With just three minutes remaining for the game to end, the Packers were leading 24-19. QB Jordan Love threw the ball toward Watson, which he caught and then raced around the edge of the field toward the end zone. Just then, he knelt on the ground and crumbled. He grabbed his leg and winced in pain. After he walked off the field, Rapoport revealed his injury status a day later. “It seemed like this one was more okay than not.”

But he agreed that hamstring injuries can be tricky, and the fact that he has suffered several hamstring injuries in the past just complicates the entire situation. The Packers would likely want to err on the side of caution, and Watson will miss some more games this season. He had also missed the starting three games of the season with an injured right hamstring.

This will be a terrible loss for the 0.500 Packers since the chemistry between the WR and the QB was just blooming.

Quarterback Jordan’s ‘love’ for Watson

In the Sunday game, Watson caught seven passes and scored two TDs before going down. In the first seven games that he played this season, he did not catch more than three passes, so in that regard, his Chiefs game was a season milestone. And the dynamics between the QB and WR will ensure that he will continue to deliver.

The WR had nothing but praise for his leader. Christian said, “The only word I can think of is extraordinary. I think that his comfortability, his confidence, his ability to make plays is just, we’re seeing it more and more every week.”

I am a hardcore believer in the ?Mamba Mentality?, which certainly applies to the NFL. The sport is not just about physical prowess but also demands a powerful mindset. Growing up, I spent time with athletes on the neighborhood soccer field.
