Jaire Alexander: Eight Total Tackles, 0.5 Sacks, Tackle for Loss
Rookie cornerback Jaire Alexander also had a big game for the Packers’ defense against Minnesota. He ended the game with eight total tackles, with one of those being for a loss. Alexander also recorded half a sack.
Perhaps the biggest play of the game that didn’t count was Alexander’s interception that would have sealed the game. Unfortunately, Clay Matthews was called for a roughing the passer penalty that let the Vikings continue driving.
Alexander is without question one of the stars of Week 2 for the Packers. He made some big plays and was a sure tackler. Watching him develop is going to be fun for fans in Green Bay.
