Gurley: 'Forget fantasy,' we got the win

JL7_2405

If you watched Sunday's game between the Packers and Rams and yelled, "Why didn't you just take a knee?" when Green Bay's Ty Montgomery fumbled the ball on a kickoff return with less than two minutes left in the game, you have something in common with the basically the entire Packers team. Instead of scoring, he smartly got down, allowing the Rams to kneel out the clock.

But fantasy owners, as well as people who had some money on the game (the Rams were giving 7 to 7.5 to the Packers and could have covered with the TD), were hoping for a different outcome. "If you want to know if it was emotional in the locker room, you're damn right it was, and it should have been and I want it to be because it's a reflection of how much these guys care, it's a reflection of how much they want to win and clearly directly effects that we had intentions to go out there and beat that team", said McCarthy.

The Rams iced the game away and it takes away what would have been a huge momentum boost for the Packers' season and greatly diminishes their margin for error the rest of the way.

Rodgers threw for 286 yards, but he didn't get a snap in the final 5:20.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said the return man was supposed to take a touchback.

Officials said that within five minutes of the 911 call being made, a teacher said that she was with the suspect in her classroom. The school had been placed in lockdown, but that was later lifted as students streamed out, many crying and hugging parents.

A DNA sample from a device intended for Obama similarly matched the suspect's DNA, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said. Sayoc was no stranger to law enforcement, racking up several arrests for larceny, fraud and drug possession.

"And then to have it end the way it did", Rodgers said. "We can play with anybody, but we already knew that before this game".

Both teams had loud contingents of fans at the Coliseum, where Green Bay won the first Super Bowl in 1967.

The Packers do have other options at running back. Gurley leads the NFL with 15 touchdowns, and he became the fourth player in league history to score at least 15 touchdowns in the first eight games of a season, joining Jim Brown (17 in 1958) and Priest Holmes (15 in 2002 and 2004).

It bears watching what Green Bay will do with Montgomery, if anything; if multiple players know he deliberately disobeyed coaches, can you just put him back on the field?

Rams: WR Cooper Kupp missed his second straight game with a knee injury, opening the chance for Reynolds to shine.
