Major changes in Green Bay's roster left Packers fan's with very limited expectations for the coming season. But the offense over performed expectations and the Packers were able to pull out a 23-20 overtime victory over the Tennessee Titans at Lambeau Field Sat night.
HB Jackie Moon: 98 yards rushing.
Mason Crosby: 3-3 on fg's including the game winner in overtime
Brad Shields: 4 catches for 72 yards 1 TD and the 42 yard leaping sideline grab that put us into FG range in overtime.
LOLB Steve Sherry: 72ovr LB generated 6 tackles with 1 TFL
Gave up 174 yards rushing. 1 demoralizing run in which their HB Rawls busted through a quarter D, broke several tackles and took it to the house for an 80 yard run.
Gave up 1 long pass for a TD to Jermaine Jones.
Very close game throughout. Was a bit surprised that my running game was as effective as it was. Moon appears to still have some gas left in the tank. Only 3 drops which, for my WR's is also pretty good. Will have to find a way to work my TE's into the gameplan more. Defense played ok, not great. Gave up WAY too much rushing yardage but that doesnt concern me as long aas its between the 20's. Oline, consisting of mostly 70's ovr guys got me 135 yards rushing so very happy with that.
On to the surprising Bucs next week. After seeing them beat the Panthers, lets just say im concerned. :)
