5. Geronimo Allison
Geronimo Allison didn’t have a monster game, but he did make solid contributions when the Packers needed them, such as the combination of plays he made just before the half.
On third-and-six with 30 seconds left, Allison hauled in a tough catch as he was hammered by Eagles defenders for a 31-yard gain and a first down around the 20-yard line.
After a spike to stop the clock, Allison caught a touchdown pass to pull the Packers within one point entering halftime. If not for that sequence of plays, the Packers would have been down by eight points coming out of halftime and then by 15 after the Eagles scored after the break.
The Packers desperately need someone to step up alongside Adams. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allison have both shown signs of being able to; now they just need to show consistency.
It was just one game and only one loss. After the weekend, the Packers are still in first place of the NFC North and in control with a 2-0 record in the division.
Although the offense had the best showing they have had on the young season, there is still more to be done.
Next up is a Cowboys team with an even better offensive line and running game. After three straight weeks of bad showings against the ground game, the defense will need to figure something out.
Hopefully, the mini bye week can get injured players healthy and the team will be ready to roll down in Dallas.
