Green Bay Packers Fall To Buffalo Bills on Sunday Night Football

The Green Bay Packers (3-5) dropped a 27-17 decision on Sunday Night Football to the Buffalo Bills (6-1) at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, New York.

I’m going to be accused of being negative for this, and that’s fine, but I didn’t take many positives from this game for Green Bay. The only reason the score got “close” was because the Bills messaged around and the game was literally never in the balance. A long way to go for Green Bay.

The Green Bay defense was especially bad tonight before Buffalo took their foot off the gas. Rasul Douglas, Darnell Savage and Adrian Amos were brutally bad tonight. All three of them need to do Oklahoma drills this week that’s for darn sure.

The Bills are not a particularly “great” running team outside of Josh Allen, but they shredded the Packers defense with the run.

This is not the defense the Packers paid for. Matt LaFleur won’t do it mid-season, but Joe Barry needs to be relieved of his duties as soon as possible. The unit has too much talent, yet they continue to be terrible on a weekly basis.

With 12:46 left in the game and Green Bay trailing 27-10, the defense finally did something and intercepted Allen. However, the very next play from scrimmage, Aaron Rodgers’ pass got knocked up in the air and intercepted. That’s the opposite of complementary football.

The Green Bay offensive line tonight was awful, which certainly didn’t help the cause.

Aaron Jones (143 rushing yards) and AJ Dillon (54 rushing yards) had good games tonight…it’s amazing what can happen when your two best offensive weapons actually get touches, who would have thought?

Romeo Doubs made two great catches, one of them was the first touchdown of the game for Green Bay, and Samori Toure showed glimpses of what they can do.

Green Bay did get royally screwed out of a touchdown when Robert Tonyan was called for offensive pass interference on his touchdown catch, which ultimately the Packers had to settle for a field goal to make it 24-10 with 10:24 left in the 3rd quarter.

If the defensive back is holding the guy he is defending, the offensive guy should have the right to get his hands off him. Just a flat out brutal call by the officials.

That garbage OPI call cost Green Bay four points. Green Bay went 0-for-2 on fourth down in plus territory, which potentially costs them six points.

Green Bay lost by 10. Now I’m not great at math but…

Can the NFL flex the Packers at Eagles game Thanksgiving weekend out of SNF? We don’t need to continue to be embarrassed on national TV.

Up Next:

The Green Bay Packers will travel to Detroit, Michigan to play the Detroit Lions (1-6) at Ford Field on Sunday, November 6th. Kickoff is scheduled for 12:00 p.m. (CDT).

I’m extremely interested to see where Vegas will have the line for this game.
