“How can you not? We’re all human here,” said Rodgers. “That was obviously a difficult moment for us. We’re hoping that we’ve put yourself in a position right now where that’s not going to have an effect on things. We’re not going to use that as an excuse. We have four games left and everything is right in front of us, with a chance to win out, and not only be division champions [but] also a potential first-round bye. But in some of those quiet moments, of course, you can’t help but think about it.”
The good news is that the Packers have been able to overcome that debacle and are now in first place in the NFC North.
