Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers would probably like to have that third down decision back…
The Packers trailed the Buccaneers, 31-23, with less than three minutes to play in the fourth quarter. On third down, Rodgers scrambled toward the line of scrimmage and ended up passing the ball into the end zone. However, the pass was batted down.
Green Bay opted to kick a field goal, cutting the Buccaneers’ lead to 31-26 with just more than two minutes remaining (a questionable decision, as well).
However, it appears that Rodgers could have ran the ball in for a touchdown. Social media is convinced that Rodgers could have rushed the ball own his own into the end zone for a score.
The All-Pro quarterback would probably like to have this one back.
I don’t know why Rodgers didn’t run that in.
I get why they kicked the FG given how the Packers have made Brady look silly this half.
But those 2 sequences, I dunno man.

Why didn't Rodgers run it? He had a TD.

It’s possible that Rodgers wouldn’t have made it all the way in, but it sure looked like he had an open running lane.
The Green Bay Packers trail the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 31-26, with just under two minutes to play in the fourth quarter.
