Packers vs. 49ers: Previewing MNF clash with Niners Wire
/ Packers

By Zach Kruse

The Green Bay Packers (2-2-1) will attempt to get back on track in Week 6 by welcoming the San Francisco 49ers (1-4) to Lambeau Field for a primetime clash on Monday night.

The 49ers have lost three straight games and are without quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 3.

To preview the matchup, Packers Wire asked Kyle Madson, the managing editor of Niners Wire, five questions about the 49ers.

Here’s the exchange:

49ers Wire: He’s actually been a little better than I anticipated. His issues with arm strength and decision-making are still there, but overall he’s done a nice job. The glaring issue for him, and the reason they’re 0-2 with him under center, is his six turnovers in two games. Not all of them are his fault, but there have been some avoidable ones as well. He’s inexperienced and it shows up in the worst ways. Overall it’s hard to be upset with his performance given that he’s not the team’s starting quarterback.
