The problem with grading the defense this week is the same problem we had last week with grading the following units. Every single unit played extremely poorly in the first half, but stepped their game up in a major way to finish out the game.
The defensive line had the worst game of all the units. They failed to get much pressure on quarterback Tony Romo and were continuously pushed back when the Dallas Cowboys ran the ball.
In fact, had the Cowboys been committed to the run late in the game, it's likely that the Green Bay Packers wouldn't have won this game. The bright spot this week was from the youngsters Daniels, Jones and Boyd. They combined for seven tackles and one-and-a-half sacks.
There is definitely room for improvement following Sunday's game, but this group has a strong second half to build upon moving forward.
Final Grade: C+
