Matt LaFleur Was Asked If Packers Will Make Defensive Coordinator Change

The Green Bay Packers lost their fourth game in a row on Sunday Night Football, and some around the franchise are starting to get a little bit restless.

The day after his team's 27-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur was asked whether he would consider firing defensive coordinator Joe Barry.

LaFleur unequivocally stood by Barry.

"Packers coach Matt LaFleur is not making a defensive coordinator change," Rob Demovsky of ESPN reported. 'Oh no, absolutely not.'"

The Bills scored points on five of their first six possessions against the Packers to effectively put the game out of reach. 

Still, the Packers actually held the Bills' second-best offense in the league below its season scoring average.

The Packers rank 16th in the NFL in scoring defense, holding opponents to 21.6 points per game.

It would be easy to argue that it has actually been the Green Bay offense, led by quarterback Aaron Rodgers, that has had more to do with the team's struggles this season. The Packers are averaging just 17.5 points per game during their current losing streak.

The Packers will look to get both sides of the ball back on track when they face the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
