Packers’ Aaron Rodgers expresses his frustration on sideline as quarterback has rough start to game


Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers started off shaky at the start of their Week 9 game against the Detroit Lions, and the star quarterback was not happy.

Rodgers had the Packers down in the red zone on their first drive of the game. But the 13-play, 88-yard series ended with a tipped pass intercepted by Lions safety Kerby Joseph. Rodgers was then seen on the sideline expressing his frustrations outwardly.

On the next drive, Rodgers connected with wide receiver Allen Lazard for a 47-yard gain that ended on the 1-yard line. However, the Packers failed to get into the end zone on the next three plays and the first quarter would end.

Rodgers was off to a hot start: 6-for-11 passing with 102 yards through the first 15 minutes.

Green Bay entered the game 3-5 on the season and looking to snap a four-game losing streak. Injuries have plagued the team for the entire season. Romeo Doubs was seen leaving the game with an ankle injury earlier in the first quarter.
