The Packers moved the ball very well in the first half. Their offense was efficient; the defense was adequate.
Still, you hate to have two long drives end in field goals. Twice we had the ball on the one yard line and failed to score. (Denver was worse, fumbling the ball on the Packers’ 1.)
Penalties were also a problem. Two bad penalties on Atari Bigby gave Denver a big boost on its scoring drive and two Chad Clifton false starts contributed to the Packers’ inability to score deep in Denver territory.
Those mistakes are not fatal, but if we should lose, there will be a ton of talk about those Packers’ drives on Wisconsin talk radio.
