Aaron Rodgers has played with some seriously talented receivers over the course of his career, but few of them were more prolific than Jordy Nelson. Their most productive year came in 2014, when Nelson tallied 1,519 yards and 13 scores in 16 contests.

While that year featured plenty of highlights, it also featured one of the worst plays of Nelson's career. Check out this Week 15 drop against the Buffalo Bills.

Running wide open downfield, the usually sure-handed wideout somehow drops Rodgers' perfectly thrown pass.

The play proved to be quite consequential too, as it likely would've given Green Bay a 17-16 lead, and the Packers would go on to lose this one, 21-13. Still, Nelson wound up catching 550 passes for Green Bay, and we ranked him as the fifth-best Packers wide receiver ever, but this was undoubtedly a tough moment for the former Pro Bowler.
