The Packers lost Aaron Rodgers and yet another game as the Eagles rushed for 363 yards in a 40-33 win.

The Eagles improved to 10-1, while the Packers fell to 4-8.

Now unlikely to make the postseason, the Packers could see more of Jordan Love the rest of the season. They got a look in Sunday Night Football when Rodgers injured his oblique on a third quarter sack.

Love rallied the Packers, throwing a 63-yard touchdown pass to Christian Watson on his third pass, and led them to a field goal. But it was too little, too late with the Packers unable to stop the Eagles from running up and down the field.

The Eagles had 500 total yards and scored on seven of 10 possessions, not counting the final drive to end it. They punted once, lost a fumble and had a drive end on downs.

It was an impressive offensive performance, or, from the Packers’ standpoint, an embarrassing defensive performance.

Jalen Hurts ran for a career-high 157 yards on 17 carries, and Miles Sanders had 21 carries for 143 yards and two touchdowns. Kenneth Gainwell contributed eight carries for 39 yards and a touchdown.

Behind a dominant offensive line, Hurts also threw for 153 yards and two touchdowns in completing 16 of 28 passes. A.J. Brown and Quez Watkins each had a touchdown reception.

Love finished 6-of-9 for 113 yards and a touchdown in leading the Packers to scores on both of his drives. Watson scored his sixth touchdown of the season.

Rodgers was 11-of-16 for 140 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

He entered hurt and now is further injured.

Rodgers also reportedly has an avulsion fracture in his thumb. With the Packers all but out of the postseason race, Rodgers’ season could be finished.

  1. I live in Australia, have to wake up early morning to watch NFL.

    I always make sure to watch Mahomes , Lamar and Jalen if schedules allow.

    They are so fun to watch. Jalen growth has been incredible. He’s franchise.

  2. If this season has taught us anything, it’s that Matt LaFleur is not NFL head coaching material. Without a HOF QB playing at an elite level, he is totally lost out there. And he didn’t have the guts to bench Rodgers for Love to try to save our season when Rodgers was clearly ineffective because of injury and/or just washed up.

  3. Jets and Eagles DB’s are allowed to get their hands on the receiver early uncalled more than any of the other teams in the league combined.

  4. Not an Eagles fan, but the post game Hurts gave was nothing but class. Take notes Rodgers. You’re not even close to his character….

  5. It should be the end of the Joe Barry era, and that has to be a good thing. All of the defensive failings aren’t on him, but many of them are. Jordan Love looked calm and confident and played well. Who knows what Rodgers will decide to do, and there are other tough decisions to be made on personnel, but the Packers should be able to make a strong rebound next year.

  6. The kid looked good. Love to Watson could be the new Favre to Sharpe or Rodgers to Adams. Stay tuned!!

  7. We’re witnessing the end of this Rodgers incarnation of the Packers.

    I don’t think he plays again for the Packers.

    Just my thoughts.

  8. Philly is the most overrated team in the NFL. NFC is weak collectively but SF, DAL, and maybe even MINN will win it over the “Iggles”.

    The end of an era.

    The end of an error is more appropriate.

    Filthadelphia didn’t beat the Packers, the Packers beat themselves.

    ——————-
    I’m an Atlanta fan and even I know the eagles gave them 3 short fields, fumbled, special teams stunk, and turnover on downs. This game should’ve been over by halftime and the eagles could have scored 70 points if they didn’t run so much clock running for 400 yards. The Packers never had a chance. It’s okay to be bitter though. My team stinks too.

  11. Word is the GB plane left Joe Barry and the defense on the tarmac. In other news father time is catching up to Rodgers quickly.

  12. As a fan of neither team – that was a really fun game to watch with a lot of interesting story lines going on.

  13. Felt like I was back in the eighties watching bully ball Only thing missing where big shoulder pads big neck braces and the big clubs made out of tape on their hands

  14. So good to see the Pack reclaiming their historical slot at the bottom of the division. Hard to believe 2 consecutive HOF QB’s only produced 2 SB’s. Check back in 3 yeats when they find another SB calibrate QB

    Just my thoughts.
    —————
    Yup. Rodgers won’t be back next year. I’d Love plays like this next year, he and Watson could be the next big thing.

    —- not a packers fan

  16. As a Packers fan, 2 good things happened tonight. One, Joe Barry must go, and two, Jordan Love showed me in unexpected playing time he is ready to take over. I’m not saying he’s the third HOFer in a row for GB, but I’m ready to be rid of Rodgers and just see what happens. The team seemed to rally around Love and I for one am ready for the next chapter of the 13-time world champions (cue the thumbs downs!)

  17. That the game was anywhere close when Jalen Hurts was doing his best impression of 2012 playoff Colin Kaepernick speaks to the Eagles’ flaws. But as a Packers fan, I’m actually feeling more optimistic coming out of this game than I was going in, for two reasons:

    First, Love looked good for maybe the first time ever. It might be premature to compare this to Rodgers coming off the bench in Dallas back in Favre’s last year, but there’s a chance that he might actually be good, and the Packers are going to get a good look at him the rest of the season. They’ll definitely see enough from him to make an informed decision on whether or not to pick up his fifth-year option.

    Secondly, the Wisconsin Badgers passed over interim head coach Jim Leonhard and hired Luke Fickell to run their football team. Leonhard was the Packers’ initial choice for DC when they made the disastrous Joe Barry hire, but he turned the Packers down to stay at UW, presumably to eventually take over as the head coach there.

    Now that that venue is closed to him, both sides have the opportunity for a much-needed do-over, which can only help the Packers defense moving forward.

  18. The 350 yds. were as much about poor tackling as blocking. I spent the whole night watching Packers dive at “air”. I don’t see why defenders don’t try to hem-in the good runners until help arrives.

  19. Why would any team ever pass again against green bay? Just run every play against that soft defense

  20. Haters in here already trying to spin this. Keep hating…. the Eagles keep winning…. all the way to LVII.

    Go Birds!

  21. Eagles defense wasn’t exposed. They been keeping scores down all year long. You guys see one bad “points allowed” performance and think something has been exposed lol. They getting big Jordan Davis back next week. They will be fine. Special teams on the other hand good grief

  22. Let’s not forget that if a team game plans for Jordan Love, he’s not nearly as effective. It’s easy to have a little success when it’s late in a game and a team hasn’t prepared for you. Man, GB is really as bad as we all thought they were. 500 yards of offense given up, 300 of those yards on the ground, faking injuries every time the eagles were in hurry up offense so you can slow their momentum down and keep your timeouts. Wish the bears would have won so GB could take their rightful spot in the basement of the division.

  23. Did the Packers keep the receipt on that contract they gave Aaron Rodgers? What a waste!

  24. The GM needs to also take a lot of the heat for the defense. GB has drafted defense in the first round forever and they still have very little talent. Their DL is small and slow and Kenny Clark is way over rated for a NT, easily get pushed off the ball by centers who are supposed to be smaller.. I’m not sure about their weight but I would argue they have the smallest DL in the league. Not sure if it is teaching or just that some guys have it and some don’t, but our defense can’t tackle to save their lives. I wish a journalist would have the courage to ask Gutey if he shares any of the responsibility of how terrible this defense is.

  25. As an Eagles fan I have to be a little cynical after the win. As dominant as their offense was, wow…that defense and special teams was horrendous! I just don’t get all the Jonathan Gannon love around the league. That defense, even with the injuries, has more than enough talent to play better than that. Even when they get Jordan Davis, Avonte Maddox & Gardner-Johnson back from inuries, they’re gonna have problems stopping teams playing that way. Also…some of the worst tackling I’ve ever seen from both teams! I watched Haason Reddick literally give a RB 6 extra yards by turning his head and bumping him forward with his shoulder rather than tackling the way we were taught as kids in Pop Warner ball!

  26. It will be very interesting to see what the Packers do the rest of the season. Rodgers will probably be put on IR and Love will finish out the season. If Love progresses/looks decent, don’t be surprised in the offseason if the Packers sit down with Rodgers, asks which AFC team that needs a qb with lots of salary cap $$ he’s like to be traded to. If Love doesn’t look good it’s Rodgers again.

    The iggles defense as exposed tonight. I see the 49ers representing the NFC.

    —————————————————————————————————————
    Funny, I’ve read this same comment the last 4 weeks and they’re still 10-1. Yes they need to tighten up their defense and special teams, Jordan Davis coming back should help.

  28. Its unfortunate that the Rodgers hoopla is going to be the major storyline here.

    That was one of the most embarrassing defensive performances I have ever seen.

  29. The mainstream sports media is obsessed with quarterbacks so the focus on the Packers offense is always front and center. But the reality is the Packers defense has been the real problem this year.
    To be fair, a budding star in Rashan Gary, an All-Pro in De’Vondre Campbell and starting corner Eric Stokes are out, but the scheme has been lanced week in and week out. The offense scored 33 points against the second best defense in the league. Maybe allowing 40 is the problem?

  30. The Eagles didn’t punt all game. But let’s blame Rodgers for the L because you haters know nothing about football.

    Are you sure about that? Check the standings in the NFC North.

  32. The defensive coordinator(Joe Berry) after this season has no legitimate reason to return to Green Bay.his scheme is attrocious and has been all season,even his players complain but he simple wont change his ways.nobody can blame the losses the last six weeks just on Rodgers broken hand and the fact he played awful with it,the defense is a sieve.big changes for the better happening in Packerland before next season gets off the ground.exciting times with a high first round draft pick in the bag and a new defensive boss changing a very bad defense.

    Like they did the Saints yesterday?

  34. No matter who starts, the Packers owes Rodgers 109M for 2023 and 2024.
    ==========

    If Rodgers retires after this season his remaining guarantees total $40.3mil. That would be split over the 2023 and 2024 cap.

    If he plays in 2023, he counts $31.8~mil against the cap (10th among QBs) $40.7~mil if he plays in 2024 (8th among QBs)

  35. The GM needs to also take a lot of the heat for the defense. GB has drafted defense in the first round forever and they still have very little talent. Their DL is small and slow and Kenny Clark is way over rated for a NT, easily get pushed off the ball by centers who are supposed to be smaller..
    ==========

    Clark, Gary and Alexander would start for any team. Campbell was an All-Pro last year.

    Clark is not having a very good year. The line as a whole has been terrible, and it was on full display again last night. I think Clark is just caught in the mess personally, but time will tell.

    7 1st rounders on this D. Significant FA signings (Campbell, Amos, Preston Smith, Douglas, Reed).. I can’t say anything other than better coaches could have success with those players.

  36. What the heck has happened to Kenny Clark? Kelce manhandled him like a 160 pound weakling all night.

  37. Aaron Fraudgers is still better than your QB says:

    Nope

    The majority of that is an option that is not guaranteed.

  39. What the heck has happened to Kenny Clark? Kelce manhandled him like a 160 pound weakling all night.
    ==========

    They played half the night with that stupid 2-man line.

    Of course Clark was going to be swallowed whole.

  41. The Packers are a horrible football team. Not getting better anytime soon either with Rodgers’ stranglehold on the team’s payroll.

    Hmmm…the Niners beat exactly two teams with a winning record, the 6-5 Seahawks and the 6-5 Chargers. Those are their signature wins so far this year. The only “good” team they played was the Chiefs and they got boat raced 44-23. I’ll be looking forward to your posting next week after Miami reminds you what a good offense can do to a bottom-feeding defense. FLY!

  43. As I often commented before, every time the two biggest babies in the NFL
    lose on Sunday, Monday is just spectacular.

  44. If the packers don’t shore up their run defense, there’s a real chance they’ll end the season in the cellar of the NFCN. Justin Fields may not be a great QB, but he’ll shred the packers D with his legs. Could be a blue Christmas in Wisconsin this year.

  45. Hurts, Eagle fans pray he doesn’t tweak an ankle or knee with all that running, or a concussion happens. As for Love, he threw just fine when he went to his first read, he does have a strong arm. Once the first read was gone he broke the pocket and threw with inaccuracy. He proved nothing last night. Don’t be shocked if Rodgers sticks it to the organization by retiring after the season, thus the Pack not being the beneficiary of any added draft picks.

  46. After Love almost won game, Arod seen speaking with Statefarm about transferring his home insurance to AFC next year.

  47. The team to come out of the NFC this season will not be the Vikings, Eagles, Cowboys, or Giants. It’s going to be a mediocre team like the Bucs or 49ers down the stretch. All bets are on the first three teams listed here, so there’s your clue.

  48. 363!!! Holy crap is that a record?? The Packers are a really bad team. A-Fraud is cooked almost as bad as Russ.

    Two bad teams …………………………
    Soon , very soon , your team’s gonna get spanked twice !

  50. “Don’t be shocked if Rodgers sticks it to the organization by retiring after the season, thus the Pack not being the beneficiary of any added draft picks.”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    If Rodgers retires, the Packers don’t have to pay him all that otherwise-guaranteed money. He’d do us all a huge favor to retire gracefully.

    And then all these fine folks can go ahead and get started on their next 15 years of crying about how the Packers “just lucked right into another one!”

  51. You still gave up 33 points to an injured QB or one who has barely touched the field as a starter. That Philthy team is a mirage. Once their starting running back is injured, they’ll lose everything.

  52. Don’t be shocked if Rodgers sticks it to the organization by retiring after the season, thus the Pack not being the beneficiary of any added draft picks.
    ==========

    Rodgers has a no-trade clause in his contract. Which the Packers agreed to.

    So I guess the Packers stuck it to themselves.

  53. Rogers is washed up and demotivated, which is hardly surprising, Packers can’t afford a defence due to Rogers obscene salary 😡
    I think fans that think Rogers will retire at the end of this season are deluding themselves, no one walks away from $60 million per season and no other team would be stupid enough to pay him even half of that…..Packers are in for a couple of tough seasons and it’s no good blaming Matt Leflour, it’s the GM that’s an idiot, should have got rid of Rogers not paid him $60 mill a season!

  54. Two bad teams …………………………
    ==========

    If you can dominate the line of scrimmage the way the Eagles did last night, you’re going to win alot of games.

  55. GB scored 33. That’s usually enough for a good solid win. Packer Defense was horrid as it has been the last several years. You can’t put all the blame on Rogers on this loss and most of the losses this season.

  56. D allowed 250 total yards I don’t know what game you’re watching saying the defense was horrendous that’s a good day for any Defense

  57. Aaron Fraudgers is still better than your QB says:

    The ignorance regarding Rodgers contract is astounding.
    —————–
    Apparently someone is wrong. You…. or all of the sporting news sites. Maybe you should write to them and let them know how wrong they are about Rodgers $150M guaranteed contract and the 99M deadcap hit. Let them know that Aarond Fraudgers said that Aaron Rodgers can leave after this season with just a 40M cap hit.

  58. Aaron Fraudgers is still better than your QB says:

    The ignorance regarding Rodgers contract is astounding.

    Rodgers has a no-trade clause in his contract. Which the Packers agreed to.
    ###

    Yes it is. And you are part of that problem…

    Contract Notes
    Aaron Rodgers signed a three year, $150 million contract with the Packers on March 14, 2022. Rodgers received $101.4 million in full guarantees and $150.66 million in injury guarantees. Rodgers received a $40.8 million signing bonus as part of the contract.

    As to his no trade clause – Packers management did “agree” to it, but Aaron was holding a gun to their heads…

    Why would any team ever pass again against green bay? Just run every play against that soft defense

    xxxxxxxx

    Speaking of soft, the Vikings were held to one score against the eagles and cowboys.

  60. Leave it to the packers defense to allow another qb to set a rushing record against them. GB could clone the 85 bears defense and they would still be the worst defense in the league.

    Coltluger,
    “I’ll take retirement for 200M”

    Answer: “This happens to professional athletes in their late thirties when they extend their careers just a bit too long.”

    “What is lose?”

    “Correct!”

  62. Eagles Running Game. Or Jalen Hurts running. Or Jalen Hurts throwing.

    Had the Packers Defense stopped any one of those three.. and still lost, I would have been disappointed. But I could have accepted it.

    But what really requires the preparation H is they didn’t stop any of them.

  63. Watch. Dr. 3-19 will not be on the injury report as useless as that is. Yo Mr. Immunized your frickin thumb isn’t broken or it would be in a frickin cast. I am so sick of this creep, please just go to Peru or wherever and stay hi on ayhu wacha.
