It’s amazing the Packers throw a lot of the same WR screens the Pats do but because their receivers are good athletes they work.

It also helps that opposing DBs have to play off somewhat because Green Bay (like most teams) has the threat of a deep ball. We don't have that, which makes all the close stuff harder to pull off.

A lot of it is that they have the kind of downfield threat that gives space. We have (had) a couple guys who are as good athletes as GB has (Douglas, Bourne), but we never have cushion because nobody respects the ability to go deep if you make a mistake playing up on the line

That's a rough sack.. bad enough to take a sack in the red zone, but a 10 yard sack to turn a 37 yard FG into 48 was bad.

Fake edit- didn't matter he made it.

The broadcast booth made the possibility of a FG seem impossible there. Dude boots a laser right down the middle.
