Packers booed at Lambeau after first back-to-back losses for LaFleur

GREEN BAY – The boos were as cold as the temperature on this mid-October afternoon inside Lambeau Field. They chased the Green Bay Packers offense off the field more than once, to the sideline where it could do no more damage, until the fans did the unthinkable with 9 minutes left in the fourth quarter.

That’s when the exodus from Lambeau Field’s bleacher bowl began. The Packers were only two touchdowns behind, significant but not insurmountable in the Aaron Rodgers era. It didn’t matter. These fans had seen enough.

BOX SCORE:Jets 27, Packers 10

For the first time since Matt LaFleur was hired as head coach in 2019, the Packers lost on consecutive weeks. They followed their trip to London with a 27-10 home loss to the New York Jets, calling into question how low their ceiling is this season.

The loss dropped the Packers to 3-3 this season.

Here are some quick observations:

Offensive line needs a shuffle

The Packers have no choice but to reconsider how they configure their offensive line. The Jets brutalized Aaron Rodgers on Sunday, hitting him eight times with four sacks. The run game wasn’t much better with Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon combining for 60 yards on 19 carries, a 3.1-yard average. There was improvement on the ground as the game progressed, but the Packers running back tandem was stuffed early, perhaps dissuading LaFleur from riding Jones and Dillon throughout. The Jets have a stout defensive front, but they made the Packers offense look dysfunctional for much of Sunday’s game.
