Cheese Curds, 10/27: Aaron Rodgers on Conan, Lambeau to get replacement turf

The Packers’ injured star goes on TV during the bye week and an animal on the field on TNF gets us looking back at past hilarious animal moments in football.

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Baltimore Ravens Patrick McDermott-USA TODAY Sports

On Thursday Night Football, the Baltimore Ravens drubbed the Miami Dolphins, but the best moment of the night came from an intruder on the field. In the fourth quarter, a cat ran out onto the playing surface at M&T Bank Stadium, adding a little levity to an ugly game.

Meanwhile, Aaron Rodgers sits down with Conan O’Brien and a special guest during the Green Bay Packers’ bye week. Plus the Packers announce a plan to replace the turf at Lambeau Field in the offseason.

See all that and more in today’s curds.

For today’s final curd, we have the full video of Aaron Rodgers’ “Clueless Gamer” segment on Conan with Conan O’Brien, and he’s joined by David Bakhtiari. Conan has fun with both Packers, and Rodgers is clearly a bit more entertained by the jokes at Bakhtiari’s expense than the left tackle is.
