Packers need more from WRs with Jennings out
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — In theory, the Green Bay Packers’ group of receivers is deep and talented enough to make up for the loss of one player, even one as good as Greg Jennings.
It just didn’t look that way in Sunday’s loss at Kansas City.
Tight end Jermichael Finley dropped passes, and he wasn’t the only player who struggled to hold onto the ball. Jordy Nelson was relatively quiet after a couple of head-scratching offensive pass interference calls went against him. And when Aaron Rodgers needed to make big plays at the end of the game, nobody was open.
The Packers have a chance to wrap up home field advantage in the NFC with a victory over Chicago on Sunday night, but they’ll likely need a better performance from their receivers.
