It is P-A-N-I-C time for the Green Bay Packers, as the New York Jets came to Lambeau field and laid a beat down on the reigning number one seed in the NFC. Ultimately, it ended with backups on the field as the Jets ran away with a 27-10 win.

Offensive spotlight: This was every Packers fan's exact worry after Davante Adams was traded away over the offseason. The Packers had no one making plays on the outside and even when they did, they couldn’t hang onto the ball. The Packers' skill players combined to drop five of 34 catchable passes on the day.

Defensive spotlight: Quinnen Williams was a nightmare for the Packers interior line. He finished with five pressures, including two sacks, and added three more stops in the run game. After he was much maligned his first three seasons with the Jets after being the No. 3 overall pick, Williams is finally living up to those lofty expectations.

Rookie spotlight: Sauce Gardner had a near-flawless performance as he continues to look nothing like a rookie from a Group-of-5 school. On six targets, Gardner allowed one catch for eight yards and forced three incompletions — the top shut down performance from a rookie corner all season.

Offensive line spotlight: The Packers interior offensive line got taken to the cleaners. Royce Newman continues to be a liability on the interior, allowing six pressures on 44 pass-blocking snaps with multiple miscommunications throughout the game. The second-year guard has now already allowed 18 pressures on the season.
