Packers Video: The Agony and the Ecstasy – A.J. Hawk Interference and Packers Goal Line Stop
It was a wild finish to the Packers – Saints game last Thursday night. In a matter of two consecutive plays, the dubious A.J. Hawk interference call and the mass stopping of the Saints on the goal line, fans felt the Agony and the Ecstasy of following their team.
For their part, the Packers continued some themes from last season;
- Keeping opposing teams in games with poor special teams play .
- Inability to secure the win with a time-wasting drive late in games.
- Depending on the defense to come up with a big play at the end to win the game.
As they also did late last season, the Green Bay Packers toyed with the emotions of their fans. Fans went from feeling devastated, as the Saints were handed an opportunity to score and eventually tie the game with zero seconds on the clock, to euphoric, as the Packers stopped the Saints on the goal line. All in a matter of 2 plays.
Here is that amazing two-play sequence. Remember what it felt like at the time and enjoy.
