It’s mostly bad for the Green Bay Packers on Sunday
at MetLife Stadium. Currently https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Kevin-King-Jersey , the Packers trail the New York Jets 21-7 in the second quarter.There has been one bright spot for the Packers in the first half, however. The team’s one touchdown in this game came from local hero Jake Kumerow, the product of Wisconsin—Whitewater. From just across midfield, Kumerow lined up just inside the numbers on the right side and ran a go route.Kumerow burned the cornerback in coverage, and Aaron Rodgers hit him downfield with the football as Kumerow made a move to shake a tackler and get to the end zone:That reception went for a 49-yard touchdown. It was the third catch of Kumerow’s career and his first professional touchdown, and it brought the Packers back within seven points of the Jets at 14-7. However, New York’s Andre Roberts returned the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown, giving the Jets their two-touchdown lead back. GREEN BAY, Wis. 鈥?Another close loss on the road left the Green Bay Packers in a huge hole when it comes to their flickering postseason hopes.Quarterback Aaron Rodgers laid out the grim scenario left behind after a 24-1 loss in Minnesota.More Packers coverageProtecting QB Aaron Rodgers will be Packers’ priority vs. BearsPackers place starting guard Bell on IR, sign OL SiragusaStaTuesday: Packers’ Rodgers sets record with INT-free streakPackers Snap Counts: Patrick shows fight in first startUpon Further Review: Packers vs. Falcons“We’re going to need some help from some teams and then we’ve got to take care of our own business, you know?” he said. “We’re going to have to find a way to win a game on the road. We’re 0-6 on the road. We’ve got to beat Arizona Clay Matthews Jersey , and then come back and beat Atlanta, then go to Chicago 鈥?a place we’ve won a number of times 鈥?beat them, go to New York around Christmas (and) beat them, and then come home against Detroit (and) beat them. Get a little help.”Green Bay limped home from its fourth defeat in five games with a 4-6-1 record. The Packers are in 10th place in the NFC playoff race. Washington (6-5) leads the chase for the final postseason berth. Seattle and Carolina also are 6-5 and Philadelphia is 5-6. It all adds up to long odds for the Packers, who haven’t won back-to-back games all season.Green Bay does have the easiest remaining schedule, which starts with home games against Arizona (2-9) and Atlanta (4-7).“I think our team has done a really good job keeping their eye on the target,” coach Mike McCarthy said Monday. “They’re playing hard. They’re giving us everything they’ve got. As their coaching staff, we’re just going to keep giving them everything we’ve got. We need to coach better and we need to play better.”Green Bay’s offense has been startlingly bad on third downs. The Packers converted only 2 of 10 opportunities against the Vikings. For the season, they’re 24th in the league with a conversion rate of 37 percent. Over the previous 10 seasons, the Packers were fifth with a conversion rate of 43.4 percent.“If our third down improves, we’re clearly a touchdown or so better per game Blake Martinez Color Rush Jersey ,” McCarthy said.That touchdown per game would make a huge difference for a team that has lost games at the Rams, Seahawks and Vikings over the past month by a combined 12 points.Beyond the third-down woes, McCarthy has injury concerns.Four starters 鈥?cornerbacks Kevin King (hamstring) and Bashaud Breeland (groin), defensive tackle Mike Daniels (foot) and receiver Randall Cobb (hamstring) 鈥?were inactive on Sunday night. Left tackle David Bakhtiari (knee), left guard Lane Taylor (quad) and safety Kentrell Brice (ankle, concussion) were unable to finish the game.McCarthy cut some of the meetings out of Monday’s schedule and the team won’t practice in pads on Thursday.“I think these Sunday night games are taxing, no doubt,” he said. “Obviously, the game last night was a very physical football game. We have a lot of guys that are beat up. There’s going to be extra time sorting through exactly what we need to get done over the next 48 hours to really set our plan for Wednesday.”
