Green Bay Packers drop head coach Mike McCarthy after third straight loss

"Yeah, I mean I'm not even thinking about that right now", Rodgers said when asked if he would have any role with general manager Brian Gutekunst or team president Mark Murphy about what direction they should go with the coaching staff. It was at Lambeau Field.

The Arizona Cardinals stunned the Green Bay Packers on Sunday with a 20-17 win at snowy Lambeau Field in what proved to be Mike McCarthy's last game as coach of the club.

It was the Packers' third-largest upset loss in the Super Bowl era and the worst since 1967, when they were 20-point favorites and lost to the Vikings. It was Green Bay's longest punt return of the year and helped set up the Packers' first scoring drive of the afternoon.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has voiced his frustrations over recent weeks and he has a lot to be frustrated about as the Packers suffered yet another loss on Sunday. They are playing for coach Steve Wilks... but it raises questions about the future of coach Mike McCarthy. "We were a little above halfway at halftime, and then toward the end of the game, I wasn't coming out". They won the NFC North six times during his tenure and earned playoff spots every year except 2006, 2017 and presumably 2018.

Wilder remains WBC heavyweight champion after draw with Fury
Fury seemed to take the result in good spirits though, especially knowing that a rematch is all but a certainty. The thrilling bout ended in a split draw, with Wilder retaining his WBC championship title for an eighth time .

Rodgers didn't magically renew missed connections with open receivers. "But we missed a number of opportunities throughout the game". "We're not executing the right way", Rodgers said.

Immediate returns: With Trevor Davis going back on IR Saturday with an aggravated hamstring injury, the Packers turned to rookie first-round pick Jaire Alexander on punt returns against the Cardinals.

The opening play of the fourth quarter was a flawless example of Green Bay's offensive struggles.

Rodgers has played well although he has had much better seasons. Rodgers found Cobb for a 36-yard completion on third-and-11, but the play was wiped out by a holding penalty on right tackle Jason Spriggs. Rodgers attempted 50 passes but completed only 31 of them for 233 yards and a touchdown.
