Key Players: A.J. Hawk, Clay Matthews, Mike Neal, Brad Jones, Jamari Lattimore, Nick Perry
While the Green Bay Packers were probably excited to get Matthews back this week, you can bet they wanted a better performance from their All-Pro linebacker in Week 10. Simply put, Matthews wasn't extremely effective this game, recording only two total tackles.
Had Matthews been the worst performer this week, the Packers probably would have been just fine with the play of their linebackers. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. In fact, the only linebacker who had a decent game this week was Hawk, who came up with a number of big tackles again.
Until players like Neal and Perry can learn to get pressure on the quarterback, this unit is going to be a disappointment each and every week. Things may get better once Matthews returns to full strength, but this week the play was just bad.
