鈥?Battered by more injuries Nick Nelson Jersey Raiders , the Green Bay Packers left Lambeau Field for the final time this season with a whimper.They were shut out for the second time at home. The playoffs were already out of reach.The Packers are trying to win while also being forced to rely on young and inexperienced players in key roles. The result was a 16-0 loss Saturday night to the rival Minnesota Vikings.“I never felt more defeated, more embarrassed by a performance,” receiver Randall Cobb said. “Yeah, we had opportunities, and we didn’t connect when we did.”The Packers managed to hold a 239-236 edge in total yards. They were still blanked twice in a season for the first time since 2006.In its defense, the team fielded a lineup that often looked like one coach Mike McCarthy might send out for a game late in the preseason. The Packers had already been eliminated from playoff contention for the first time since 2008.Starting outside linebackers Clay Matthews (hamstring) and Nick Perry (ankle/shoulder) missed the game, along with cornerback Damarious Randall (hamstring).Brett Hundley was 17 of 40 for 130 yards with two interceptions in taking over at quarterback again for Aaron Rodgers, who returned to injured reserve this week after missing seven games earlier in the year with a collarbone injury.The Packers didn’t have leading receiver Davante Adams, who is in the concussion protocol Authentic Nyheim Hines Jersey , and then they lost wideout Jordy Nelson and tight end Richard Rodgers to shoulder injuries in the first half. Running back Aaron Jones (knee) also exited in the second quarter.“We had a lot of moving parts. You have to adjust. We had a lot of young guys get their first chance tonight,” McCarthy said.The hard turf at chilly Lambeau didn’t help, either, as some players had trouble with their footing early in the game. With the Packers unable to connect on medium-to-long range passes, the best plays came when Hundley broke free for big gains on the run.“We’re going to fight to the end. We kept it close, but we’ve got to make the situations 鈥?the situational football, we have to be better at,” left tackle David Bakhtiari said.The bright spots included receiver Michael Clark, a 6-foot-6 undrafted rookie free agent who had three catches for 36 yards. But with so many options sidelined Authentic Jaden Schwartz Jersey , Clark ended up getting targeted nine times, with many coming toward the end of the game.Justin McCray filled in admirably at right tackle after Jason Spriggs (knee) got hurt on the first play from scrimmage. McCray moved over a spot after starting at guard because Jahri Evans also missed the game with a knee injury.On defense, tackle Kenny Clark continued his late-season pass-rush surge with two sacks to give him 4 1/2 over the last four games.These are all things for the Packers to try to build on going into the season finale next week at Detroit.But Green Bay isn’t used to having its season end so early. All the Packers can do now is take a couple of days off to celebrate the holidays before returning for one last work week.“The game’s over with. Can’t do nothing about it now. Watch film, enjoy the holiday,” cornerback Davon House said. “Christmas is coming up, so we’ve got a lot of things to be thankful for. Then go and get ready for Detroit.” Prosecutors will not bring criminal charges against Buffalo Bills receiver Zay Jones after a naked, bloody argument with his brother in Los Angeles earlier this week.
Los Angeles prosecutors declined the case because of "insufficient evidence," district attorney's office spokesman Paul Eakins told The Associated Press on Thursday.
The 22-year-old Jones was arrested after officers were called to a disturbance in downtown Los Angeles, said police spokesman Luis Garcia. Jones was found "breaking glass doors and windows" and arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism Andy Dalton Jersey , Garcia said.
The arrest was first reported by TMZ, which posted a video showing a nude Zay Jones pushing his brother, Cayleb, in what appeared to be the hallway of an apartment building.
His agent, Zeke Sandhu, did not reply to text and voicemail messages. Sandhu also represents Cayleb Jones.
Cayleb Jones, a Minnesota Vikings receiver, on Wednesday also posted a note on his Twitter account, which read: "I am my brothers keeper."
His father Authentic Alexander Alexeyev Jersey , Robert Jones, posted a note on his Twitter account on Wednesday saying his son "is with me and his mom," while adding "he's going to be fine!"
The Bills had no immediate comment.
