It was a terrible day to be Justin Jefferson.
There’s no easy way to put it: he got humiliated.
Packers Pro Bowl cornerback Jaire Alexander set himself up for disaster after calling the Vikings star wideout a scrub ahead of their Week 17 meeting.
However, the Packers defense put the clamps on Jefferson all game, limiting him to one catch for 15 yards (five targets).
Green Bay destroyed the Vikes, 41-17.
In the first half, following a PBU on Jefferson, Alexander rubbed the goose-egg performance in his face by hitting the Griddy, which is JJ’s signature dance.
It was mad disrespectful.
Jefferson’s not just disappointing the Vikings, who were down two scores halfway through the game (17-3), he also let fantasy football managers amid championship weekend. He recorded a total of 2.5 points (1 PT PPR) in the season’s biggest game.
Worst of all, Jefferson nearly had his day cut short before the break.
When Vikings QB threw his second interception of the game to Adrian Amos in the second, Jefferson frustratingly took off his helmet and almost slammed it into a nearby official. He grazed the ref and somehow did not get ejected from the game.
It’s clear Alexander’s smack-talking got in Jefferson’s head.
Maybe spend less time practicing TikTok dances and more time learning how to create separation, JJ.
