The Green Bay Packers are coming off a brutal loss to the New York Giants. After a 27-22 defeat in London, the Packers are back to the drawing board. Specifically on how to finish games. Recently they seem to start fast, but end slow. We have seen these two out of the last three weeks. The Packers failed to put up a single second-half point vs the Patriots (week three) and the Giants (week five). No, we are not going to count the safety the Giants gifted Green Bay at the end of the game in London. In his weekly appearance on Pat McAfee, Aaron Rodgers pleaded for two players to get involved more. Marcedes Lewis and Allen Lazard.
Marcedes Lewis and Allen Lazard not being utilized enough?
“I’ve talked many times about our best 11,” Rodgers told “The Pat McAfee Show.” Over and over, ‘Big Dog’ has shown up, dominating the line of scrimmage in the run game. I hope we can keep giving him opportunities, here and there in the pass game when we can. He’s very elusive with the ball in his hands. He can do little things in the passing game, especially in the red zone, so I hope we can get him some more looks.”
“We gotta get Allen more involved too, whether that’s calling more plays for him or me giving him a few more looks. Allen is such a talented guy for us, we have to find ways of getting the ball in his hands.”
