Early whiff from Packers' OTs



Posted by ESPN.com’s Kevin Seifert


MINNEAPOLIS -- And we’re off. No quarterback had been sacked more in the first three weeks of this season than Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers. And on the 10th play Monday night, with his team approaching the red zone, Rodgers went down for the 13th time this season, losing a fumble in the process.

Same old story: Defensive end Brian Robison beat right tackle Allen Barbre, flushing Rodgers into defensive end Jared Allen, who beat left tackle Daryn Colledge. Allen ripped the ball from Rodgers’ hands as the pile crumpled to the ground.

We’ve all wondered how the Packers’ tackles would fare against Minnesota’s active defensive ends. So far, they’ve already allowed one big play to occur.
