Eagles pick off Rodgers’ late pass, hand Packers first loss of season


Evan Siegle

Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham collected the interception after Rodgers' pass bounced off Marquez Valdes-Scantling and cornerback Craig James during a slant route with 25 seconds remaining at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisc.

Aaron Rodgers ranks a lukewarm 16th in the National Football League in QBR and hasn't thrown for over 240 yards in a game yet this season.

Carson Wentz threw three touchdown passes and Jordan Howard ran for 87 yards and two touchdowns as the Eagles avoided a 1-3 start.

Check out the audio below full as Colin makes his pick for the game and tells you why both teams may soon be going through a transition phase with their quarterbacks. The Packers put up a season high 491 yards of total offense, and the 27 points they scored tied for the most points they have registered in a single game in 2019.

Rodgers and Adams connected on a 58-yard completion on the opening drive. The two-time MVP found Geronimo Allison for a 31-yard gain, and the pair linked up for a 19-yard touchdown to make it 21-20 at the half. The Eagles rushed for a total of 176 yards and two touchdowns against the Packers, which ended up being the deciding factor.

Running back Jamaal Williams caught a pass from Rodgers for no gain and was leveled by defensive Derek Barnett on Green Bay's first play from scrimmage.

Wentz found tight end Dallas Goedert for a 3-yard touchdown strike.

The Eagles had an 8-play, 76-yard scoring drive on their first drive of the second half. The Eagles capitalized with 1-yard score by Howard.

We got a couple of big shocks - including a 95-point thriller in Los Angeles - and a couple of near misses, like a last ditch rally from the Chiefs in Detroit. After a failed two-point conversion, Philadelphia led 27-20. Adams was not available for Rodgers on the game-defining possession.

The Packers came out hot again with their third opening-drive touchdown in as many games. Eli Manning sits in eighth place with 362. CB Tony Brown suffered a hamstring injury and did not return. Adams suffered an injured toe.
