Top performers for the Packers in Week 10 win versus Jaguars.
No win comes easy in the NFL. Not even when the opponent is 1-7 and on a seven-game losing streak. Not when the wind affects your passing game and not when you don’t play up to your potential.
Yet, the Green Bay Packers won’t apologize for the win as they are now 7-2 and in control of the NFC North.
Jacksonville came into the game as big underdogs and gave Green Bay all they could handle and brought the game down to the final minute.
The Jaguars were the more physical team on this afternoon, controlling the lines up front on both offense and defense and gave Aaron Rodgers’ number one target Davante Adams fits with their physical play on the outside.
The game didn’t start out on the right note for the offense. For the first time all season, they didn’t score on their opening drive, going three-and-out. The wind was once again a factor as a pass to Robert Tonyan that could have resulted in a first down floundered in the wind and fell incomplete.
It wouldn’t get any easier for the Packers in the first quarter as they were held scoreless until the start of the second quarter.
The defense was once again gashed in the run game with James Robinson putting up over 100 yards on the ground.
Even with the ground game working and the Packers shorthanded in the secondary, the defense was still able to make a stop when it mattered to secure the win.
It wasn’t pretty but it was a win and these three players shined brightest in the game.
