Aaron Rodgers explains why facing Bills may be exactly what Packers need

Aaron Rodgers thinks facing the Buffalo Bills may be exactly what the struggling Green Bay Packers need right now. On Sunday, the Packers suffered an upset 23-21 loss to the Washington Commanders. It was a third consecutive defeat for the Packers, who now stand at 3-4.

This week, the Packers are facing the Bills, who have just one loss and are considered among the top teams in the league. After the loss to the Commanders, Rodgers was asked if it was still plausible for the Packers to make the postseason.

"You're god damn right it does. I'm not worried about this squad. In fact, this might be the best thing for us. This week, nobody's going to give us a chance, going to Buffalo on 'Sunday Night Football,' with a chance to get exposed.

Shoot, this might be the best thing for us," Rodgers explained, per ESPN.

Rodgers blames 'too many mistakes' for the Packers struggles

"I think outside of those two guys, there's too many mental mistakes. I talked about simplification last week.

I don't really know where to go when it comes to that. There has to be something inside that has the accountability for performance where we're just having way too many detail mistakes. It's just not winning football," Rodgers said.

After the Packers' latest loss, team head coach Matt LaFleur was asked if Rodgers needs to play better in order for the team to turn the things around. LaFleur answered by stating that everyone needs to step up. "I think it takes everybody.

It takes everybody around him. You've got to have the protection in front of you to be able to hold up. You've got to have the guys making plays, too. I feel like we had a ton of drops. We had a lot of penalties that put us back behind the sticks," LaFleur said.
