The Green Bay Packers are left with more questions than answers after losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

It was another up-and-down performance for this young team. Jordan Love made some of his best throws of the season. He played far better than the box score indicates, but as we've seen throughout the year, Love didn't get much help from the players around him.

Dropped passes and penalties continue to hurt the Packers, while the defense regressed after a handful of encouraging performances in recent weeks.

There are plenty of questions to answer after Week 10.

7. Is it time for Dontayvion Wicks?

Dontayvion Wicks can play. The Packers have many reasons to be excited about their rookie class, but fifth-round pick Wicks has been one of the standout performers this season.

Wicks knows how to get open. He creates separation and finds the soft spots in zone coverages. And it's clear he has Jordan Love's trust. The two connected on three passes for 51 yards against the Steelers, including a 32-yarder.

Wicks' role is increasing on offense. Is it time to make him a regular starter? He has easily been one of the Packers' top three receivers this season and is getting better each week. With Christian Watson struggling, Wicks deserves more opportunities.
