Christian Watson must have felt the worst after the Packers' rookie wide receiver lost a potential 75-yard touchdown ball on the team's opening offensive play in Sunday's 23-7 defeat to the Minnesota Vikings.

Allen Lazard, Green Bay's top receiver, tried his best to cheer up Watson after the tragic play.

Watson was forced to the sidelines after getting hurt during training camp after a defensive lineman stepped on him.

The Packers' passing offence struggled against the Vikings without Lazard.

Rodgers completed 22 of 34 throws for 195 yards, one interception, no touchdowns.

No receiver gained more than 37 yards in receiving yards, so Rodgers had to target his running backs more than normal.

Sammy Watkins and Randall Cobb both had reception averages of six and seven yards.

Watson, Robert Tonyan, and Aaron Jones only managed to catch one of their fifteen targets between them.

Rodgers' 67.7 passer rating was the lowest it had been since the opening game of the 2021 season against the New Orleans Saints, and his 16.1 QBR was the lowest it had been since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers game on October 18, 2020.
