The Green Bay Packers Show ResilienceySubmitted: 09/15/2014

GREEN BAY - The Packers found themselves trailing 21-3 midway through the second quarter in their home opener against the Jets on Sunday.

"You never want to come out that flat," said Tramon Williams, Packers cornerback. "You never expect to come out that flat."


But they did. The Packers trailed 21-3 in the second. Then the defense started to tighten things up.

"You they made their plays," said Datone Jones. "We'll give them that but as a team we never got down. We played hard, fought hard the entire game and we made the key plays to get off the field and we won the game."

Tramon Williams had a big interception in the second quarter; he credits the team's communication for the comeback.

"It gets a little heated sometimes you've got to stick together," Williams said. "If you don't stick together we probably wouldn't have made that comeback. We stuck together, we all played it out."

Coach Mike McCarthy wasn't happy with his team's defending in the first half. But the effort reflects their determination.

"We were definitely in a spot," said Mike McCarthy, the Packers head coach. "The players stayed the course, that says a lot about their grit."

The Packers defense only allowed 3 points in the second half of the 31-24 victory, quite a different story from the first half.
