Packers season over after embarrassing loss to Cardinals

Packers season over after embarrassing loss to Cardinals

"The 2018 season has not lived up to the expectations and standards of the Green Bay Packers", team president Mark Murphy said in a statement.

After almost 13 seasons with the team, the Packers have parted ways with Mike McCarthy. While he acknowledges his National Football League debut was somewhat bittersweet considering the Packers' 20-17 loss to Arizona, he hopes to build upon the experience heading into these next four December games.

On third down, a problem all year, Green Bay failed on nine straight attempts at one point. We've had a number of opportunities. However, given the Packers' lack of success and the lofty line, it's the Cardinals who are actually getting 51% of bets and almost 65% of dollars (check out the updated betting data here). At least last Sunday at Minnesota, Rodgers only missed Adams by an inch or two on an overthrown touchdown.

"This was a game that we have won in the past, expected to win", said Rodgers, who threw for 233 yards on 31 completions. Dome team, [34] degrees, snow, wind, it's playing right into our hands and we just came out flat.

"It was different. I had to get a feel for it at first, but it was fun", Alexander said. Green Bay has talented weapons on offense, a solid offensive line, and an equally talented defense. That could've ended a streak of eight straight failures on third down.

It looked like Edmonds scored on the play before the touchdown - the run was ruled a score on the field - but was overturned on replay.

This year, Rodgers hurt his left knee in the season opener, though he is feeling better now.

And Rodgers couldn't win it.

Crosby pushed his kick wide right, with the flags atop Lambeau Field blowing in toward the field at the time of the kick. "We have to know that if something happens on the left or right side we have to go in. We got enough reps during the week, so I didn't think it was that bad of a transition". He could set a personal record against the Cardinals with 35 pass attempts without an interception.
