Packers and Titans brawl after Aaron Rodgers was hit late

The Green Bay Packers had an absolutely shocking day at the office, going down 47-25 to Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee Titans earlier today.

Aaron Rodgers was by no means to blame for the Packers taking a loss by such a heavy margin but he was at the center of a brawl between both sets of players during the second half of the game in Nashville.

As the Green Bay quarterback scampered in for a rushing touchdown, he took a shot from Titans cornerback Perrish Cox after crossing the goal line. That caused one hell of a ruckus that you can see below...

Cox's late hit on Rodgers - which was flagged and penalised by the refereeing crew - drew the ire of Packers wide receiver Davante Adams, who made his presence known and caused the rumble.

Cox was penalised 15 yards for unnecessary roughness and, fortunately, no one was ejected from the game for their role in the scuffle. 

Despite the poor play of the Packers and questions about Rodgers' performances in recent weeks, it is good to see that his teammates in Green Bay are still behind him. Seeing players rush in to defend their quarterback means that the former MVP hasn't lost any chemistry in the locker room.
