There were plenty of people in Wisconsin who were happy when Aaron Rodgers went down in his first series with the Jets on Monday Night Football.

Not for the reasons you’re thinking of though. They weren’t upset that he wasn’t with the Packers anymore or anything like that. It’s because of a special bar deal Jack’s American Pub in Wisconsin had going on.
Before the game, they announced that if the Jets lost the game, everyone would receive all of their drinks for free. So when Rodgers went down after only 4 plays they got excited because like most of the world, they thought the Bills would take care of the Jets which caused them to rack up their bar tabs. Josh Allen however had different plans.
Allen had 4 turnovers including 3 interceptions during the game but the Bills still had the chance to win the game after forcing overtime. In overtime though, the Bills couldn’t make anything happen and they had to punt away and the rest is history because undrafted rookie Xavier Gibson ran back a punt return to win the game.
This is incredible. A Wisconsin bar offered free drinks if the Jets lost. After Rodgers went down, they started running up their tabs. The news was live when the jets won in overtime and everyone realized they had to pay. pic.twitter.com/1QDVJq9Zlr

The moment the Pub’s patrons realized they would have to pay their expensive bar tabs is priceless. The bar though made a killing.
