Shohei Ohtani’s recent announcement sure to advance global baseball interest
Packers fans were not happy with Aaron Rodgers, their offense or their season after losing to the Titans on Thursday Night Football.
Sunday’s win over the Cowboys was supposed to be the turning point for the Packers. The offense looked lively. The team looked ready to make a push for the playoffs.
Then Thursday happened and Green Bay was right back where they were before with a loss to the Titans.
The offense was fruitless. The defense was susceptible. And in front of the home crowd, the team looked far from playoff caliber.
The boo birds came out early after a six-point first half. They returned at the end of the game as Aaron Rodgers and company failed to close the gap in the 27-17 loss.

Packers fans let their dissatisfaction be heard at Lambeau Field. Rival fans at home absolutely loved to hear it.
The booing of the Packers at home is music to my ears! 💯🙌🏾😂

Packers fans booing the team as they leave the field at the half trailing the Titans 14-6.
When have you ever heard that in Green Bay towards the home team?#TNF

Fans were booing for a reason. It was a frustrating performance for Rodgers and Green Bay in general.

Now read that again and let it soak in.

The last three offensive drives for the #Packers were absolutely horrible.
– 10 combined plays, 8 total yards, 0 points, 4:19 time off the clock
The boo’s are coming out at Lambeau Field.

Joe Barry’s defense surrendered 337 passing yards to the 31st ranked Tennessee Titans tonight. The last time Aaron Rodgers had a 300-yard game was December 12th of last season. This is how the Packers’ playoff hopes die

Aaron Rodgers overthrows an open receiver so badly it ends up hitting Twitter HQ and causes it to explode, killing Twitter forever.

Rodgers finished with 227 yards and two touchdowns but the passes he missed were far more meaningful than the ones he made.
Christian Watson at least continued his ridiculous breakout week with two more touchdowns to bring his total since Sunday to five.
The focus has definitely fallen on the Packers’ struggles but kudos are due for Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry and the Titans for their dominant performance on the road.
Tannehill threw an interception but made up for it by hitting 22-of-27 passes for 333 yards and two touchdowns. Henry rushed for 87 yards and a touchdown while also completing a three-yard jump pass to Austin Hooper for a score.
