From the moment Andrew Quarless dropped the first pass Aaron Rodgers threw in the game, there was sort of a sense—a feeling in the back of my head—that this was going to be one of those days.

According to Pro Football Focus, Packer receivers had six drops on Sunday. In 13 games prior to Sunday, the Packers had 25 drops.

Yes, it was one of those days and at no time was it more evident than when Jordy Nelson did this:

When Rodgers got to halftime with a stat line of 8-for-24 for 70 yards and the game was still tied at 10-10, there was hope that the Packers could make some adjustments and get things turned around.

But Rodgers finished 17-for-42 for 185, threw two picks and no touchdowns.

Yes, there were six drops, but there were also 18 balls that were off-target.
