GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The Green Bay Packers' blueprint to slow down Atlanta in the NFC championship game focuses on turning the high-octane Falcons into a one-dimensional offense. It sounds simple enough. But this plan could be tough to execute for the Packers with their injury issues in the secondary. It's tough enough to contain All-Pros Matt Ryan and Julio Jones with a healthy...

Aaron Rodgers’ relationship with actress Olivia Munn is the primary cause of the rift with his family, according to a new report. Munn has long been believed to be the source of the Rodgers’ family feud, and a source told US Weekly that the actress has a “strong personality” and that “every meeting she has had with [Rodgers’ family] has gone badly” since the supercouple...
I've been seeing all over the place that Jordy Nelson has a chance to play this Sunday in Atlanta. Before anything gets misconstrued, I'm completely 100 percent whole-heartedly against the idea of him suiting up against the Falcons. Broken ribs typically take 4-6 weeks to heal, and if the Packers manage to scrape by the Falcons and get two weeks of rest prior to Super Bowl 51, that...

Sunday won't be the first time they get a look at this Packers team, who is still cycling through the motions with their "next man up" philosophy due to reoccurring injuries. Green...

Aaron Rodgers is not on speaking terms with several members of his family, and the drama supposedly began when the Green Bay Packers quarterback and his younger brother Jordan had a massive argument. A source close to Rodgers told People Magazine that Aaron and Jordan have had a life-long rivalry that took an ugly turn roughly two years ago when a disagreement became a massive “blow...
The Green Bay Packers are heading to the NFC Championship Game on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. They have had an impressive season to say the least, although there have been some disappointments along the way. One of those disappointments is starting cornerback Sam Shields.

The Green Bay Packers could be without receiver Jordy Nelson for a second consecutive playoff game. According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, Nelson—who broke multiple ribs during Green Bay’s win over the New York Giants in the NFC Wild Card Round—has nothing more than a “small chance” to play against the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. “The source...
