The snow was coming down heavy. Seconds ago, the Green Bay Packers allowed a punt that was blocked. It was then returned and went on to be a touchdown which resulted in the game being tied.
The fiasco of the special team was not the fault of Aaron Rodgers. In fact, there exists no QB who could perform miracles at Lambeau Field in that kind of frigid weather.
Another Disappointing Playoff For The Green Bay Packers
However, the legacy of Aaron Rodgers was being made during the game’s final 4 minutes and 41 seconds. When Rodgers does retire, the narrative will not be about the special teams of the Green Bay Packers. Rather, they will talk about how Rodgers had one of the greatest ever careers but he only reached 1 Super Bowl.
This is the exact situation Rodgers had to confront as the game between the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers stood tied at 10-10. The offense of the Green Bay Packers had struggled in that much snow. However, Rodger had an opportunity to make a drive and carry the Packers into the championship game of the NFC.
The Green Bay Packers went 3-and-out. After the punt by the Packers, Jimmy Garoppolo managed to string together some completions. Deebo Samuel made an amazing run on 3d-and-7. That set up an attempt at a field goal for Robbie Gould. Gould scored the goal as the clock ticked down to zero. The final score stood 13-10 in favor of the 49ers. They will face the Los Angeles Rams on the road.
The majority of the attention is going to be on the blocked punt as the aftermath of the loss. However, with time, it will probably just fade away. Once more, the possible MVP Aaron Rodgers missed out on a win in the playoffs.
