The Packers have been no stranger to drama this season, and that trend continued on Monday night in Green Bay against a less than stellar 49ers team. Who would have thought a depleted San Francisco team would be able to go shot for shot with Green Bay at Lambeau on a Monday night?

In this week episode of which side did not pull their weight, it was the defense who was Swiss cheese especially in the run game. Thankfully Kevin King made the interception at the end of the game to seal the Packers victory. It is game like these I am actually a fan of, where there is very clear areas of improvement that need to be worked on but the Packers still get the win.


As for the offense, they did their part putting up 33 total points, but in similar fashion still struggled to convert in the red zone. Thankfully Mason Crosby decided to be Dr. Jekyll and not Mr. Hyde this week and made 4/4 of the field goals he attempted.

As for who is CCC’s Offensive Player for week 6? It is very cut and dry considering Aaron Jones did not get the touches he needed, but at least he lead the team in attempts and Mr. Rodgers had a minor issue of accuracy issues only going 25/46. Then it had to be the most reliable player all season and that’s Davante.


I like my Packers football like I like playing NBA Live 06 with the Phoenix Suns, I want to distribute the ball to as many people as possible, but with Cobb and Allison sidelined this is sort of a necessity for Green Bay to rely on Adams as much as they are.

Adams was a beast on Monday night posting some huge numbers. Adams like most weeks this season lead the team in receptions (10), with the next closest being half of that at 5 by Jimmy Graham, yards at 132 with an average of 13.2 per reception and touchdowns with a pair. Including his longest reception late in the 4th to set up to tie the game.

Followed up 3 plays later where big play Tae channels his inner Randy Moss and climbs the latter over Greg Mabin to tie the game.

Lastly which I think Davante is so underrated in is his ability to run those out routes at the end of the game, which he did for 9 yards to secure the field goal by Crosby. It always amazes me that they know its coming yet Adams always seems to get open and get those critical extra yards when the Pack need it most.

It is hard to say that the Packers beating a 1-5 49ers team is a huge win, but it is the way the won which is important. Getting young players experience in big moments is something that helps greatly in the playoffs and this was a big win to keep the Packers on track to the postseason. They will need all the help they can get especially having to face the Rams and Patriots on the road the next two games after the bye.
