Facing a 3rd-and-11 situation at the Tennessee 21-yard line in the third quarter, Rodgers and the Packers offense wanted to catch the defense off guard by running a quick play. But the officials had to stop play so that an injured Tart could be looked at.
Needless to say, Green Bay’s superstar quarterback didn’t look like he was buying the Tart’s injury. No. 12 was visibly frustrated with the stoppage, as you can see in the video.
On the 3rd-and-11 play, Rodgers’ pass attempt fell incomplete. Green Bay had to settle on a Mason Crosby field goal, and the Tennessee defense held the Packers to just eight more points the rest of the way.
On the final play of the first quarter, the Packers ran a quick play and drew a defensive penalty against Tennessee, but it didn’t matter since Rodgers found Christian Watson in the end zone for a 14-yard touchdown.
Tart had one tackle in the Titans’ 27-17 victory. With the win, Mike Vrabel’s group got themselves one step closer to clinching the AFC South division. They’re sitting comfortably at the top with a 7-3 record, and the second-placed Indianapolis Colts are a distant second at 4-5-1.
Tennessee’s win was also likely the dagger in Green Bay’s 2022 postseason hopes. Thursday’s defeat marked Green Bay’s sixth lost in their last seven outings, and at 4-7, it’s going to take a miracle for them to qualify.
Green Bay will try to keep their playoff hopes alive when they visit the top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles next Sunday. As for the Titans, they’ll enjoy the extra rest before hosting Joe Burrow’s Cincinnati Bengals in a rematch from last season’s AFC Divisional Round.
