Ravens at Packers

Last Sunday, we spent the day at Lambeau Field for the Ravens vs. Packers game. Bolstered by a fairly good performance and a victory the week before in Chicago, we were expecting to maybe see a good game. The weather, while 28° at kickoff, was quite pleasant if you happened to be sitting in the sunlight as we were.

The view from the upper concourse while we enjoyed a bratwurst in the hour prior to the start of the game.

Unfortunately, the game was a real stinker. The Packers could not get into the end zone. Not into our north end zone (seen here), nor the south end zone, seen in the shady distance.

The defense kept the Ravens at 16 points (until the ridiculous interception late in the game). If you keep the other team at 16 points, you should be able to win a lot of games.

The crowd really wanted to get into the game, but there was very little on the field to generate excitement. There were several periods where the Packers were "booed" on their home turf. Losing has not been a way of life in Green Bay for a long time. The older fans, like us, remember the 70’s and 80’s too well.

Still, the on-field performance has not caused fans to stay away. The attendance was 77,945, but word is that ticket prices are going down. Not as bad as in Cleveland, though, where you can snare a ticket for the Dec. 10 Packers vs. Browns game for as little as $6.

A break in the action, most likely a television time-out.

The Packers on offense, deep in their own territory.

RB Jamaal Williams (#30) awaits a turn with the ball inside his own end zone.

QB Brett Hundley (#7) throws from his goal line. This may or may not be the late interception that led to a final Baltimore touchdown.

A semi-panoramic view from the Packerville, U.S.A. seats in Section 102.

Something that has become common since the Detroit Monday Night game... many empty seats before the game is over.

The final score of what ranks as one of the worst displays of football we’ve seen in a while. This is the first time the Packers were shut out since the Patriots beat them 35-0, also at home, in 2006. And we were at both of those games. We hope to see a better game against Tampa Bay on December 3rd.
