The last time Green Bay was shutout at Lambeau Field was November 19, 2006. On that day, the New England Patriots, just like the Chicago Bears had done earlier that season, shutout the Packers 26-0. It was Coach mike McCarthy’s first year as head coach of the Packers. It did not happen again until Sunday against the Ravens in a 23-0 ugly loss at home.
The Packers turned the ball over each of their first three possessions at Lambeau Field Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. Green Bay’s defense was somehow able to hold the Ravens to just six first half points and kept the team in the game. Brett Hundley threw an interception in the end zone on the opening drive of the game. He coughed it up again on the next drive on an errant thrown on the 36-yard line.
The second half opened with a lightening quick touchdown drive for Baltimore. The Ravens took a 13-0 lead on a 4-play, 59-yard drive that took just 1:52 off the clock. Joe Flaco capped the drive off with a 21-yard touchdown pass to Mike Wallace.
Hundley would lose a fumble and throw another interception late in the game. Devante Mays fumbled twice and lost one of them. The five total turnovers were the story of the game. The loss drops Green Bay to (5-5). They will travel to Pittsburgh for Sunday Night Football against the Steelers this week.
