We all make mistakes every now and then, and sometimes we just have to scream and shout about it in frustration. That's exactly what Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers did last night during the game against the Chicago Bears.

With just under five and a half minutes left in the third quarter, the Packers were in a 3rd-and-15 situation on the Bears' 31-yard line. They needed to move down the field to try and score to retain the lead. They did neither thanks to a botched snap.

After the bad snap, the millions watching the game on national television across the USA as they ate their Thanksgiving dinner heard the two-time NFL MVP shout the profanity 'Ah F***' as the ball travel behind him for a 14-yard loss.

You could say the curse word was acceptable, as the Packers were now 29-yards away from the first down, and out of field goal range, meaning they had to punt on the following play. However, I don't think many other people were happy to hear it on Thanksgiving.

The Bears ended up winning the divisional rivalry at Lambeau Field, 17-13.

The loss moves the Packers to a record of 7-4 on the year and second in the NFC North, just behind the Minnesota Vikings on games played.

Loyal cheeseheads wouldn't have been happy with the performance by Rodgers last night, as he had his lowest QB rating of the season of 62.4 having only completed 22 of 43 passes for 202 yards, throwing a touchdown and an interception.

The Packers have only managed to win one game out of five since their bye week and fans may start shouting swears if the poor run of form continues and the Packers miss out on the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
