BET À DAY
The situation is far from improving for quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers who are closer to a playoff exclusion than a Super Bowl conquest.
Wisconsin is down 3-5 after suffering a fourth straight loss on Sunday night.
A 27-17 loss at of the Buffalo Bills will make it even more difficult for them, as they will first have to get back to a .500 record to have any chance of extending their season in January.
Defeats are obviously frustrating, but it's up to the players to lift their heads in order to get their club back on track.
“Nobody feels sad for us. We have to find a way to pocket a victory. If we can get one, the wind will change sides,” predicted Rodgers at the end of the game, as reported by the NFL.com site.
To do this, the veteran wants to bet on a wide receiver group revamped and nothing is played in 2022.
Also, according to “Sports Illustrated” magazine, expect to see the Packers trade by Tuesday, the NFL trade deadline, in order to improve at this position.
On Sunday, the Bills gave them more chances to run, but without aerial play, Green Bay will not be able to take full advantage of the qualities of Rodgers, who must surely miss his former teammate Davante Adams, today with the Las Vegas Raiders.
“We're going to have to take the ball from one end of the field to the other to win games in this league,” he said.
Shooting yourself in the foot
< p>Not only will the attack have to keep and carry the ball, but also score points. Against the Bills, two failed attempts on fourth downs and one yard to go hurt.
On the second of them, head coach Matt LaFleur ordered a ground play despite the absence of safety halfbacks in the opposing camp.
Then, there are the eight penalties for 58 yards received by the Packers which largely harmed their cause.
“We are beaten by the penalties and that takes away points from the scoreboard, while extending the sequences, lamented the instructor to the official website of the organization. We had opportunities and we did not know how to capitalize. We have to finish our offensive pushes and we can't fall behind quickly in a game against great teams.
Green Bay will face the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
