Forty footballs ruined during Packers-Titans preseason game

By Matt Trebby. CREATED Aug 10, 2014

Saturday night's game between the Packers and Titans obviously was wet. The play in the first half wasn't the only thing that suffered from the conditions.

According to the Titans media relations team, an incredible amount of footballs were used last night:

Another crazy part of that is all of them were ruined. They ruined 40 perfectly good footballs for a preseason game. Oh well…

Matt Flynn discussed his performance, and noted how he wasn't really able to get into the game because the rain was heaviest while he was playing.

Fellow quarterback Scott Tolzien also discussed the conditions with Larry McCarren after the game, saying the Packers will have to get used to not playing in ideal conditions.
