Matt LaFleur doesn’t blame Aaron Rodgers vs. Giants, other takeaways

GREEN BAY – The Green Bay Packers arrived home late Sunday night, after a long flight during which they had ample time to relive their 27-22 loss to the New York Giants in London.

Coach Matt LaFleur met with the local media Monday afternoon to recap the loss, what went wrong and what has to improve. Here are four of the biggest takeaways:

Not blaming Aaron Rodgers for lack of deep passing game

As long as teams are going to sell out on stopping the run and leave one safety in the middle of the field, LaFleur said the Packers are going to take their shots down the field in the passing game.

Against the Giants, they tried to do it more than a half-dozen times and they didn’t complete a single one, including three straight attempts with the game tied in the fourth quarter and the defense having just been on the field for more than 8 minutes. Numerous times, quarterback Aaron Rodgers was off with his throws, although LaFleur did not place all the blame at his feet.
