For a few early drives on Sunday night in Minneapolis
  • ,
    it seemed that Mike McCarthy had taken recent criticism to heart and that Aaron
    Rodgers had found his mojo again. The Green Bay Packers’ offense looked crisp,
    creative, and maybe even clever. Rodgers was throwing the ball in rhythm and the
    team had 14 points through three series.And then it all fell apart. Again.For
    the second straight game, the Packers scored just three points after halftime.
    For the second straight game, a fourth-down decision by McCarthy burned the
    team. And for the seventh time this season, Rodgers completed less than 62
    percent of his pass attempts. He also set a season-low mark in passing yards,
    managing just 198 on the day, and it was the first time all season that the
    Packers had been held under 340 yards of total offense Quinten Rollins
    , as the team finished with just 254 total.Over a span of
    six possessions after the Vikings tied the game at 14, the Packers managed just
    four first downs, going three-and-out three times. All that led to a nearly
    ten-minute time of possession deficit.By most measures, this was the worst
    offensive performance of the year for this team in the Packers’ worst season (so
    far, at least) since Rodgers’ first year as a starter. And although the team
    still has a theoretical chance to make the postseason, there are few if any
    reasons for hope.Thus, today’s Curds are a somber batch, and we get our first

    Green Bay Packers fans in the past few decades, but the 2018 team is no ordinary
    Packers squad. After being eliminated from the postseason by the Chicago Bears
    last Sunday, the results of the team’s final two games will dictate nothing more
    than draft position and two opponents for the 2019 schedule. Aaron Rodgers is
    playing, however. The two-time MVP views these final games as an opportunity to
    exercise his leadership abilities, suiting up and leading by example. Meanwhile,
    Davante Adams has his sights on some Packers single-season records. After
    hitting exactly 100 receptions after last week’s game, he is 12 catches short of
    the team’s single-season record, which Sterling Sharpe set in 1993. Adams is
    also 204 yards short of Jordy Nelson’s record of 1 Justin Vogel
    ,519, set back in Adams’ rookie year of 2014. Meanwhile, the
    New York Jets are also playing for nothing, sitting at 4-10 on the season. Head
    coach Todd Bowles may join Mike McCarthy on the unemployment line after the year
    concludes, so he will likely be motivated to rally his troops in an effort to
    save his job.Join us here to see how today’s game at the Meadowlands
