The Green Bay Packers lost 29-27 to the Los Angeles Rams but won in one respect: Their fans traveled well – and traveled loudly – to California.
Silent snap count at home
Via Packers reporter Michael Cohen of The Athletic, there were so many Green Bay fans at the Coliseum the Rams used a silent snap count on offense.
Cohen tweeted that Rams right guard, Austin Blythe, was looking back to Goff then flashing his hand in front of center John Sullivan to indicate he should snap the ball.
The Packers were in Los Angeles for the first time in over 17 years, and fans certainly took advantage of their team playing in sunny Southern California instead of Lambeau Field.
Whether it’s because of the snap count or not, Green Bay’s defense had three first-half sacks against Jared Goff and the Rams’ line.
The Rams rallied to beat Green Bay, crowd noise or not, and there was another benefit to using the silent snap count: L.A. plays in New Orleans next week, which is arguably the loudest stadium in the NFL.
