Aaron Rodgers appeared to yell at Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur after throwing an incomplete pass on third down in the closing moments of the fourth quarter against the Dallas Cowboys.
Rodgers tossed the ball away to stop the clock and failed to get a first down to try to break the 28-28 tie late in the fourth quarter. He then could be seen yelling at his head coach. It wasn’t exactly clear what the problem was, but many assumed it could’ve been about the play call.
In the postgame press conference, Aaron Rodgers revealed what was said in that moment. According to Sports Illustrated, Rodgers claims he was frustrated with, “just every single play call probably. Felt like we were 30 yards from winning the game in regulation.”
Matt LaFleur spoke on the situation as well, saying, “Indecision. A lot of times when we get in those situations, we give Aaron a lot of freedom to run the show. Today, he does a great job with it. So hindsight is 20–20. That’s on me.”
Things looked very bleak for the Packers as they found themselves down two scores in the second half. Rodgers led the Packers on a comeback to tie the game in the fourth quarter. He found Christian Watson twice in the fourth quarter to tie the game. Rodgers had three touchdown passes in regulation, all of which went to Watson.
Green Bay broke their losing streak of five in a row. Dallas was coming off a bye week and in contention for the NFC East title with the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles. They now sit in their place in the division.
After throwing four interceptions in the last two games, Aaron Rodgers was much better protecting the ball on Sunday.
Rodgers threw for 224 yards and three total on Sunday to improve Green Bay’s record to 4-6. The comeback win was sealed by Mason Crosby, who kicked a 28-yard game-winning field goal during overtime.
Green Bay snapped a five-game losing streak with a thrilling 31-28 overtime win over the Cowboys.
