Rodgers on losing streak: ‘It’s not the kind of football we’re used to’

For the first time since Aaron Rodgers took over as starting quarterback in 2008, the Green Bay Packers have a record below .500 through the first seven games of the season.

After Sunday’s 23-21 loss to the Washington Commanders — a loss that ended with Rodgers face down after his side uplift against offensive lineman Jon Runyan went out of bounds when time expired — the 38-year-old QB was candid about Green Bay’s stance ahead of their upcoming “Sunday Night Football” clash with the Buffalo Bills.

“We’re the underdogs this week, which is a new place for us,” Rodgers said during a recent appearance on The Pat McAfee Show.

After starting the year 3-1, the Packers have lost three straight to the New York Giants, New York Jets and Commanders – all of whom missed the playoffs last season. Green Bay had as many or more penalties and turnovers than their opponents in those three games with nine combined drops by Green Bay pass catchers.

Rodgers’ solution: cut reps and bench the players responsible for those mistakes.
