As good as quarterback Matt Flynn was in the second half of last week's game, he looked way off this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Flynn finished the game with 232 passing yards, one touchdown and one interception. That interception was returned for a touchdown and put the Steelers up 10 points late in the third quarter.
Now, head coach Mike McCarthy did say it was his fault on that interception for not getting "enough reps in that footwork," via Paul Imig of Fox Sports, but it was still a pretty awful throw from Flynn.
However, where Flynn really struggled was with his accuracy and decision-making. Too many times he completely missed targets on easy throws.
Furthermore, Flynn overlooked a wide-open wide receiver in Jordy Nelson on the final play of the game. Had Flynn seen Nelson, this game would have gone into overtime, and the Packers would have had a chance to win.
The entire loss certainly doesn't fall on the shoulders of Flynn, but there is no doubt that he needed to play much, much better if the Packers were going to win this game.
