Packers' injuries offer winnable Week 11 matchup for Baltimore Ravens

Share

The Green Bay Packers ground game is averaging 105.4 yards per contest, and Aaron Jones leads the way with 370 yards and three touchdowns.

Not only did quarterback Brett Hundley rally his Green Bay Packers team late in the game to earn the first victory in his starting tenure in place of Aaron Rodgers, he did it as a member of the running wounded.

Highlighting that second half were two big-time completions to Davante Adams. Then with the Packers trying to run out the clock and facing a third-and-10 from their 35 he hit Adams for a 42-yard gain. Hundley, on the move, made a great front-pylon throw.

Williams came through yet again on one of the Packers' subsequent drives, culminating in the aforementioned Hundley-to-Adams touchdown. The Green Bay Packers have won six of their last eight home games. Hundley was likely told he could take that chance downfield since an interception would essentially serve as a punt.

Teams continue to throw at Kyle Fuller.

As a general rule, it's irresponsible to make broad proclamations about a team based on one game, but in this case, it's appropriate to make an exception: Fox's job has got to be in jeopardy after Sunday's pitiful performance.

The QB-movement tactics that Mike McCarthy installed for Hundley, such as read-options and various bootlegs, never became a foundational piece to Green Bay's post-Rodgers offense, in part because Hundley did not consistently shine here. "We detailed our work a lot this week and it paid off". The defense held the Bears to just 55 yards rushing and 323 total yards. They bottled up the Bears' ground game too, as their running backs, who rank sixth in the National Football League in rushing yards, churned out just 55 yards. Over the years McCarthy has used two-back sets to stabilize his offense, especially in November and December.

We will update you on the score of the game as it goes on. Sunday, he didn't make the Packers pay. At Chicago, the opposing quarterback was rookie Mitchell Trubisky. Defensive coordinator Dom Capers loves to play this way but toggles in and out of aggressive play-calling each week, depending on the opponent.

The Baltimore Ravens need a win here after losing five of their last seven games to get back to a.500 record. Expect to see more of the creative, attack-minded Capers, with the intent being to steal possessions and swing field position. On Sunday, the Bears converted only 4 of 14 on third downs, including 0 of 4 in the second half.
