Packers had no real offensive threat in the game.
Aaron Rodgers threw for a career low of 77 yards and was sacked three times for 27 yards (all late in the game). The running game was equally as inept, gaining 90 yards on 21 attempts. The longest play for the Packers was a 17 yard scamper for Aaron Rodgers after he was able to break the Broncos smothering containing defense.
The Packers had a balanced attack with 22 passes and 21 runs. The problem was they could not sustain their attacks. 43 plays is not nearly enough.
A tough outing all around.
