Packers Give Steelers a Ride, Fall Short
Who saw that coming? Well, I kinda did when I made my prediction on this game. This game reminded me of the 2010 Green Bay Packers’ game when they rolled into New England with Matt Flynn.
Aaron Rodgers was concussed for that affair and the game before — a loss to the Detroit Lions — didn’t really matter. That was, we’re on a national stage, we are playing the class of the AFC and we are going to perform tonight.
So the Packers rolled into Pittsburgh to face the hot-as-hell Steelers on Sunday night. They rolled in there with backup quarterback Brett Hundley, who has experienced little success to date.
Something just said the Packers would give an effort. And an effort they did give.
We’ve been bitching about the offense of late, but that wasn’t the problem on this evening.
Brett Hundley was 17-of-26 for 245 and three touchdowns. No interceptions.
Did his job and then some. Who else did their job?
Supposedly, the Green Bay Packers’ defense. Two picks and a fumble recovery. Couple that with no turnovers by the Packers and this should be a won game, no?
The Packers’ defense couldn’t stop Antonio Brown or any Steelers’ receiver when it really mattered.
Brett Hundley is good boyos, can we get someone who can cover someone? Can the Green Bay Packers get a No. 1 cornerback?
