Analyzing the Packer Second Half Offensive Struggles

The Green Bay Packers in week three picked up a huge win on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Packers got off to a hot start going up 14 to 3 in the first half. They looked unstoppable in all three phases of the game until the offense got to the red zone at the end of the first half and fumbled on the one yard line. After this, the Packers offense didn’t do anything the rest of the game. This has happened in the past two games now for this offense.

In order for the Packers to be able to win the Super Bowl this year, this offense needs to show up for the entire game. In the past two games against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Chicago Bears, the Packers have 38 points in the first half. It’s a completely different story in the second half. In those two games combined, they only have three points in the second half. In both games, one bad thing happened for the offense and then they couldn’t do anything after it. Against the Bears, the Packers fumbled on their first drive of the second half and were only able to score three points after the turnover. Against the Buccaneers, Aaron Jones fumbled on the one yard line. The Packers offense never scored again after that turnover. They were playing a perfect game offensively until that turnover and were never able to really move past it. The Packers offense has to be able to have something go wrong and be able to move on from it. They can’t just keep relying on the defense to play a perfect game.

The Packers on offense have plenty of talent to be a really good unit. They are finally starting to get healthy as well. David Bakhtiari is finally back and looked very good in the limited amount of snaps he got. Elgton Jenkins played in his second game after coming back from an ACL injury and looked a lot better this week. The offensive line is starting to get healthy which is huge if this offense wants to be successful. One player that stood out in this game was Romeo Doubs. Doubs had a great game hauling in eight catches on eight targets for 73 yards and a touchdown. He looked comfortable and was really clicking with Aaron Rodgers. This offense really needed it in this game with Christian Watson and Sammy Watkins both out. Doubs took advantage of his opportunity and really shined. This is a good sign going forward for this offense.

The Packers have a very favorable schedule for the next four games. They play the New England Patriots this week with quarterback Mac Jones likely out with an injured ankle. The Packers then travel to London to take on the New York Giants and then come back to Green Bay to take on the New York Jets. They then travel to Washington to take on the Commanders before facing the best team they will play all season in the Buffalo Bills. The next four games are big games for the Packers. They will be playing teams that they are going to be favored against and will give the offense a chance to find some success. The offense has shown flashes of what they can be and all they need to do is do it for four quarters and not just two.
