Packers guard T.J. Lang shows his frustration while being carted off the field in the first quarter against the New Orleans Saints.

Right guard T.J. Lang left Sunday night's game in New Orleans with an ankle injury after the Packers' first possession.

Lane Taylor replaced Lang, and he struggled.

Most notably, Taylor got beat off the line of scrimmage on a fourth-and-1 in the third quarter, preventing Lacy from converting the first down.


Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers' streak without an interception ended in the third quarter when his pass inside the 10-yard line bounced off tight end Andrew Quarless' hands. Rodgers had gone 6 1/2 games without an interception.

Both of Rodgers' interceptions this season have been drops, the first coming in the season opener when receiver Jordy Nelson dropped a pass against the Seattle Seahawks.


Packers outside linebacker Julius Peppers lined up as a tight end in Green Bay's goal line package, something Rodgers mentioned he wanted to do a few weeks ago.

It didn't go well.

Peppers was open in the end zone, but he dropped Rodgers' pass.


For the second time this season, the Packers played in a game where nobody punted. The previous no-punt game came at the Chicago Bears.

It was only the third time in NFL history a game was played with no punts, and the Packers now have two of them about one month apart.
