GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers are looking for some answers.
The offense looks nothing like it did in 2011. Their defense looks entirely too much like last year's group. And kicker Mason Crosby missed a pair of 50-yard field goals Sunday in a dispiriting 30-27 loss at Indianapolis.
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. In 2006, the team ended the year at 8-8. In 2008, the Packers ended up 6-10.
Injuries haven't helped. Wide receiver Greg Jennings who missed Sunday's loss with a groin injury and running back Cedric Benson left the game with a sprained foot.
The next game is at Houston on Sunday night.
