Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers were at their worst Sunday in a 38-3 loss to the New Orleans Saints in the 2021 NFL season opener.
Rodgers, the reigning league MVP, threw two interceptions and failed to throw a touchdown pass. Earlier this week, Rodgers made an appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show” to talk about the game and one of the steals he threw in the third quarter.

“I don’t like to make a lot of excuses for interceptions,” Rodgers said on the show. “This [first interception] was entirely due to the double nut shot I took. “
He was second and 7th on the Saints 9-yard line when Rodgers came under pressure from Saints defensive linemen Cameron Jordan and Christian Ringo. That’s when Rodgers was hit in the groin just before releasing a pass.

Saints rookie Paulson Adebo intercepted Rodgers and returned the ball 31 yards at the Saints 40-yard line. At the time of the interception, the Packers were leading 17-3 and could have made it a one-point game. The play was the turning point of the eruption.
