Next came a tweet by ESPN's Rob Demovsky quoting Montgomery as saying he has always been told to take a knee in the end zone but he was unsure if that's where he was going to catch it, so he made a split-second decision to not chance it. "People respecting my speed, we felt like if I could run fast and then stop, of course they were going to keep running".
Before kick-off, the Rams were 7.5-point favourites over the Packers, meaning Los Angeles bettors needed the Rams to win by eight points or more in order to cash their ticket.
"That's the situational awareness we talk about", Rams coach Sean McVay said. He also said he has never been one to outright disobey what he is told to do. The Packers' decision to remove him from the game perhaps led Montgomery into deciding to return the kickoff, according to one player.
"We go over this stuff every week". We know what to do in what situations.
"We made a mistake".
For the Packers then, that was a selfish player and a situational disaster.
Following a controversial fumble on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams that cost the Packers one last shot at a game-winning drive, Montgomery had lost favor in Title Town with the organization and certainly its fans.

The Baltimore Ravens ground game has been miserable to put it lightly.
Montgomery is only 25 years old and has shown that he's versatile, especially as a kick returner, so the Ravens are getting a very talented player.
"It's very frustrating that the perception in the media now is no one has my back".
"I saw the word "tantrum" used - obviously it was sent to me", Montgomery said.
Instead of playing it safe and taking a knee, the versatile tailback tried to make the biggest play of the game.
I feel bad for Montgomery.
He sure found a way to hurt his team.
"I've already addressed that", he said. Both are headed to free agency after this season. He played in 71 regular-season games with 65 starts for Green Bay, recording 419 tackles (337 solo), 5.5 sacks, 14 interceptions and 38 passes defensed. Against good defenses, the Ravens' running game has been ineffective and when teams bottle up John Brown, it looks like they do not have a solution to their offensive problems.
