Worst loss: The Green Bay Packers recorded their worst loss of the 17-year Aaron Rodgers era yesterday with a 38–3 embarrassment at the hands of the Drew Brees–less New Orleans Saints. Maybe all that took its toll?

- Meanwhile, Cleveland Browns star Odell Beckham Jr. didn’t even make it to the field, with his keeping him out of the lineup for the 33–29 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
