It was a tough game for the Green Bay Packers, and a painful experience for the fans watching.

Fans at The Neighbors Bar and Grille in Waukesha took the loss pretty hard. Some said they were disappointed that the game wasn't competitive. Other said they were sad to see the Packers winning streak come to an end.

As the game entered halftime with the Packers 24 points down to the Atlanta Falcons, Nate Walters took off his sweatshirt to reveal a custom t-shirt jersey.

He is a groom in an upcoming wedding and his packer-fanatic bride has a matching shirt. They say "BRIDE" and "GROOM", respectively.

"Yeah, she is a good luck charm," Walters said of his fiancee.

But when CBS 58's Jacob Kittilstad asked Sarah Kangas about her engagement ring, she had this to say:  

"If I could trade this in for a Super Bowl ring, I would."

"I've worn this shirt, this same shirt the last three or four games. So i have to wear it again. I don't care about the wedding - whatever - the year. I love Davante Adams," Kangas said.

"You don't care about the wedding?" Jacob Kittilstad interrupted to ask.

"No! No! At this point no!" Kangas said.

That desperation became the theme of the game that seemed to only get worse.

"We're getting torn up on zone coverage which is terrible. And anyone Damarious Randall is covering is wide open which is usually a problem," John Klink, a frustrated Packers fan, said.

"Usually we [give away] jello shots on all Packer touchdowns until they run out," Chris Potratz, owner of The Neighbors Bar & Grille, said.

"I had to [give away] jello shots today during a first down. That was heartbreaking for me to do that," Potratz said.

"It's gut-retching in a sense cause we have to go home tonight and act like everything's okay. And really, deep down, you're feeling everything's not okay," Potratz said.

And without a Packers Super Bowl in the near future, the bride and groom said they still have their wedding to look forward too...

...but they still wonder why the jersey-luck wore out.

"It's clean, It's clean. I washed it," Kangas said.

"Maybe that was a mistake," Jacob Kittilstad suggested.

"Maybe that was a mistake," Kangas repeated.
