Jonathan Owens and the Green Bay Packers secured a 23-20 victory against the Los Angeles Chargers. Despite the win, a notable moment saw Owens targeted by fans after the undrafted tight end, Stone Smartt, scored a 51-yard touchdown against him.
Owens‘ wife, Simone Biles, present at the game, became a subject of fan criticism following the play.
“Your husband sucks,” a fan posted on X.
Another added after the aforementioned play: “If I were Simone Biles, I’d be on the phone to a divorce lawyer after watching that tackle attempt.”
“Simone Biles gotta be embarrassed after that sorry attempt of a tackle,” a third wrote.
Narrow victory for the Packers amid Jones injury concern
The Chargers briefly led 10-7 in a competitive matchup. The decisive moment came on the Chargers‘ final drive, with Kenny Clark batting down Justin Herbert‘s fourth-down pass.
The victory, however, came at a potential cost as Packers‘ running back Aaron Jones appeared to injure his knee, though initial concerns of an ACL injury were later alleviated by head coach Matt LaFleur.
“I don’t think it’s long-term,” LaFleur noted.
“Certainly, I think it really looked bad. I was really concerned just seeing it live. I didn’t see a replay or anything, but seeing it live it did not look good. But he’s in good spirits in there and so, hopefully, it’s just a short-term deal.”
