Aaron Rodgers Has Worst Game Of Career In Ugly Loss To Cowboys
Aaron Rodgers had arguably the worst game of his career on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. And Green Bay Packers fans let him know of it.Advertisement
Rodgers has often times decimated the Cowboys but it’s been a season of upsets and the Packers were humbled 30-16 during their Week 6 loss.
During the fourth quarter, passionate Packers fans at the Lambeau Field booed Rodgers and his team after safety Morgan Burnett became the first player this season to pick off Dallas Cowboys rookie Dak Prescott.
The crowd rained down thunderous boos as Rodgers walked off the field after three unsuccessful plays.
Most oddsmakers gave Packers fighting odds to win Sunday’s game. But it seemed like the 2011 Super Bowl champions were outclassed on both ends of the floor by a young and hungry Cowboys outfit.

Aaron Rodgers: What’s wrong?
It’s hard to understand why but Rodgers didn’t look like a starting caliber QB on Sunday.
Some of his plays would have given Packers fans enough reason to cringe.
There was one particular play in which he sailed a pass over Randall Cobb’s head. Typically, that play would have been an easy 16-yard touchdown on second down for a QB of Rodgers’ caliber.
After that, the two-time MVP threw an extremely low third-down pass that was easily batted down.
It was almost an embarrassing performance.
Rodgers entered the game as the NFL’s least accurate passer (this season), finishing only 56.1 percent of his passes. Once again, he looked totally out of sync with his receivers.
If you include Sunday’s game, Rodgers has now gone 14 consecutive games without a 300-yard passing game (including playoffs).
Packers legend Brett Farve weighed on on Rodgers persisting struggles.
“It gets to where it’s a mental struggle to just block it out and play,” Favre said after Sunday’s game.
“Aaron Rodgers is a great quarterback. That’s not going to change. Do you have spurts where you don’t play as well? Sure. And then you press. And when you press usually bad things happen,” added the iconic Packer.
Despite Rodgers’ struggle, it’s a miracle that the 3-2 Packers have a winning record this season.
But they will need to get their act together quickly as Aaron Rodgers & Co. face the Chicago Bears on Thursday.
