Rapper Trey Songz was at the center of the controversial Giants wide receiver corp’s all-night South Beach club-athon and early morning shirtless yacht photo shoot. Building up to the game, the controversy had reached a point where it became clear that if the Giants lost, the trip would become a media piñata.
After taking a 7-6 lead on a short touchdown pass to Davante Adams, the Green Bay defense gave him the ball back with just over a minute to go in the first half. Rodgers was able to move the offense into position to try a Hail Mary.
Rodgers connected with Randall Cobb on the bomb, his third answered prayer in his career, including previous passes against the Lions and Cardinals. The score gave the Pack a 14-6 lead heading into halftime, and proved to be the body punch that led to the second half Green Bay avalanche, and 38-13 win.

Following the TD, Songz sent out a tweet to remind angry Giants fans who were prepared to blame the Giants wide receivers in the event of any loss. He wanted to make sure it was clear that the Giants DB’s who gave up the score weren’t on the boat trip.
DB’s weren’t on the yacht. Just a lil FYI

The whole boat trip controversy is stupid to begin with, and is a lazy crutch for an angry fan base to point to as they monday morning quarterback a tough loss.
Wide receivers on boats isn’t as big a problem for the Giants’ as their quarterback who can’t throw the ball in the ocean.
