The Green Bay Packers should have had a chance to beat the Los Angeles Rams this past weekend, in a game that would have went a long way in their chances of making the playoffs. However, Ty Montgomery decided to try and be the hero, fumbling the kick return, and ending the Packers chances at a stellar road victory against the only undefeated team left in football.
As it stands now, the Packers would be left out of the playoffs if the season ended tomorrow, which is incredible considering they have one of the best quarterbacks in football in Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers continues to get healthier each week, and before all is said and done, the Packers should be able to at least secure a Wild Card spot.
During the 2019 NFL Draft, the Packers have two first round draft picks, and they should use both to bolster the defense. One area where they need help is along the defensive line, and drafting a solid edge rusher like Jachai Polite from Florida would go a long way in helping this team do a better job at getting after the quarterback.
There is a lot of football left, and if Rodgers is actually given the chance to win the game, he can certainly beat any team in the NFL. This Packers team is loaded on offense with Rodgers under center, but the defense has been an Achilles Heel, and the hope is the draft capital in 2019 can help them get better.
