Packers Are Unstoppable When They Remain In Character
The Green Bay Packers have been the NFL’s best team for a large part of the season. They showed just that this weekend against the Los Angeles Rams by staying true to their offensive plan.
On the daily Locked On Packers podcast, Peter Bukowski shared why the Packers were able to operate so successfully on offense. In his opinion, it’s the same reason Daniel Day-Lewis is such a good actor.
Bukowski: What I absolutely loved is everything that they (the Packers) did, they did in character. They did not say that the Rams do X, Y, and Z, so we are going to counter with this. They just played their game. They stuck with the RPOs. Devonte Adams said after the game that most of the runs were called runs. They felt like they had an advantage.
Aaron Jones said during the week that they felt like they could run on these guys and guess what, not only did they run on them, but they also dominated on the ground. Every third and short, it felt like Green Bay could pick it up because they could get two yards. They could get two yards on the ground, or three yards or four yards, at will. That is what they did. That is why Green Bay finished the game eight of 12 on third down because they were in so many advantageous third-down situations. You get something going a little bit on first down, you run, and you get four yards. Okay, now it is second and six and the whole playbook is open to you. You could throw it, you could run it and if you do run it, you are going to get four or five yards and now it is third and short and the whole playbook is open to you. The Packers stayed in-phase the entire game.
