Green Bay losing streak hits five with 15-9 defeat

GREEN BAY − Aaron Rodgers wanted to throw the ball. He wasn’t even off the podium in Buffalo last week, where the Green Bay Packers had finally discovered their run game against the NFL’s best run defense, and the quarterback made those feelings clear.

It isn’t necessarily selfish. Rodgers’ desire comes from a good place. No team in this league, where high-flying offenses thrive off the quarterback, can survive on the run game alone. The Packers had only their run game last week. It wasn’t close to enough.

The problem, proven once again in the Packers’ 15-9 loss Sunday at the woeful Detroit Lions, is their passing game isn’t close to enough either. And those issues might start with four-time MVP quarterback on the back end of his career.
