Ty Montgomery Fumble is a Crushing Blow for the Packers (Duh)

Greg Zuerlein hit a 34-yard field goal with 2:05 left before Wilson forced and recovered Montgomery's fumble on the ensuing kickoff, and Gurley's prudent decision to go down wrapped up the Rams' 29-27 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

Ty Montgomery didn't talk after he fumbled away a chance for Aaron Rodgers to win Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams, but he had plenty to say on Monday. "We got the win, so that's all that matters".

Packers coach Mike McCarthy confirmed after the game that coaches had instructed Montgomery to take a knee if that was an option.

Montgomery responded to those quotes and addressed the idea that he was supposed to take a knee on the kickoff rather than returning it. Unfortunately I ended up fumbling the football and I don't think we would be having this conversation if I didn't fumble the football because we know how good our two-minute offense is, but I've never been a guy that completely disobeys what I'm being told. "This team has demonstrated through eight games that while we have a long way to go, this team is capable of winning games in a bunch of different ways".

Paul Pogba’s stutter-run made my job easier, says Jordan Pickford
Martial's deal expires next summer but the club have an option to extend his contract by a further year. Yes, Bolt runs the 100m faster than Pogba does to reach the ball while taking a penalty.

Montgomery denied that he threw a "tantrum" on the sideline after getting pulled from the previous series and said his frustration over his lack of playing time had nothing to do with the kick return decision. That was him saying, "I'm gonna do me.' It's a f-- joke".

Montgomery expressed dismay at the questioning of his character and team commitment. "I saw when he kind of slowed down, he knew what he was doing". "I think we all realize with the management of the clock and where we wanted to be there, we wanted to be north of the two minutes with one timeout". It was basically a replay of the San Francisco game all over again.

The Packers must put the loss behind them as they get ready for the New England Patriots Sunday night, November 4 in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Everybody, trust me, when everybody walks off the field, there's always plays you're thinking about, whether you've played, or coached, or called plays, whether you're in charge of the scout team, as far as did you give them the best look.

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