A poor official didn’t see the Jaguars coming on this long Packers touchdown

Aaron Rodgers 1, wind 0. Multiple games around the league are being impacted by high winds, but Rodgers has such a cannon that it didn’t matter. On the first play of the second quarter, Rodgers made up for a lackluster first frame, chucking a deep ball to Marquez Valdes-Scantling. MVS did the rest, and got an unintentional moving screen from the back judge in the process.

Matt LaFleur’s cautious approach due to the weather should be thrown in the proverbial garbage can after Rodgers and MVS connected on the most explosive play of Week 10 thus far.

A ref got blindsided for no fault of his own

I’m not quite sure why the official is running across the secondary from one hashmark to the other, but there’s no way he could’ve known MVS’s intention to cross the field of play. As the Jaguars’ safety tried to make a play, the two ran into each other, giving Valdes-Scantling a walk-in touchdown.

The Packers are locked in a surprisingly tight contest with Jacksonville in the first half, but the emergence of MVS as a legitimate No. 2 weapon next to Davante Adams has been an underrated storyline for Green Bay so far this season. Should that continue, their offense will get even more dangerous.

Next. Aaron Rodgers Packers stats are eerily similar to Brett Favre’s. dark
