In Week 7, Green Bay managed to move on quickly from an unsightly loss at home to the Dallas Cowboys to eventually get back into the winner’s column against their rival Chicago Bears.
After finally finding some things that worked offensively and with about 10 days to prepare for their next game, there was hope for a possible run continuing against an Atlanta team which was 4-3 and reeling off a couple straight losses.
Despite somehow ending up even more injury-depleted than before at multiple positions going into the contest (among the names expected to play in this contest who didn’t: Ty Montgomery, Randall Cobb, and Clay Matthews) and having others drop off for stretches (among those missing parts of this game: LaDarius Gunter and T.J. Lang), Green Bay had plenty of opportunity to win this game.
Unfortunately, the team came up just short, losing 33-32 in the final minute.
So what happened which eventually caused this disappointing outcome in what tended to be an exciting game?
Let’s take a look.
