At Lambeau Field, before the Green Bay Packerslost to the Detroit Lions 18-16, a fan shouted out a screed against Muslims during the moment of silence.

That did not sit well with Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who called out the fan in his postgame comments.

“I must admit, I was very disappointed with whoever the fan was that made a comment that was very inappropriate during the moment of silence,” Rodgers said.
