Jaguars vs. Packers 2012 blocked punt: Green Bay had 10 men on field

When the Packers blocked the Jaguars punt on Sunday, Green Bay only had 10 players on the field.


The Jacksonville Jaguars had a Bryan Anger punt blocked on Sunday that the Green Bay Packers recovered for a touchdown. The block looked like the Jaguars just let a free rusher come, but Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey said it wasn't on just one player.

"That was just a miscommunication," Mularkey told reporters on Monday. "I haven’t used any excuses of we had to put guys in different spots but we had new guys in different spots due to injuries, and was just a miscommunication of a call in a couple different areas. Not one guy in particular but a number of guys had a chance to make that not happen. It’s been cleaned up obviously, but it was miscalled. There is a number count. You’re counting guys and we mis-numbered it."

Not only did the Jaguars have a miscommunication with some new players in the formation, but the Packers didn't even have a full unit on the field for the play.

"Yeah, that had a lot to do with it because you look outside and see who’s covering your gunners and you absolutely assume that the difference is inside and it wasn’t," Mularkey said about the Packers having only 10 men on the field for the punt block.
