There’s not much going wrong for the Green Bay Packers today as they’re currently obliterating the Washington Redskins.

That trend is likely to continue through the second half, but not everything has went their way – it just seems like it.

As the Packers were threatening for yet another score (which they’ve done about 95% of the game), wide receiver James Jones tried to reach out and get the ball over the goal line, resulting in another touchdown for the Pack.

It wasn’t to be though as a Redskins defender emerged at the final moment, drilling the outstretched arm of Jones who lost his grip on the ball.

Unfortunately for Jones and the Packers, had the ball bounced anywhere else, it likely would have hit the sideline and been a fumble out of bounds with the Packers retaining possession on the one yard line. That’s not what happened though as the ball hit the pylon, by rule making it a touchback.

/insert sad sound effect

Pretty sure the Packers, who are currently up 24-0 at halftime, can deal with the blow.
