The Green Bay Packers led the Philadelphia Eagles 14-3 and were moving down the field to start the third quarter. The momentum was all on their side. Then Aaron Rodgers fumbled. On a third-and-two, Rodgers was pressured and tried to scramble but the ball was knocked loose and the Eagles recovered. Two plays later, Michael Vick Jason Avant for a 24-yard touchdown pass to bring the Eagles back to within four and bring the crowd back into the game.
The Packers have now turned the ball over twice and find themselves going from looking for a knockout punch to simply wanting to hang onto the lead. The Packers lead the Eagles in total yards, 185 to 149 and Avant leads all receivers with four catches for 55 yards.
We all thought this would be a close game and it hasn’t disappointed yet.
