WATCH: Skydiver At Lambeau Field Crashes Into Stadium Wall During Packers-Panthers Halftime
At halftime of the Sunday contest between the Green Bay Packers and the Carolina Panthers, a skydiver attempted what could be called his very own version of the famous “Lambeau Leap.”
As the skydiver descended down onto the field, he couldn’t quite stick the landing and ended up hitting the padded wall in the right corner of the end zone. Not to alarm the spectators, though, the man popped right back up and gestured to the crowd, signaling that he was okay.
Immediately following the incident, Fox Sports tweeted: “During halftime at Lambeau, a skydiver crashed into a wall while landing. He popped right up though and seemed to be ok!”

This incident only echoed the hard hits of the Packers defense, as they would go on to win the game 24-16 and hold elusive Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey to just 141 total yards from scrimmage.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers praised his running back, Aaron Jones, following the win and Jones’ second three-touchdown performance of the year.
“We all know that Christian is a very talented player, and he’s been mentioned in the MVP race. So maybe it’s time to start talking about Aaron Jones,” Rodgers said.
Jones remained humble after the dominant performance, mostly doling out credit to his blockers:
“I’m just glad I could help my team get the win. It all starts up front with those guys getting the push up front and the rest of the blocking unit,” said Jones, who has a career-high 11 scores on the ground this season.
Following the loss, McCaffrey was quick to turn the focus to next week and to rally his team in anticipation of their matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. “You’ve just got to move on, you’ve got to get better this week,” McCaffrey said.
The Packers currently sit at 8-2 and are in first place in the NFC North. On November 24, they will travel to San Francisco to take on the 49ers.
As for the skydiver, one can only speculate as to whether or not he will continue to practice his “Lambeau Leap.”
