LONDON — Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford said Thursday that he doesn’t care if the Green Bay Packers lose on Monday night to the Seattle Seahawks.
“I have no worries,” Stafford said.
“We know what we have to do.”
Rodgers was given a one-game suspension for the incident in which he hit Packers safety Ty Montgomery with a helmet.
The incident was a game-changing moment in a 2-0 Packers victory.
Stafford was named the game MVP on the heels of the incident.
“It was a great play,” Stafford told reporters.
“A great opportunity for me.
You never know, you might get hit, but I didn’t really care.
You know, I know what I can do.
That’s all I care about.”
Rodgers said he was “stressed out” on the sideline after the game and was still going through his recovery process.
“The first thing I think about is my teammates, the team, and what I’m going through and just trying to get back to the right place,” Rodgers said.
Rodgers said the incident was one of the best moments of his career.
“When you see a guy who has the talent, you can’t help but respect it and go out and compete at the highest level,” he said.
The Packers are 3-0 and have won three straight games.
Packers defensive end Julius Peppers was fined $25,000 for unnecessary roughness during the Seahawks game.
