Flynn shines, Packers still fall


For the second time in as many weeks, Matt Flynn made one major mistake, for the second consecutive week it may have cost the team the game. His mistake was not the only one however, multiple plays could have changed the outcome of the game at different points but the "if only" theory doesn't work very well on the score sheet.


The first quarter of the game set the tone for what was going to be an excellent football game for the Green Bay Packers. An onside kick to open the game was recovered and put life into the offense that was held to just three points a week earlier in Detroit. Matt Flynn had confidence and poise in the pocket, looking much more fluent in his first start since his bowl game at LSU. Flynn took the opening drive into Patriot territory before they defense turned up the heat and forced a sack and a rushed throw on second and third downs. The Packers settled for three points and a lead in a game that many wondered if it was worth playing because of the directions the respective teams had been heading.
