I don’t like to make a lot of excuses for interceptions,” Rodgers said on the show. “那 [first interception] was entirely due to the double nut shot I took.

It was second-and-7 from the Saints’ 9-yard line when Rodgers was pressured by Saints defensive linemen Cameron Jordan and Christian Ringo. That’s when Rodgers was hit in his groin area right before releasing a pass.

Saints rookie Paulson Adebo intercepted Rodgers and returned the ball 31 yards to the Saints’ 40-yard line. At the time of the interception, the Packers were trailing 17-3 and could have made it a one-score game. The play was the turning point of the blowout.
