Green Bay Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander returned on Monday night for the Green Bay Packers from a back injury, but he didn’t hold back from talking to the media in a 17-13 loss on the road against the Las Vegas Raiders. After the game was over, he stood at his locker and told the media:
“Yeah I thik at this point it’s pretty obvious that the defense has to not give up any touchdowns. The offense is pretty young and they’re still figuring out their mojo. The defense, we gotta be the ones to score and stop them from scoring.”
This was the best game that the Packers’ defense has probably played since Week 1 against the Chicago Bears. Green Bay should have won last night but didn’t because the offense not performing well and hasn’t been over the past few weeks.
Jaire Alexander also told the media in regards to the defense being better and also “be more self-critical“:
“No definitely not. On defense on our side we left a couple of plays out there. A couple third downs we should have gotten off. In the course of a game like this, it adds up.”
Alexander realizes that the Packers’ losses can’t have a snowball effect on them. They have lost two in a row, and this is the perfect time for a bye-week to clean things up. There is still a lot of football left to be played, and they are looking to avoid missing the playoffs for the second consecutive season.
