Some Packer fans took a loss on Monday Night

Tough break last night for the Jets and these Packer fans...

NFL: Buffalo Bills at New York Jets Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

I’m not here to celebrate a player’s injury, but when I saw this come across my timeline, I had to share it for all the non-social-media using Chicago Bears fans.

Several Packer fans were at Jack’s American Pub in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, rooting for former Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers to lose in his New York Jets debut because a Jets’ L would equal free drinks that night.

When Rodgers went down with an Achilles injury, the pub’s patrons figured there would be no way Zach Wilson could lead Gang Green to a win over the Buffalo Bills, so they ordered more and more and more alcohol.


As we all know, the Jets forced overtime, and then rookie receiver Xavier Gipson returned a punt 65 yards for the game-winning touchdown.

The Packers’ franchise lost a little with Rodgers’ injury as well because had he played 65% of the 2023 snaps in N.Y., they would have received a conditional first-round pick in 2024, but now they’ll have to settle for a second-rounder.
