Packer’s Postseason Run Ends with Tough Loss to 49ers

Packer’s Postseason Run Ends with Tough Loss to 49ers.


The improbable postseason run for the Green Bay Packers is over. Anders Carlson missed a 41-yard field goal, Jordan Love threw two interceptions and the defense couldn’t get a stop when it mattered most.

Dropping interceptions that ended up in the hands of two defensive backs didn’t help either. In short, it’s hard to attribute a loss to just one player or phase of the game. As unfortunate as the loss was, 2023 Packers Aaron Rodgers answered more questions than it left unanswered in his first season post.

Love is arguably their franchise quarterback, their young pass rushers are one of the best groups in the NFL and running back Aaron Jones remains an elite weapon. Of course, the offense didn’t freeze overnight. It took a lot of hard work and they weren’t perfect for most of the regular season. However, their success came from the foundation laid in the offseason, when Love and Jones held workouts in California and invited everyone to participate.For the first time in years, the Packers were led by a quarterback who really wanted to work with his team in the offseason.

The result was that they formed a tight chemistry that no team in the Matt LaFleur era had, which is why this divisional round loss to the San Francisco 49ers hurts so much, at least according to Jones. Jones lost a big chunk. with injuries in the regular season (2023). As an unexpected but positive result, he entered the regular season and the final weeks of the season with fresh legs. In the loss to the 49ers, Jones completed 18 passes for 108 yards, his fifth straight 100-yard game.
