It was a tale of two halves in Green Bay, as the Jets early 21-3 lead was erased by a Packers' 21-point run. The Pack went on to win 31-24, sending the Jets home with their first loss of the season. Postgame the players reacted to their up-and-down performance and the blown lead.

Geno Smith: "We didn't put enough points on the board in the second half…When you face a good quarterback and a great team, like the Packers, you've got to score points and you've got to finish drives."

Muhammad Wilkerson: "I lost my cool, I let my emotions get the best of me…I let my teammates down, we're a family here and I let everybody down. I apologized to everybody in the locker room. I can't do that. I'm a leader of this team and that's just not the way I was supposed to act."

Calvin Pryor: "They took what we gave them. Sometimes I felt like we weren't as aggressive as we should have been. But they took what we gave them and they just chipped away the lead."

Demario Davis: "Success is right there for us. It's really up to the leaders to push the guys at their position, to hold them accountable. If our leaders aren't holding their guys accountable, to play at the highest level they can play, then we're not going to be as successful as we can."

Dee Milliner: "I felt good when I first got in there. Towards the end [the ankle] tightened up on me a little bit and I actually told Tone to go back in for me...I felt like he could do better at  the time."

Antonio Allen: "We had the momentum. We were making third down stops, we were getting off the field, we were doing everything right. And then I guess [Rodgers] kind of caught on to [us]…[he] got a couple short throws here and there, got in rhythm. And we weren't able to get him out of the rhythm."

Jeremy Kerley: "I think we just came out the second half a little flat, I think we should have came out with a little more fire. But that's a learning experience. Just gotta put it behind us and get ready for Chicago."
