Packers almost out of receivers, still in the game

The Packers are running out of wide receivers, but they’re moving the ball — and they’re right in the game.

The Cardinals hold a 7-6 halftime lead. They got the game’s lone touchdown in the first quarter on a Carson Palmer pass to Michael Floyd.

It’s been about defense and ball control; the Packers have driven 17 plays on both of their field goal drives. Mason Crosby has made 20 straight postseason field goals.

Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was lost for the game to a chest injury suffered in the first quarter. With Cobb out, the Packers are down to three healthy wide receivers: James Jones, Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis. Davante Adams missed the game due to injury.

Aaron Rodgers is 16-of-26 for 121 yards. Abbrederis and Janis have four catches apiece.

Palmer is 8-of-14 for 74 yards.

    I guess the Cardinals aren’t “a far better team” after all?

    Arizona has the worst crowd ever. I’ve heard louder high school games.

    Good game. Hanging tough. Defense is playing great. Too bad we have nothing but practice squad receivers remaining.

    Oh well. Next Man Up!
