Packers Jets Game Review

 

Arizona Cardinals v Green Bay Packers

This was a strange game. It seemed like it was two games in one. The first half seemed the Packers were playing conservative. In the game when the Packers were fourth and two in the red zone. McCarthy chose to kick a field goal. In the second half McCarthy got aggressive and did an onside kick. Aaron Rodgers couldn’t stretch the field in the first half then in the second half he was flinging it all over the field. Let’s look at four things that made a difference in the Packers win.

1. Jordy Nelson: He earned his paycheck for the game. Nelson owned the Jet’s secondary. Even though the Jet’s secondary isn’t very good. Nelson played physical with the Jet’s secondary. We’ll need that physical play going forward.

2. The defense: I know the defense didn’t play the greatest. But, when they needed to make a stop they did. Capers used the blitz to make Geno Smith nervous. Also, the defense stopped the run. Which the run is the Jet’s bread and butter.

3. Special teams: I doubt I’ll ever say this again. Mason Crosby is a good kicker. His fifty-five yard field goal was the longest in Lambeau. I hope we count on Crosby when we need him.

4. Offensive line: It wasn’t the greatest. But, when needed to protect Rodgers they did. The offensive line is getting better. They still need to get Lacy some more holes to run through.

The Packers are doing enough to win. But, they cannot be just good enough if they want to win another Super Bowl. Detroit is up next and will be another tough test.
