Green Bay Packers at Los Angeles Rams

Green Bay Packers at Los Angeles Rams

A pass-protection breakdown, a bad play against running back Todd Gurley, a poor punt, and the kickoff miscue all occurred in the game's final six minutes and represented the fine line between a potentially significant victory and another Monday of lesson-learning.

With the Packers trailing 29-27 with 205 on the clock, the Rams kicked off to Montgomery in the end zone.

Michael Silver of NFL Media wrote a story after the game that said: "According to more than a half-dozen Packers players and coaches who witnessed it, Montgomery had thrown a tantrum of his own on Green Bay's previous offensive series, becoming noticeably enraged on the sideline after being removed from the game". Yesterday, in the game of the day between the Packers and Rams, that quote was top of mind because of the way things ended for Green Bay.

A report on NFL.com suggested Montgomery had been upset with a limited role on offense in the game and took it upon himself to make something happen.

"I kind of had a feeling [it was a catch] because I got that left leg down", Gurley said, "but I was just hoping that they were going to review it".

It was a long time ago, sure.

Montgomery's intention obviously was not to fumble, but that's precisely why he was told to take a knee. You don't want to have the timeout distribution there at the end, to be at 2:05, I mean, that's exactly what we're looking for.

Montgomery said he was frustrated when he returned to the sidelines on the last drive, but also said that "did not impact his decision the bring the kickoff out of the end zone". "I'm insubordinate. I'm a cancer, whatever is out there", Montgomery said.

Penalties were kept to a minimum (two for 10 yards), and the Packers didn't turn the ball over until Montgomery's fateful fumble. You guys know if you guys ever ask me questions about teammates, I always deflect it. If they want to say it, put their name by it. I think the adversity swings of emotion in a football game are something this team handles very well.

"If Gurley goes in there", a Caesars Palace sportsbook manager said, "we lose a ton of teasers, get middled on the game, and the over crushes us".

Gurley made it clear that he doesn't give a damn about any of that, though.
