Although the Packers’ offense couldn’t get into the end zone, the first turnover-free game of the season is a big part of the reason that Green Bay won 9-0
Said Packers CB Charles Woodson, “We ain’t no underdog. Don’t buy into that. We’re a good football team. We’ve had some injuries, and some close games haven’t gone our way. But underdogs, we are not.”
Packers P Tim Masthay landed five punts inside the 20-yard line, and coach Mike McCarthy praised him for making the difference in the field position battle: “He was huge for us today. Tim is inexperienced in this league, but you can see him getting better and better. I feel he has improved as the games have gone on. There is no lack of talent. He has very good leg strength and very good fundamentals.”
Packers WR James Jones had five passes thrown his way but didn’t catch any of them.
A young boy with cystic fibrosis got a great birthday present from Packers LB Clay Matthews.
Said Jets RB LaDainian Tomlinson of the lousy offensive performance, “This is definitely embarrassing.”
Tomlinson became the seventh player in NFL history to have more than 13,000 career rushing yards.
Jets WR Jerricho Cotchery dropped two passes in the fourth quarter and said afterward, “I don’t ever want to play on Halloween again. It was a very frustrating day. I had some plays out there, but there were more plays out there that could have been made.”
The botched fake punt that set up the Packers’ first field goal was a decision that Jets P Steve Weatherford made on his own, and Weatherford acknowledged afterward that he didn’t even know how many yards he needed for a first down.
