Familiar territory here. The Packers offense consists of mostly points contributed solely by Mason Crosby and despite penalties and defensive miscues, the Packers lead the Ravens, 6-0 in Baltimore. The storyline of the first half, however, are two injuries to the Packers passing game. Early in the game, James Jones was taken out of the game following a leg injury. Then, on a late first half drive, Denver Combined, both teams had 13 punts including one the camera blocked, but errant miscues led the Packers to attempt to pick up the ball, but fumbled it back to Baltimore for a first down. Baltimore proceeded to march downfield, but the Packers stuffed four consecutive rushes into the end zone, including a decisive fourth down - denying Baltimore the ball at the one yard line. The Ravens took over the ball after a Crosby miss at 44-yards, but Coach Harbaugh elected to keep playing with less than thirty seconds and the Packers sacked Flacco, allowing Crosby a redemption field goal to build to a 6-0 lead. We will monitor both injuries to Jones and Cobb. Missing either player for any time would be catastrophic to the Packers passing attack. Already, Rodgers passing game had been hampered today and Boykin has been limited in Jones' absence.
