making his sixth start of the season, had moved into the starting spot at right tackle after Bryan Bulaga’s season-ending knee injury. Jason Spriggs, who was activated off injured reserve on Saturday,McCray,Authentic John Elway Jersey, finished the game at right tackle.

“He’s one of those guys that’s been phenomenal this yearAuthentic Trevor Siemian Jersey,” linebacker Blake Martinez said. “He’s one of our impact players and makes a lot of plays. Huge leader. He was the captain today and gave a speech before the game. He’s definitely a big component to our defense.”

“There’s no reason we should have zero points whoever we’re playing. I don't care if it's the '86 Bears. I don't even know who played on the '86 Bears,Authentic Barry Sanders Jersey>, we've got the years, we've got the smarts, but we should score on them. We've got playmakers in here, we've got wisdom, we've got everything in here. We've got to do better than that.”

“Obviously,” receiver Jordy Nelson said. “It is a momentum-breaker, that makes a difference, (if) you put points on the boardAuthentic Cole Beasley Jersey,'Authentic Sean Lee Jersey but I think we were still productive even come second drive. So it’s just,we’ve got to be consistent.”

Fackrell factor: Second-year linebacker Kyler Fackrell had his most productive game of the seasonwomens John Elway Jersey, tying his career high for tackles (five) with two for a loss and his first sack of the season.

” said Fackrell, a third-round pick a year ago. “That’s probably the best overall game I’ve played defensively. It doesn’t feel as good with the way we lost,,Authentic Von Miller Jersey,“I felt good about the way I played, but I think for myself I can take some confidence moving forward.”

New backs on the block: Without Aaron Jones (knee) and Ty Montgomery (ribs) out, the Packers turned to rookies Jamaal Williams and Devante Mays to carry the load at running back.womens Trevor Siemian Jersey
