Despite a few close calls over the first two months of the regular season, the Los Angeles Rams knew Sunday's meeting with the Green Bay Packers had the potential to be their toughest challenge to date, and it was.
The move allowed the Rams to run out the clock in a 29-27 win.
But fantasy owners, as well as people who had some money on the game (the Rams were giving 7 to 7.5 to the Packers and could have covered with the TD), were hoping for a different outcome.
Netflix goes to the "Dogs" in November
Perhaps the episode centered on world-renowned dog groomers will be an emotional reprieve, but who knows really. Netflix has released a trailer for the upcoming docuseries Dogs , but a tearjerker warning is necessary.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was expecting to get just more than two minutes to go downfield with one timeout needing just three points for the win. Yesterday, in the game of the day between the Packers and Rams, that quote was top of mind because of the way things ended for Green Bay.
Montgomery then coughed up his return, and Wilson pounced on the ball.
"That play didn't lose the game, but it took away an opportunity to win", Rodgers said.
Another suspicious package addressed to CNN
The FBI and Atlanta police were called to a post office some 1.2 miles from CNN headquarters around 9:30am. "This package would not have come directly to CNN Center, even if it hadn't been intercepted first".
This matchup has game of the week written all over it.
Rodgers answered with two touchdown drives to grab a one-point lead for Green Bay in the fourth quarter, but Goff countered his fellow Cal product and childhood hero after Aaron Donald sacked Rodgers on third down to stop the Packers' next drive. "We're fans of his smart play". There's no way to overstate what a crushing blow this was for Green Bay's fortunes. The grab also extended Gurley's TD streak to tie the Rams record set by Elroy "Crazylegs" Hirsch in 1950-51.
While some players want the score, Gurley has seen the end zone plenty this season, hitting pay dirt 15 times, the second-most through the first eight games of a season in National Football League history, behind only Jim Brown.

He finished with 10 catches for 108 yards and passed Billy McMullen to become Virginia's all-time leader in receptions. Those four plays and 62 yards in exactly 1:00 gave the Wahoos momentum that the defense seemed to feed off of.
