The Green Bay Packers went from Super Bowl contenders to in a full on nervous breakdown.
In a losing effort to the Minnesota Vikings, the Packers might have lost their starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers for the rest of the season.
Rodgers broke his collarbone after taking a big hit from Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr and left the field on a cart for further evaluation in the team’s locker room.
Once the Packers announced that Rodgers might be out for the rest of the year, the only community owned team went absolutely nuts.
QB Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone. There's a chance he could miss the rest of the season.

The Packers have already announced that they will be going with their 2015 fifth round pick Brett Hundley at quarterback. Hundley has never started a game in the NFL, and has only attempted 11 passes over the course of his career. The former UCLA Bruin will need to win at least six games this season to give the Packers a shot at getting into the playoffs.
By the looks of how Packer fans are reacting on Twitter, they aren’t overwhelmingly confident that he’ll be able to pull it off.
