3 Positives and 3 Negatives from the Packers Loss on Thursday Night Football

Good: Randall Cobb
Coming off injured reserve after missing the last four games Randall Cobb showed he can still contribute massively to the Packers offense with 5 catches for 70 yards and a fumble recovery.

Bad: Time of possession battle
The key deciding factor on Thursday night football was simply the Packers losing the time of possession battle particularly in the first half having possession of the ball a total of 3 times which simply isn’t enough.

Good: Christian Watson
Watson put yet another good performance last night adding another 2 receiving touchdowns bringing his tally to five on the year.

The North Dakota state rookie had 0 touchdown catches prior to last Sunday but now leads all rookie receivers in that category.

Bad: Joe Barrys defensive schemes
Once again the Packers defense continued to be incredibly frustrating to watch by doing the same thing over and over again, getting the Titans to third down and then giving up chunk plays on what seemed like every single third down.

Good: Not having Amari Rodgers on punt returns
One area that showed drastic improvement this game was in the punt return area.

After Amari Rodgers was cut from the team earlier in week return duties were handed over to Keisean Nixon who had an impressive 108 yards on 5 returns averaging 21.6 yards per return.

Bad: Not capitalising on opportunities late in the 4th
In truth the Packers defense gave the offense plenty of opportunities to get right back in the game however they simply could not convert any of them.

Rasoul Douglas’ late interception gave the team genuine hope to make it a one score game however the offence went three out on numerous occasions with Rodgers missing a wide open Sammy Watkins and then throwing the ball too high for Lazard to catch it.
