Immediate analysis: Packers can’t fix Special Teams’ errors despite strong defense at loss to Chiefs

Mason Crosby missed two field goals, one from 40 yards and the other from 37. What was his fault in this? It is unclear. Les was facing off after a hold of Corey Bjorkez on both attempts. The other was blocked because the security in the middle was terrible.

And then came the topper, a muffered punt that jumped off blocker Malik Taylor’s left foot and hit the Chiefs into Green Bay 10. Taylor was on the ground and had no idea that the ball was even with him. The biggest problem with the play was rookie Amari Rodgers’ failure to place the punt in first place. Rodgers called for a proper catch on the punt, but he may have misjudged it, so he dropped it and bounced the ball. Moments later, it hit Taylor.

In the second half too, Rodgers muffed a punt but managed to recover the loose ball.

You can probably guess what Green Bay’s special teams are going to get when I come out with the grades on Sunday.

The Packers held the Chiefs to 13 points, and that number would have been markedly lower if Green Bay special teams had not scored a field goal to Kansas City. Granted, that’s a Kansas City offense right now, but Green Bay lost rookie cornerback Eric Stokes (knee) before the game and got a nosebleed from Kenny Clarke (back) during the game.
