The Packers’ defense has been solid this season, especially in the last two games. They’ve held opponents to a manageable score for their offense and kept the teams in games.
However, they need to go from solid to spectacular if they want to have a significant impact on this team. One area they can do that is by forcing more turnovers.
Green Bay ranks second-to-last in takeaways this season and hasn’t had many big plays. That makes sense, considering the lack of pressure their front seven has generated on quarterbacks in the last two games, Jaire Alexander’s absence this season, and the lack of playmakers at the safety position. However, they must find a way to turn that around and give their offensive favorable field position.
