ROOKIE cornerback Sauce Gardner will be public enemy number one next time he goes to Green Bay.
The New York Jets star led his team in passes defended on Sunday as they beat their hometown Packers 27-10 to improve their record to 4-2.
But it wasn’t his game that enraged fans, it was his choice of headgear after the game.
The 22 year old dressed a Packers cheesehead – known to be worn by Green Bay fans.
He walked out in front of a mix of Packers and Jets fans and stared them down, raising his arms in the air as he celebrated New York’s win.
And it seems it wasn’t just the hooting Packers fans who weren’t impressed when Green Bay receiver Allen Lazard walked over to knock down the hat as he headed down the tunnel.
Jets fans loved Gardner’s celebrations, with one commenting: “Cheese Sauce!!!!! Infant!!!!”
Not that everyone liked it, as one said: “That’s just extremely disrespectful on the Sauces side, a bit on the Lazards side too”
While another wrote, “Hope the Packers take it personally and show up this year.”
Given that these teams have only met every other year since 2002, Packers fans will have to wait a while to see if their team will face Gardner next time.
But until then, their focus must be on the 2-4 Washington Commanders on Sunday, October 23rd.
On the same day, Gardner and the Jets travel to Denver to play the 2-3 Broncos.
