Coming fresh off a Super Bowl, the Packers were poised as a team that had the ability to make a second consecutive championship run.
They did not disappoint by finishing with a regular season record of 15-1.
But, the New York Giants' pass rush proved too much for the high powered Packers offense to handle, falling 37-20 in Lambeau Field, abruptly ending their chance at any kind of Super Bowl repeat.
Now, it's back to the drawing board for general manager Ted Thompson, who will look to correct a defense that ranked 32nd in the league and failed to pressure the quarterback when teams neutralized Clay Matthews with double and triple-teams.
If the Packers want to get back to the Super Bowl, they must address several key issues on both offense and defense.
