The Packers scored 48 touchdowns on their 60 trips to the red zone last season, an NFL-leading 80.0% success rate.
This season (11 out of 20) that number has dropped to 55.0%, the sixth lowest point in the league.
“You try to come up with a better plan,” LaFleur said. “And better play. I’m not as worried, I would say, about our red zone. I think we’ll be fine. … We’re five games into this thing and of course we’ve had a year previously set a standard for what it should look like and we haven’t lived up to that standard, and it falls on me Come to the fore. It’s the same, and we’re going to continue working on it, but I’m not going. Still panic over it.”
Adams, as impressive as he has been this season, has only had two touchdown receptions. Good News? He had only two to five games last season – he missed two games with an injury – and finished the season with 18 scores.
What about bob?
Tight end Robert Tonian has had a slow start this season. After catching 52 passes for 586 yards and 11 touchdowns, Tonin has scored nine catches for 82 yards and one through five games in a year.
Injuries along the offensive line have forced Tonin to take on a different role this season. He is further maneuvering on the line of scuffle, delaying the start of his routes.
