NFL Week 9 Ratings: Ravens get 'A-' for beating Saints, Packers get 'D' for Aaron Rodgers meltdown

NFL Week 9 Ratings: Ravens get ‘A-‘ for beating Saints, Packers get ‘D’ for Aaron Rodgers meltdown

The Packers spent a lot of time trying to add a receiver at the NFL’s trade deadline, but maybe they should have looked for a new quarterback.

In what will probably be remembered as one of the worst games of his career, Aaron Rodgers had a meltdown on Sunday with three interceptions in Green Bay’s stunning 15-9 loss to the Lions. It wasn’t necessarily shocking that the Packers lost, but it was shocking How? ‘Or’ What they lost: They just couldn’t score points against one of the worst defenses in the NFL.

Entering Week 9, the Lions had given up an average of 32.1 points per game, which was the league’s worst by more than five points. If the Packers were going to iron out their offensive issues against anyone, the Lions seemed like a strong candidate. However, that didn’t happen, and it didn’t happen because of Rodgers, who made multiple mistakes that were completely unusual for him.

Rodgers threw two of his three interceptions inside the red zone, marking the first time in his career that he had thrown multiple red zone picks in the same game. Two were intercepted in the end zone, with both clearly Rodgers’ fault. On the first, which came on a first and a goal from the Detroit 5-yard line, Rodgers kicked the ball low and it bounced off a defender’s helmet before being picked up by Kerby Joseph.

The next red zone pick came on the very next possession. On a fourth and a goal from Detroit 1, the Packers had a perfect play called: offensive lineman David Bakhtiari was eligible to catch a pass and he was wide open, but Rodgers knocked him down and Aidan Hutchinson was able to find the choice.

It’s normally a throw Rodgers can make in his sleep, but Rodgers’ 2022 version just wasn’t as accurate.

Rodgers then had the interception hat trick when he threw his third pick of the day on a second down in the third quarter.

There were also a few other pitches where it looked like the Packers might be able to get a big play, but Rodgers just didn’t put in enough.

Rodgers threw for 291 yards and a touchdown, but he made too many mistakes, something he almost never does against division rivals. This game marked the first time since 2013 that he threw multiple interceptions against a division opponent.

At 3-6, the Packers’ season isn’t over, but it’s hard to see them bouncing back with the way their offensive play is. They have now lost five games in a row and their season seems to be spiraling out of control.
