The Green Bay Packers got off to a nice start in their first preseason game, building a solid foundation to grow upon until their first regular season. However, it’s just that–a start–and they need to continue to stack success to best prepare them for the challenges that lie ahead.
It’s unclear how head coach Matt LaFleur will approach the game and divvy out playing time to his starters. However, there are certain guys who will have all eyes upon them, regardless of the playing time distribution.
Without further ado, here are five offensive players who will be thrust into the spotlight for the Packers’ second preseason game on Saturday night against the New England Patriots.
Keep your eye on these key offensive players on the Green Bay Packers, who will be thrust into the offensive spotlight during their second preseason game.
Packers in Offensive Spotlight: Anders Carlson
Okay, I cheated here and included a special teams’ player. However, Anders Carlson adds points to the board so I’m saying it’s good enough for the purposes of this list.
The spotlight on Carlson results from his performance in the previous game, a mix of promise and inconsistency.
He initially displayed his potential by successfully converting his first field goal attempt and nailing his first three extra points. However, the momentum shifted as he missed the mark on his final two extra-point attempts. This inconsistency has raised questions about his reliability.
With special teams playing a pivotal role in shaping the outcomes of games, the Packers will be closely monitoring Carlson’s performance in the upcoming preseason game. His ability to maintain composure, deliver under pressure, and showcase consistency will determine his standing within the team and his chances of securing a roster spot for the regular season. Packers are preaching patience at this juncture, but how long can they wait?
