One total was 181. Another was seven. The first was fantastic, the second not nearly enough.

The numbers represent the Packers’ rushing yards in Sunday’s loss to the Saints, and how many times Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Martellus Bennett got their hands on the football.

When it came to reviewing the offensive performance, that discrepancy was something Head Coach Mike McCarthy was focused on. The big first number should have led to a much bigger second number, but it didn’t, and the Packers must capitalize on that moving forward with new quarterback

Brett Hundley.

“When you call a football game, you have to get the ball to your playmakers, and we didn’t get that done yesterday,” McCarthy said on Monday just after dismissing his team for the bye week. “Jordy Nelson, Davante, Marty, Randall Cobb. Those guys have to touch the ball.

“How many times have we run for 180-plus yards? Not very often. You’re supposed to win those games. We have a lot to build off of.”

The building will continue with Hundley, who McCarthy remains confident will play better, particularly if rookie running back Aaron Jones can repeat his 17-carry, 131-yard rushing performance.

McCarthy laid out numerous factors behind Hundley’s struggles in going 12-of-25 for just 83 yards through the air.

Two failed third-and-ones in the first half, both coming on the heels of the defense’s two interceptions, contributed to Hundley only getting 50 snaps by game’s end. His “time clock and timing” were not sharp in the drop-back passing game. It was better off play-action, but McCarthy said there were a couple of protection breakdowns on those plays. Finding out on Friday that right tackle Bryan Bulaga would play but left guard Lane Taylor would not, the exact opposite of what the coaches planned for early in the week, led to some last-minute adjustments as well.

Those are the issues McCarthy is focused on, not the swirling suggestions or criticisms that the game plan was supposedly too conservative and didn’t allow Hundley the opportunity to make enough plays.

That said, there will be a process to Hundley’s in-game development.

“Was the game plan as big as it was the week before (with Aaron Rodgers)? Absolutely not,” McCarthy said. “And frankly, it’s going to get smaller. We need to be more creative.

“I feel the same way today as I did going into the week. I know this young man. I believe in him. That’s the direction we’re going.”

There’s plenty to clean up elsewhere, too. Four of the Packers’ eight accepted penalties occurred on special teams.

Also, because of players going in and out of the lineup during the game due to injuries, the Packers continue to have substitution problems on defense.

Once it cost them an early timeout, and another time only 10 defenders were on the field for Mark Ingram’s way-too-easy 12-yard TD run on third-and-1.

“It’s been excessive,” McCarthy said of the changing sub patterns and communication miscues. “Clearly not good enough.”

The loss of all-everything safety Morgan Burnett due to a hamstring injury the last two games hasn’t helped. If the defense has a glue guy from a communication and leadership standpoint, it’s Burnett, and defensive coordinator Dom Capers suggested his absence could be hindering the playmaking abilities of 2016 Pro Bowl safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in the back end as well.

At the same time, the play of tackling leader Blake Martinez and interception leader Damarious Randall, with three interceptions in the last three games, has been elevated. Rookie punter Justin Vogel had another field-flipping 60-yard boot.

The inconsistency in all phases can be maddening, but the most disheartening thing to McCarthy is seeing his team sharpen up some poor practice habits without getting the results in the game.

“We haven’t been very good the last two weeks. I told them before the Minnesota game they’re not practicing the right way, and this thing is going to bite us and we have to get on top of it,” McCarthy said. “We had a very good week of practice. We actually had our best week of practice. It happens. The Saints played a very good second half. We didn’t. So we’re not going to overreact to it, but we’re going to get better from it.

“We have to improve. You have to win your home games. To have opportunities and not take advantage of them, that second half of football, we have to be much, much better than that.”

Now we know why Jordy Nelson was not on the field for the last drive of Sunday’s comeback win in Dallas.

Nelson had a back injury.

He showed up on Wednesday’s injury report. But it didn’t keep the Green Bay Packers receiver off the practice field, and he doesn’t think it will be an issue Sunday at Minnesota.

Nelson did everything during the portion of practice that was open the media and was listed as a full participant on the post-practice report.

“I went through everything like normal [and] feel good,” Nelson said. “It’s nothing serious. Everything is good. Like I said, practicing all week and playing on Sunday.”

The NFL’s leader in touchdown catches (six) did not play after he landed awkwardly after failing to come down with a two-point conversion pass in the fourth quarter against the Cowboys. Nelson appeared to wince after he landed. He stood on the sideline with his helmet on during the last drive but never got back in the game.

Running back Ty Montgomery also was listed as a full participant in Wednesday’s practice — the first time he’s had designation since he broke multiple ribs in Week 4 against the Bears. However, the Packers’ only full-pads practice of the week comes on Thursday. If Montgomery makes it through that as a full participant, then perhaps he has a legitimate chance to return against the Vikings.

However, after the way rookie Aaron Jones played against the Cowboys (19 carries for 125 yards and a touchdown), coach Mike McCarthy might have to think about going with Jones as his No. 1 running back regardless of Montgomery’s status.

“I’m not sure really what Ty’s availability is going to be No. 1,” McCarthy said before Wednesday’s practice. “No. 2 we got to get Aaron ready. We’ve got to get Jamaal [Williams] ready.”

The only players who did not practice Wednesday all were on defense: outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks (back), safety Morgan Burnett (hamstring), cornerback Kevin King (concussion) and inside linebacker Joe Thomas (ankle).

Right tackle Bryan Bulaga was limited after he made his return to the lineup against the Cowboys. So was left tackle David Bakhtiari, who shas not played since the regular-season opener because of a hamstring injury.

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Receiver Jordy Nelson had an injury that kept him off the field for the Green Bay Packers’ game-winning drive on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, but neither Nelson nor coach Mike McCarthy would say what it was.

McCarthy would only say that it wasn’t a hamstring injury, as had been previously reported. And the fact that Nelson spoke to reporters after the game meant it wasn’t a concussion, because players who are diagnosed with one are prohibited from talking with reporters. A source confirmed on Monday that Nelson is not in the concussion protocol.

“Jordy, he was being evaluated,” McCarthy said Monday. “I don’t know where we would have been if it went into overtime. But at that point we just stayed with the group we had out there.”

Nelson was on the sideline with his helmet on standing next to the coaches and other players during the final drive. Geronimo Allison replaced Nelson and played alongside Randall Cobb and Davante Adams. It was Adams who caught the game-winning, 12-yard touchdown pass with 11 seconds remaining in the 35-31 victory.

Nelson’s last play was a failed two-point conversion after Damarious Randall’s interception return for a touchdown with 9:56 left. Nelson was the intended target on the play and appeared to land awkwardly. It was unclear what injury he sustained on the play.

“We’ll have that for you Wednesday,” McCarthy said, referring to when the Packers have to issue their first injury report in advance of Sunday’s game at Minnesota.

After the game, receivers coach Luke Getsy spent several minutes talking with Nelson at his locker. Nelson, on his way to the team bus, told ESPN, “I’m good.”

“We got a little banged up,” he added, “but we’ll be good.”

The Packers also lost starting cornerback Kevin King to a first-half concussion, and safety Morgan Burnett left late in the game with a hamstring injury.

Dan Marino threw his 300th touchdown on pass number 5,460 of his career. Tom Brady did it in 5,321 attempts. Peyton Manning took 5,306 throws.

Aaron Rodgers, who has 298 career regular-season touchdown passes, could take 606 more pass attempts — more than he’s thrown in all but one of his NFL seasons — to throw two more touchdowns and he’d still be the fastest player in league history to reach 300.

Sure, it may be just another milestone on the way to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but it’s still remarkable how much more efficient the Green Bay Packers quarterback is than even the greatest who have ever played.

“It’s his receivers, obviously,” joked Jordy Nelson, who has 60 of Rodgers’ touchdowns.

On the way to 298 touchdowns, he’s thrown just 73 interceptions. Brady had 115 picks when he reached 300 touchdowns. That’s the fewest interceptions at the time of a 300th career touchdown pass among the 11 quarterbacks who have reached that milestone. Manning had 152 and Marino 169. Rodgers will easily break that record, too.

So what’s more important to Rodgers, the touchdowns or the lack of interceptions?

“It’s both,” he said. “It’s big plays, it’s high touchdown percentage and low interception percentage. That’s the way I’ve always played since I was in high school. Didn’t quite do it my eighth-grade and ninth-grade year. Got a little better, got a little better in 10th, 11th and 12th and then took care of the football pretty well in college. But no, it’s the way I’ve always played. It’s opportunistic that I’m trying to make big plays, throw touchdowns at a high percentage and then don’t throw interceptions.”

Perhaps even more impressive is Rodgers has had just one of his 73 interceptions returned for a touchdown. Or, as Nelson put it, one-and-a-half. Nelson ribbed Rodgers for failing to catch Seahawks defensive tackle Nazair Jones in Sunday’s season opener against Seattle. Jones picked off a Rodgers pass and, with the quarterback giving chase, he returned it 64 yards for a touchdown. But the return was called back because of a penalty.

“I think he is smart with what he does,” Nelson said. “I think if it comes down to holding the ball too long or throwing a pick, he’ll hold the ball too long to protect that because you can live off that. You throw interceptions and pick-sixes, then you’re obviously really hurting the team. If you throw it away or take a sack, we live to play another down. And honestly he probably has the mindset if it’s taking a chance on second down or getting a sack and a third-and-long, he’ll take the third-and-long and see what we can do with it.

“But just everything. He sees things, it seems, before they happen. I think the guys upfront do a great job to give him the time. We try to do our best on the outside to make it as easy as possible, but he does something different than a lot of other guys. For as many touchdowns as he throws compared to his touchdown-to-interception ratio and everything else, he’s doing something right. Maybe he’ll tell you the secret because I don’t know it.”
