It doesn’t look good for Aaron Rodgers’ tape. With a record of 4-7, they will have to multiply the miracles over the next few weeks to seize one of the three places available for the teams drafted in the National.

In the duel of the day, they were able to limit star running back Derrick Henry to just 87 yards on the ground…but he still scored a major and even managed a touchdown pass! In the third quarter, a trick play allowed him to spot Austin Hopper in the end zone.

Hopper also received one of two touchdown passes from Ryan Tannehill in the game, which also allowed Dontrell Hilliard to add six points to the table. The Titans (7-3) quarterback had 333 yards through the air but was larcened.

Meanwhile, Rodgers was limited to 227 yards. He still combined his efforts with those of Christian Watson to score two touchdowns. The Packers’ offense, however, was anemic at the worst time of the game: in the fourth quarter.
