Montgomery was supposed to take a knee on kick return

Packers’ attacking defense draws its toughest chore yet with deceptive Rams

Packers’ attacking defense draws its toughest chore yet with deceptive Rams

There was either miscommunication between Montgomery and his head coach or special teams coordinator Ron Zook and the former pair. I came off frustrated about it, and I don't know if you guys have ever been so frustrated with something you walk into a room, you close a door, you scream, and then you walk back out and then you deal with your life and you move on.

"You got to play a fully complete game, and we didn't do that, " said receiver Davante Adams, who had five catches for 133 yards.

Montgomery's decision to ignore the coach's instructions could be connected to how he felt about getting taken out of Green Bay's previous series, according to one of the players who spoke to Silver. He had been removed from the game during the prior offensive drive, and unnamed teammates went off on Montgomery in chats with NFL.com's Michael Silver.

"Man, forget fantasy and forget Vegas", Gurley said, via ESPN's David Purdum. "I'm insubordinate. I'm a cancer, whatever is out there", Montgomery said. Following his outburst, he made a decision to ignore his coaches to give himself a shot, and the rest as they say was history.

"We made a mistake". As far as the drama and non-sense about it, I have nothing to say.




Jared Goff passed for 295 yards and three touchdowns while the Rams (8-0) were sternly tested by the Packers (3-3-1).

After the game, he expressed as much.

McCarthy said Alexander's outing was graded an "alpha performance", and the decision to match him on speedy Brandin Cooks said a lot about Alexander's skills. Guys talking about how they can trust me, it's tough for me to trust anyone now.

But on the ensuing kick-off, Ty Montgomery fumbled deep in Packers territory, opening the door for a final score that could make Rams bettors winners, and ruin the day of anyone who had put money on the Packers. On top of surrendering a safety which sparked a Rams comeback in the second quarter, the offense couldn't sustain possessions and consequently, kept an already exhausted defense on the field longer and more frequently than they needed to be. We've got to come out there like that every game. "When the momentum swings the other way, you can't fight it, you have to embrace it". Unfortunately, I ended up fumbling the football. "I think we all realize with the management of the clock and where we wanted to be there, we wanted to be north of the two minutes with one timeout". Instead, he remained on the sideline and watched Rams running back Todd Gurley seal the game with a 17-yard carry on a third-and-10. "We need to be better".
