I think the most important thing is keeping him contained. They've done that pretty much while getting enough pressure on him. He only has four carries for 30 yards. That's a good day for any defense against him.
This will be a huge drive to start the half because Carolina will make adjustments and the Packers are going to have to deal with them. Forcing a stop would allow the Packers to double up in a sense.
No team has played at home in the Super Bowl.
I think it needs to keep working Aaron Jones and making Carolina think about the run game. The Panthers started lining seven guys up at the line and either blitzing or faking the blitz. I have a feeling they might back off in the 2nd half. That means the Packers will have to run it.
I've noticed that the last couple of games they've been a little low. I keep meaning to ask about it, but it hasn't caused any problems.
Rightly so. And converted 5 of 8 third downs.
He'd be a good fit for that offense, that's for sure.
OK, going to take a quick bathroom break. Be right back.
OK, let's get this thing started.
Really good question. Sometimes they don't settle down. But it seems like every team knows how to attack the Packers defense and it takes Capers and his staff time to adjust to it. Really good defenses make offenses adjust to them.
No, we haven't. Sprigg is doing a nice job protecting.
There's your first adjustment. I'm sure the Panthers saw a one-on-one opportunity based on their formation.
Hawkins with really good coverage against Olsen.
I think Newton is going to keep the ball more this half and try to make some plays with his leg.
Yet another neutral zone infraction. Poor discipline. That just gave Carolina a first down.
Burnett has to get off blocks better. He's letting a 5-9 guy block him down field.
Yeah, Newton's going to carry it a lot this half.
Yeah, they're going to have to really start focusing on Newton.
Packers get lucky and it's a block in the back that will make it first and 20.
