Only 10 Packers on the Field During Blocked Punt for TD

I highly doubt I have any Jacksonville Jaguars fans reading this blog, so what’s a little salt in the wound of yesterday’s Packers victory to them?

Apparently someone looked at the tape of yesterday’s blocked punt, which the Pack returned for 6, and found the green and gold were a man down — and only had 10 on the field.

Obviously, it didn’t matter.

Davon House saw several players on the Jacksonville Jaguars’ punt team point him out as he shifted toward the ball from his jammer position and figured he would have no chance to get to rookie punter Bryan Anger.

He was wrong.

Even though they identified him as a possible rusher, no one blocked him, and it turned into the biggest play in the Green Bay Packers’ closer-than-expected 24-15 win on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

House, one of the Packers backup cornerbacks, had a free rush at Anger and blocked the punt, which was recovered in the end zone by rookie linebacker Dezman Moses. The touchdown gave the Packers a 14-3 lead with 8:45 left in the second quarter.

“They called it out, so I don’t know if they just blocked it wrong or what,” House said. “But I came scot-free. No one touched me at all. When I motioned in, they said something and they pointed at me, and I still came in free.”

Adding to the Jaguars’ indignity on that play was this: The Packers had only 10 players on the field, and Jacksonville still couldn’t get everyone blocked. Several players on the Packers’ punt return team said they had no idea that they were one player short. Indeed, they had only eight players in the box plus the jammer on the right side, Jarrett Bush, and return man Randall Cobb deep. The missing player appeared to be rookie Jarrett Boykin.

“Is that right?” Moses asked. “Well, we got it done anyway.”

Indeed you did.
