Aaron Rodgers might be 38-years-old, yet it hasn’t slowed down the fans from expecting any less from him. The reigning MVP has silenced his critics season-after-season. However, the 2022-23 season is not proving to give Rodgers that chance as he miserably failed in the second half of Giants vs Packers in his much-awaited London debut.
For those who missed the live action, Aaron Rodgers finished the game with 25-of-39 for 222 yards and Two TouchDowns. He had no interceptions and even a 96.3 passing rate yet failed to deliver big when his team needed him the most. Resulting in NFL fans calling him out as ‘Aaron Fraudgers’.
While many would blame Aaron Rodgers for three straight incompletions, which punted his team. Daniel Jones’ stellar efforts should be applauded in its truest sense. Having suffered via an ankle injury previously, he completed 21 of 27 for 217 yards and even added 37 yards on the ground, being the catalyst during the 15-play drive helping Giants to level 20-20 against Packers.
NFL Fans react to Aaron Rodgers failing to inspire Packers past Giants in London debut
Aaron Rodgers did not have a quiet game, but perhaps the most clutch moments fell upon him. He brought the Green Bay packers to the 6-yard line with an opportunity to tie the game at 27 apiece, with a minute to play. However, Giants had a different plan as the defense stepped up in a major way and batted two consecutive passes from the reigning MVP. Take a look at how the NFL Fans reacted to it.
That being said, Rodgers finished the game with decent numbers but failed to secure his team’s fourth consecutive win in his London debut. But for the New York Giants, Saquon Barkley (who left the game briefly with a shoulder injury) had 106 yards from scrimmage and that go-ahead TouchDown on a goal-line run at the 6:08 mark in the fourth.
