The Green Bay Packers aren’t playing the best of football right now. After four weeks of NFL action, they do sit at 3-1 on the season. But quarterback Aaron Rodgers says that it’s not ‘sustainable,’ with their latest ‘W’ being a nail-biting 27-24 overtime win on Sunday over the New England Patriots at home. Having trailed four separate times in the game, Rodgers and Aaron Jones led their team back time and time again. Rodgers finished with two touchdowns and 251 yards on 21-35 while Jones rushed for 110 yards on 16 carries. Mason Crosby’s field goal as time expired in OT was the difference maker, sending the Pats to 1-3.
Elsewhere, the Baltimore Ravens lost a showdown of two of the league’s best QB’s as Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills saw off Lamar Jackson and co. 23-20 on the road. Jackson was picked off, in the end zone, with 4:09 left on the clock, allowing Allen to engineer a long drive that culminated in a field goal as time expired. On a rainy day in Baltimore, neither team QB was at their all-time best, but it was Allen that prevailed with just shy of 300 total yards of offense. In prime time, the Kansas City Chiefs won in Tampa, taking down the Buccaneers 41-31 behind Patrick Mahomes’ three-TD afternoon and Travis Kelce’s nine-catch, 92-yard performance. In London, in the early contest, the Minnesota Vikings held on to win 28-25 after the New Orleans Saints’ Will Lutz hit the uprights twice with a field goal as time expired. The Vikings are now 3-1 on the year after the very close call.
