Mike McCarthy: 'Green Bay Packers have not handled challenges'

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy believes that the team have not managed their challenges well in recent weeks.

Mike McCarthy has said that the Green Bay Packers have struggled to handle the challenges thrown their way in recent weeks.

The NFC North side have not won a game since starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers fractured his collarbone at the start of November.

The head coach told the team's website: "I'm not going to sit up here and make excuses. We had 20 missed tackles. I don't know how you think you're going to play good coverage football, on special teams or even run defense, when you have that many missed tackles.

"Disappointed, frustrated, whatever word you want to use, that's how I feel. We've been playing this way now for a number of weeks, and we have not handled the challenges that our opponents have put in front of us."

The Packers face the Atlanta Falcons this weekend.
