“I’m at the Lowest Point”- Marquez Valdes-Scantling Reacts to Disappointing Colts Loss

November 24, 2020 3:58 am

Due to an unfortunate turn of events on Sunday, the Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay Packers suffered their 3rd defeat of the season at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts. The Packers looked in control as the game went into overtime.

However, Frank Reich’s defensive stars had other plans. After a strong first half, the Packers looked like they were on their way to another win on Sunday. But the Colts scored 17-straight points at the very start of the second half to force the game into OT.

Green Bay wideout Marquez Valdes-Scantling was having a productive game on Sunday. But all that changed in overtime. The promising wide receiver fumbled the ball in his team’s second play after a tackle from Julian Blackmon.

The Colts got the ball at the 29-yard line. Kicker Rodrigo Blankenship later nailed a 39-yard field goal to seal a massive 34-31 win in Week 11.

As expected, MVS went from hero to zero in an instant due to that last-minute fumble in OT. But the Packers star showed great character by appearing in today’s press meet to address Sunday’s unfortunate loss.

Valdes-Scantling admitted that he must accept responsibility for the defeat, but also lashed out at all the ‘trolls’ on social media.

Humans are gonna make mistakes. There’s no way around that … as long as I’m happy with God and God is happy with me, I could care less what a man has to say about me,” Valdes-Scantling said via Matt Schneidman.

On 3 receptions, MVS had 55 receiving yards in last night’s loss to the Colts. He’s been a crucial cog in the Packers’ offense this season, especially due to injuries to stars like Davante Adams and Allen Lazard.

The 26-year-old has 500+ yards with 4 receiving TDs in 2020. He will look to put this disappointment behind him as the Packers aim to make the Playoffs this season.
