Tight ends: C
We didn’t see a lot from Green Bay’s tight ends on Sunday, particularly in the passing game. Robert Tonyan was the only tight end to make a reception; he had three catches for 33 yards on four targets, including a 23-yard reception. Despite playing on 31 percent of the offensive snaps, Jace Sternberger didn’t make an impact.
Offensive line: B
The good part was that Aaron Rodgers was only sacked once in the game. But this wasn’t the best performance by the offensive line in what has been an otherwise great season for this group. Penalties proved costly with the line being flagged four times (Billy Turner twice), according to NFLPenalties.com.
As noted in the running backs section, the ground game couldn’t get going with the Jaguars’ front seven dominating for much of the game. Pass protection was strong but it was a surprising off-day for the rushing attack.
Defensive line: D
Opponents know the blueprint to slowing down the Packers, which is to run the ball often. Jacksonville was physical up front and talented rookie running back James Robinson impressed with 109 yards on 23 carries with two touchdowns called back on questionable penalties.
Until the Packers improve up front and stop the run, teams are going to keep running at them.
