Aaron Rodgers did not have a good time during the Green Bay Packers Week 1 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Not only did he have one of the worst performances of his career, but he also took not one, but two shots below the waist during the loss.
Rodgers threw for just 133 yards and didn’t score a touchdown in Green Bay’s 38-3 loss. He also threw two interceptions, but according to him, the first pick wasn’t necessarily due to him making a bad throw.
Let’s just say he was distracted by the pain that all men fear.
“For those of you who went back and watched it…I don’t like to make a lot of excuses for interceptions… That one was entirely due to the double nut shot I took,” Rodgers explained.
“I stepped up in the pocket, was going to throw the ball to Davante, it was a shallow cross that I’ve thrown in practice before, I didn’t feel bad about that throw. Right before I threw it, I took a clothesline and then somebody on the right, with a right cross, double nut shot.”
"There's some interceptions you want back.. some that aren't your fault.. but the first one on Sunday was entirely due to the DOUBLE nut shot I took" 😂😂 @AaronRodgers12#PatMcAfeeShowLIVE pic.twitter.com/Itef4xBPTe
