The Secret Service has been a concern for the Green Bay Packers in 2021, and they ended up suffering in big games.
In a playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers, the Green Bay Packers were ready to punt with less than five minutes left, but long drive Steven Wirtel couldn’t block Jordan Willis, who blocked a block. Corey Bojorquez’s punt. The ball was eventually picked up by safety Talanoa Hufanga at the front 1-yard line of the Green Bay Packers end zone and rushed into the end zone for a touchdown to tie the game.
Green Bay Packers coach Matt Lafleur said after the game: “It was a turning point in the game, but I don’t think it was just the ball. I don’t know what happened, and I’ll have to look at the video later. It was blocked twice, which was a big reason for the loss.”
The Green Bay Packers defense ultimately failed to prevent the opponent from entering free-kick range, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers, known for his Virgin Mary long pass, had no use, and could only watch Robbie Gould hit a 45-yard field goal from the bench. Kill the game.
“This is unacceptable,” Matt Lafleur said. “The responsibility is on me.”
