The first quarter of the Packers-Chargers game featured five turnovers. One was an interception resulting from intense pressure applied on quarterback Aaron Rodgers by rookie linebacker Melvin Ingram.
Ingram, the 18th overall pick in the draft, also applied a fairly solid hit to Rodgers on what turned out to be the reigning league MVP’s final play of the game.
The good news (if there is any) for the Packers is that Ingram wasn’t beating the starting left tackle, Marshall Newhouse, but reserve Herb Taylor.
Rodgers completed only two of eight passes for 16 yards. In addition to the interception, Rodgers lost a fumble.
Jets fans will be paying close attention to the early portion of Ingram’s career. With Ingram on the board when the Jets used the 16th overall pick, New York took linebacker Quinton Coples instead.
