Double team rate as an edge rusher (x) by pass rush win rate as an edge rusher (y). Robert Quinn, Myles Garrett, Jadeveon Clowney, DeMarcus Lawrence and Za'Darius Smith stand out for their ability to consistently win despite being double-teamed frequently. Pass rush win rate is the rate at which a defender beats his pass blocker within 2.5 seconds of the snap. It is an ESPN metric that uses NFL Next Gen Stats data.

The Packers aren't going to California early this time. They'll leave on Saturday for Sunday's game against the 49ers. They left on Friday before the loss at the Chargers. Matt LaFleur said his medical and training staffs told him the 2-hour time change doesn't affect players much and "coupled with how I felt about the Chargers trip" he decided to stick with a regular travel schedule.

The Packers had been bracing for the schedule change in Week 12, moving their game at the 49ers to prime time on Nov. 24. It's a game that could go a long way toward deciding playoff seeding‘s and first-round byes. However, it's a tough return trip from a West Coast night game.

Matt LaFleur said he doesn't regret going for it on the 1-yard line at the end of the first half yesterday but said: "I didn't like the play call; we didn't practice it for that situation." LaFleur put it squarely on himself but said he would still go for it.

Matt LaFleur has so many connections to the 49ers staff, not the least of which is his bother, Mike, who is their passing game coordinator. Matt said his wife, Bre, and their two sons are going out to San Fran early next week and staying with Mike's family in advance of the Nov. 24 game. "Hopefully she can do some recon," Matt jokes.

Matt LaFleur said this week's self-scout will have the offensive coaches break down the Packers' defense and vice versa. Sounds a lot like Mike McCarthy's "across-the-hall" exercise. "It gives a different perspective of how an opponent would like to attack one side of the ball," LaFleur said.
