What to Fix in Green Bay After NFC Championship Loss | Ticket King

Ticket King Packers Tickets
The Green Bay Packers went quietly into the night Sunday, losing 37-20 to the San Francisco 49ers. Still, it was an amazing season for the Packers, as they were expected to win seven games as coach and quarterback argued their way through the season. Instead, they won 13 games, were the two seed in the NFC, and reached the NFC Championship game. Let’s look at what the Packers need to fix for 2020.  
1. The Rush defense – What doomed the Packers all season and sunk them in the NFC Championship game was the rush defense. The pass rush was greatly improved by the Smith boys, and the pass defense was well improved also. But their rush defense needs work. Re-signing Blake Martinez will help, but they need to add an inside linebacker next to him, as well as a big body up front to help Kenny Clark stop the run. 
2. Rebuild the wide receiver unit behind Davante Adams- Yes, Davante Adams is about as good as it gets in the NFL right now. But, the depth behind him is not good at the moment. Marques Valdez-Scantling has really regressed in year two. It may be time to get rid of them all and start from zero. Possibly add two receivers in the draft early, and another one in free agency.
3. Add another young tight end- The Packers have been kicking the can down the road at the tight end position ever since the spinal injury that ended the career of JerMichael Finley. That needs to end. Marcedes Lewis may have played his last NFL game Sunday night, and Jimmy Graham may have as well. If not, it release Graham and do not re-sign Lewis. Robert Tonyan is a decent player and rookie Jace Sternberger’s first season was stunted by injuries. He could become something more. Add two tight ends in the draft, one early, and one late.
4. Backup quarterback position – The Packers are trusting Rodgers to stick with the team for the forseeable future, but might do well to pick up a veteran quarterback as backup. When the time comes for Rodgers to fade out, that’s when the team should draft a future starter. For now, pick up a trusted vet.
5. Safety depth- The Packers starting safeties are good, and Raven Greene could still be a solid player for them who covers tight ends and running backs, but the Packers need to add more safety depth, possibly two in the draft. One in the mid-rounds, and one in the later rounds.

Ticket King Green Bay | Wild Card Weekend Predictions

Packers Tickets
Ticket King Green Bay brings you our version of the “Wild Card Weekend Preview.”
The 2020 NFL Playoffs are upon us. Let’s dive right in and preview Wild Card Weekend.  We tried to figure out how or why each team will or will not win their game. We hope you enjoy our educated guesses. 
AFC
(3)Patriots vs. (6)Titans
Why the Titans will win- The Titans will win because the Patriots defense can’t stop Derek Henery. Ryan Tannehill continues his impressive play over the second half with a three-touchdown performance. The Patriots have been exposed this season, and for the first time in as long as we can remember will lose as playoff home game.
Why the Patriots will win- The Patriots will win because they have lulled everyone into a false sense of security. “Oh, the Patriots are dead now,” they all say. Well, the Patriots are about to come to life and show us that they are still the “Evil Empire.”
Final score: 34-24 Patriots.
(4)Texans vs. (5)Bills
Why the Bills will win- The Bills are back in the playoffs. This is the more legitimate team in almost two decades. That defense is for real, and the offense led by Josh Allen makes enough plays to pull off a tough playoff road victory.
Why the Texans will win- The Texans have one of the most dynamic young quarterbacks in the game in DeShaun Watson. He will terrorize the Bills defense with his ability to run and pass. Carlos Hyde rushes for 120 yards, and the Texans advance to Baltimore.
Final Score: 31-20 Texans
NFC
(3)Saints vs. (6)Vikings
Why the Vikings will win- It’s going to take a miracle for the boys in purple to pull this one off, and they do just that. Kirk Cousinshas the game of his life, throwing for four touchdown passes. Dalvin Cook returns for injury to add 115 yards and a pair of touchdowns of his own on the ground.
Why the Saints will win- Ladies and gentlemen, the Saints are not just winning. They are pillaging, plundering, and taking no prisoners. They are firing on all cylinders and they roll on into round two, one more win away from an epic rematch with the 49ers.
Final Score: 45-24 Saints, with a late junk touchdown by the Vikings. As I said, it’s going to take a miracle for the Vikings to pull this one off.
(4)Eagles vs. (5) Seahawks
Why the Seahawks will win- Right now Seattle is down for the count. Their top two running backs on the depth chart right now weren’t on the roster all season, and they are down to four healthy receivers. But there’s something that smells of playoff run about this team. I don’t know what it is, all I know is I can smell it.
Why the Eagles will win- The suddenly hot Eagles won the NFC East at the buzzer from the Cowboys, and now enter the playoffs on a little bit of a streak. The playoffs are where Doug Pederson is making his magic work, and he does it yet again. 
Final Score: 31-24 Eagles
