“We can’t lose a game like that against that team, though,” Rodgers said.

The two-time reigning MVP was asked whether he regretted not retiring.

“I think that’s an exaggeration,” he said. “Frustration and miserability (sic) are two different emotions. When I decided to come back it was all-in, and I don’t make decisions in hindsight.

“So I was all-in, and this is a lot of life lessons for sure this year, but luckily it’s not over. There’s still a lot of games left. We’ll be counted out, probably, by many, and we’ll see how we respond.”

Rodgers’ touchdown pass was thrown to Allen Lazard. The wide receiver finished with four catches for 87 yards and a touchdown. The score came in the third quarter and cut the deficit to two points after a missed two-point attempt.
