Aaron Jones may have scored four touchdowns on Monday, but Bryan Engel was the MVP of the night.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones’ father passed away earlier this year at the age of 56 due to complications with COVID-19.
Playing with a heavy heart, Jones had a necklace created to house a portion of his father’s ashes to wear, including during games.
During one of the four scores on MNF, the necklace fell loose and was lost in the turf. The topic was brought up during Jones’ postgame interview, where he mentioned that he had lost the necklace somewhere in the end zone, but that’s exactly where he dad would have wanted him to do so if he was going to lose it anywhere.
The last man on the field that night (or the next morning for that matter) was Packers trainer Bryan Engel, who was captured walking the end zone area step by step looking for the pendant.
