Packers Offense Becoming a Headache For Defensive Coordinators

  10 months ago     106 Views     Leave your thoughts  

A fast Ford Field could hurt the Detroit Lions tonight. A Packers offense that has been smoking hot since the Seahawks game should benefit from being indoors during tonight's game. While the Lions will have a homefield advantage and the crowd noise may be a problem, being indoors might make a great Packers offense practically unstoppable.

Will The 4th Quarter Belong to the Packers or Lions?

The Packers have at times struggled to put together 4 quarters of football in all three phases of the game. The Lions have lived on fourth quarter comebacks this year, compiling 8 and proving that they are a team that is not to be counted out at any point in a game.

But McCarthy uses the statistical data to get a clearer picture of tendencies and understand where the focus needs to be, and that is valuable. So from time to time, I do "Circle the Stat" and pull out a stat or two that I think matter and talk about why it matters.

This has been a rough Monday for Packer Nation. As one after another player goes down (and or out for the season), Packers fans must be at the point of cringing every time another report comes out. After an improved outing against the Chicago Bears, it looks like the Packers offense is going to have to begin to score more points if the team is going to be successful moving forward. Now, with word that Jared Abbrederis is on the list of IR players, the wide receiver corps, while not the triage unit of the defensive backfield, also takes a…
