3 things the Packers must fix entering Week 4 vs. Patriots
2. Packers need to be more consistent on offense
We have seen some great moments from the Packers’ offense this season, but they have been too inconsistent.
It’s not a surprise given the changes made at wide receiver. Green Bay has two rookie receivers in Romeo Doubs and Christian Watson. The offensive line has also been reshuffled throughout the season due to injuries and players returning.
But the offense has been frustratingly inconsistent.
They scored touchdowns on the opening two drives against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and had the ball in the red zone on the third possession before Aaron Jones fumbled. From that moment, Green Bay punted seven times and Aaron Rodgers threw a pick.
After scoring 14 points on the opening two drives and lining up with first-and-goal on the third possession, the Packers’ offense looked unstoppable. They looked on course for a comfortable road win.
But they wouldn’t score again for the rest of the game.
It was a similar story in Week 2. Green Bay’s offense flew out of the gates with 24 first-half points and three touchdowns in the second quarter. But after the half, they couldn’t get out of first gear and added just three more points to the total.
Fortunately, their first-half performances on offense were enough the past two weeks. But the Packers need to find more consistency on offense to close out games when they’re ahead and keep pace when they’re behind.
