GREEN BAY, Wis. – The Green Bay Packers had momentum on their side. They had the weather on their side. They had the fans on their side.

None of those advantages meant a thing in a 27-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night. This was as simple as a good team beating a bad team. If the loss at the Detroit Lions was rock bottom, as quarterback Aaron Rodgers put it, then this loss went deeper than the rock to the magma-filled mantle.

“Extremely disappointed right now to put on a performance like that. I don’t even know what to say,” coach Matt LaFleur said with a look of disgust. “It was nothing like a few days ago, and that’s why you’re only as good as your last game and every time you step out on that field you’ve got to go out and do it.

“Give credit to the Titans. They came ready to play. They were obviously more physical, and they made a lot more plays that we made. And there was no consistency in terms of being complimentary offensively and defensively. Obviously, when we needed stops we couldn't get them, and then when we needed to score and we were getting stops, we couldn’t score. Didn’t take advantage of an interception, didn’t take advantage of the (punt) return to midfield. So, you can’t do that against good football teams and expect to win.”
