- The return of Rodgers did little for Jordy Nelson, who finished with three catches for 28 yards. With the exception of his first touchdown pass, Rodgers made no throws that were distinctly him. Bush caught 88 passes for 742 yards and two touchdowns for the Saints in 2006.
Rodgers was clearly rusty in his return, off for much of the game with his accuracy and comfort in the pocket.
Obviously, that would have been a lot less impressive if he didn't back it up with a touchdown, but the Packers did get the last laugh, as they lead 14-10 at halftime. Newton picked apart the Packers, going 20 of 31 for 242 yards with four touchdowns and zero turnovers.
Nazareth Christmas celebrations will probably be held as regular…
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lauded the recognition as a "historic day" that is an "important step toward peace". He described his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the seat of Israel's government as merely based on reality.
Following Jones' interception, Newton fired an end zone shot to receiver Damiere Byrd that was at first ruled incomplete.
"#LeftCheekDown" began trending on Twitter following the ruling. Rodgers threw three uncharacteristic interceptions and Allison's lost fumble ended the game. For Carolina, a win moves them closer to its first playoff appearance since 2015-16. Two of Rodgers' three picks were underthrown balls due to getting forced backward and making a back-foot throw. He was kept clean on 77 percent of his dropbacks, and had an adjusted completion percentage of 76.0 along with three touchdowns on those plays. The two are tied for the team's lead in sacks with 10, and Peppers became the fourth player in National Football League history with at least 10 seasons with 10 or more sacks. The Panthers extended the lead to 31-17 in the fourth quarter, until Rodgers connected with Richard Rodgers with 2:43 left to pull the Packers within seven at 31-24. An onside kick bounced through McCaffrey's arms as he tried to fall on it, and the Packers recovered. Panthers safety Mike Adams then fell on the ball to secure the victory.
