Ty Montgomery. Rodgers then fumbled when Chris Long stripped Aaron Rodgers of the ball in the throwing motion.
Although Green Bay turned the ball over three times, their defense manhandled the St. Louis offense. They forced Nick Foles to throw four interceptions and got to Foles virtually every snap. One pick was returned for a touchdown by Quinten Rollins, who played basketball for four years and then switched to football, and he had another won to seal the victory. Micah Hyde intercepted a pass intended for Lance Kendricks and Ha Ha Clinton Dix picked one off in the endzone to end a Rams drive deep into the Redzone.
On the first drive for the Packers, Rodgers fired a 31-yard pass to a wide open Ty Montgomery, who ran into the endzone untouched. James Jones caught a 65-yard touchdown pass that was reviewed by the officials but ended up a score. Aaron Rodgers rushed for 39 yards.
Titletown is undefeated.
