Packers Looking For Answers After Loss

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The Green Bay Packers were looking for answers all over in the wake of a dispiriting 30-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
Their once powerful offense looks nothing like it did in 2011. Their defense is starting to look entirely too much like last year's group.
And their otherwise solid special teams is asking why its previously reliable, strong-legged kicker Mason Crosby missed a pair of 50-yard field goals - including a potential tying 51-yarder with 3 seconds left in the game - after being virtually automatic before Sunday.
It all adds up to a 2-3 record, putting the Packers below .500 at this point in the season for the third time in coach Mike McCarthy's seven-year tenure.
