Green Bay Packers Drop A Game To The Buffalo Bills

Green Bay will mark this one down as just one of those games, but the Bills were celebrating in Orchard Park taking down Aaron Rodgers and the Packers 21-13.

If you have a good defense, you have a good chance. Of course it helps when the opposing team drops 8 passes, one of which was a sure touchdown to realiable pass-catcher Jordy Nelson.

However despite the drops, the Bills played a great game of football to mask their quartebacks limitations. Orton went just 14/27 for no touchdowns and an interception, while going 4/16 on third down. Fortunately for the Bills, their special teams came to play.

Marcus Thigpen returned a punt 75 yards for a score and kicker Dan Carpenter was perfect on the day with 4 field goals. Mario Williams came up with a vital strip of Rodgers who was in the 2 minute drill, leading to a safety and the end of the game.

Aaron Rodgers had thrown 3 interceptions in 13 games before his trip to Western New York, but the Green Bay signal caller threw two interceptions in one game. Admittedly he was largely unlucky with the interceptions as his receiving core didn't seem all that interested in catching any passes.

Buffalo now sit at 8-6 and still have an outside shot of making the post-season. If you're a Buffalo fan you have to be pleased with what you saw and if they can grab a Quarterback they could be a very good team with the defense they have. It'll be interesting to see how they approach the off-season and how they approach E.J Manuel as well.
