Quarterback Aaron Rodgers wants more ‘juice’ playing Carolina Panthers after Green Bay Packers’ dry run at Los Angeles Chargers
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers couldn’t quite put his finger on it, but the two-time MVP knew something was missing last Sunday.
Rodgers was sacked three times, and the Green Bay Packers’ offense had its most anemic performance under coach Matt LaFleur in a 26-11 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.
“It was such a different feeling,” said Rodgers, who was held to a career-low 61 yards through the first three quarters. “We just didn’t have that normal juice. … I’m not calling anybody specifically out, I’m just saying there was obviously something that threw us off a little bit energetically.”
Green Bay (7-2) will look to bounce back Sunday when it hosts the Carolina Panthers (5-3), a team the Packers have scored 30-plus points against in five of the six games they’ve played at Lambeau Field.
Rodgers will have his top target, Davante Adams, for the second straight game. The two-time Pro Bowl receiver continues to work his way back to full strength after missing four games with turf toe.
