Can The Packers’ Run Defense Be Fixed?

The Packers’ run defense was about as bad as it has been over the past few decades last weekend. Maybe it wasn’t as bad as it was in various playoff games against the 49ers where Colin Kaepernick or Raheem Mostert sprinting down the field will be burned into my brain forever, but those games are the only ones I can remember that were worse.

The Saints used the run to control the game. They dominated the Packers in time of possession. Their o-line blew the Packers’ d-line off the ball almost every play. Jameis Winston became the first QB in history to have five pass touchdowns and under 150 passing yards.
