What Aaron Rodgers said after the Green Bay Packers win at New Orleans
The New Orleans Saints fell to 1-2 on the year after a a 37-30 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday night in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Seven of the Packers’ drives resulted in points while quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 21 of his 32 passes for 283 yards and three touchdowns in the matchup.
Here’s what Rodgers said about the Green Bay win:
On thriving under pressure: "Any time you are playing a Drew Brees team, then you know that you have to score. The two times that we've played down here I have felt like they put up 50 both times I know one time they put up 51. We knew the type of game (to expect). Right now on offense we feel really good about it. Matt (LaFleur) had a really nice flow with the calls. He did a nice job on third down for the most part. We were opportunistic with some big plays when we needed it. We got some guys involved. We had a number of guys catch passes and a number of guys we needed to play well played well."
On the defensive coverages: "They were definitely worried about (Marquez Valdes-Scantling's) speed over the top. He was definitely getting some help on his side, which freed up some of the other guys. This was a night where we worked it down the field. We had a lot of keepers as well. Tonight the keeper game was working. It was a very efficient play for us."
On drawing Demario Davis offsides to set up a touchdown run: "I was definitely watching the play clock there. There were a couple of times earlier where they were really cued into the play clock. At that time, I felt OK about the call, but I wanted to talk to Matt (LaFleur) about it. I was thinking about calling timeout, but they jumped. We protected up pretty good. I threw one up to Allen (Lazard) and he did a nice job of fighting for it. Obviously we had the PI there that set us up nice on the one-yard line."
