The Green Bay Packers lost back-to-back regular-season games for the first time under head coach Matt LaFleur. Here are the top takeaways from another disappointing performance.
After the Green Bay Packers survived against the New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback two weeks ago, it was clear they would need to be much better in the upcoming games.
Unfortunately, the Packers are only getting worse, and they have since been handed consecutive defeats from the teams in New York.
After their embarrassing performance against the New York Jets at Lambeau Field on Sunday, what were the top five takeaways?
Aaron Jones still doesn’t get enough opportunities
Is anyone else sick of hearing Matt LaFleur talk about getting Aaron Jones more involved, only for Jones to barely get the football in the following game?
“Yeah, that’s not good enough,” LaFleur said following the game when asked about Jones only having three carries in the first half.
LaFleur agrees that Jones needs more opportunities; he says as much almost every week. But when the game gets underway, the ball rarely goes his way.
When Jones is featured on offense, the Packers tend to find more rhythm. It’s hard to understand why they don’t give their best offensive playmaker more opportunities, especially as Jones entered Week 6 averaging almost 6.4 yards per carry.
Unfortunately, it has been the same old story throughout the season.
