Packers know red zone offense must improve

Posted: Updated:
Green Bay, WI (WXOW) -

The Green Bay Packers will begin preparations for its second preseason game Wednesday.

The offense this season is expected to produce plenty of points, especially with a stacked receiving core. That wasn't the case in the preseason-opener against the New England Patriots though, as the starting offensive unit failed to convert in the red zone.

"We got to put points on the board when we get down there," wide receiver Randall Cobb said. "So of course we still got things that we got to work on but to come out and get 33 plays in the first quarter that was huge for us offensively."

"We didn't score any touchdowns and we were in the red zone twice so I think that's the big part," Jordy Nelson said. "We had some opportunities and we just didn't capitalize on those so again we need to understand and I think everyone does when we get those chances, we got to make the most of them. Touchdowns are obviously a bigger impact on the game than a field goal and we definitely need to get points on the board and make them touchdowns."

Green Bay takes on Pittsburgh on Sunday. You can see the game on WXOW beginning at 11:30.
