The Green Bay Packers cannot do anything about this now. Their season came to an end on Saturday night against the San Francisco 49ers at Lambeau Field.

According to social media posts, the Packers may have had just 10 players on the field in their final play of the 2021 season. 49ers kicker Robbie Gould made the game-winning 45-yard field goal.

Traditionally, teams have 11 players on the field at a time. Sports Illustrated asked, “Did the Packers only have 10 players on the field for the final play?

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero saw the same thing. He tweeted out, “The NFL’s worst special teams unit turned in one of the worst special teams performances in NFL playoff history… and appears to have had only 10 men on the field for the winning field goal.

The picture that Pelissero shared on Twitter, it shows only 10 Packers players on the field. He also adds that this game-winning field goal attempt came after a timeout.

With the win, the Packers are eliminated from the playoffs. The 49ers are still alive, as they will face either the Los Angeles Rams or the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next weekend in the NFC Conference Championship game.

The 49ers will be on the road either against the Rams at SoFi Stadium or against the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.
