140922-news-now-mccarthy-300GREEN BAY — Three games in, the Packers are still looking to put it all together.

“We haven’ t put together a full game as far as offense, defense and special teams playing in winning fashion,” McCarthy said on Monday, a day after the 19-7 loss in Detroit. “That’s what we have to get to. We’re going into Week 4.”

The best stretch the Packers have had this season was the final 2 1/2 quarters of the Jets game in Week 2, but the slow start in the first quarter and a half almost cost them that win.

In Detroit, the offense put together one TD drive in the first quarter but didn’t score again. The defense played solidly for nearly three full quarters but got worn down.

“The last two series is where Detroit was able to bleed us too many yards at the end of the play,” McCarthy said. “That was the focus of correction today with the defense.”

McCarthy did not have any medical updates on Monday. LB Clay Matthews (groin) and CB Davon House (knee) were the injuries reported from Sunday’s game.
