The insults got even worse on Monday morning, when NFL.com's Michael Silver reported that at least one Packers player was extremely upset with Montgomery's decision to return the kickoff rather than take a knee inside the end zone. Rodgers would get the ball, go down the field and Mason Crosby would hit the kick to win it. But the "W" was more important. Prior to kickoff, the Rams were favored by 7.5 points and the over/under point total was set at around 57.5.
The Green Bay Packers were in excellent position to hand the Los Angeles Rams their first loss of the season on Sunday, but an inexplicable error by running back Ty Montgomery resulted in them handing the game away.More news: Inside Samsung's bid to challenge Apple with 5G, folding phones
Gurley is leading the league in many categories and certainly another touchdown would've added to his case for a potential MVP award. "Man, forget fantasy and forget Vegas", Gurley said after the game, per ESPN. Before the MVP could get the ball, Montgomery took the ball out of the end zone on the kickoff and fumbled, essentially giving the Rams the win.
There was either miscommunication between Montgomery and his head coach or special teams coordinator Ron Zook and the former pair. It was basically a replay of the San Francisco game all over again. The decision ended the game, as the Packers had no times out left.
"When we talk about ebb and flow, it goes up and down and you have to embrace it", he said. "But when we send it in we say, 'Alright, this is a situation where if we get the first down we're going down, we don't want to score.' But smart players find a way to just make happen when it comes down to it". "We're talking about the reasons why I did what I did, and I am not OK with that.", Montgomery said at his locker. That was him saying, 'I'm gonna do me.' It's a f--ing joke. I think you can ask a lot of guys in the locker room, that's not what I do. I was just hoping he didn't get out of bounds. Gurley had 114 yards rushing and 81 yards receiving, and he scored a touchdown in his franchise record-tying 11th consecutive game on a 30-yard pass in the third quarter.More news: This is the all new iPad Pro 12.9 for 2018
"I don't understand that, honestly, " Clark said. We know what to do in what situation and that's what makes us the team we that we are - unselfish players, situational masters. "That's what it's all about, just having that edge", Gurley said. You know what that was?
