Packers-Ravens: Post-game notes

Rodgers gets his feet wet; Gado sprains knee

Backup quarterback Aaron Rodgers finally got some playing time, but it was under adverse conditions. Rodgers, played in his first game since Green Bay's blowout win over the New Orleans Saints on Oct. 9, entering Monday night's game late in the third quarter with the Ravens ahead 41-3.

Rodgers, who completed his only pass for no yards against the Saints, was 8-of-15 for 65 yards against the Ravens. Rodgers lost two fumbles and threw an interception while finishing while facing a heavy dose of blitzes from the mighty Ravens defense. He scrambled once for a gain of eight yards.

"He did some nice things at times," said Packers coach Mike Sherman. "Obviously there were some turnovers. … I thought he made pretty good decisions for the most part."
