Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady will do battle as starters for the first time in their career Sunday in a matchup of two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

Super Bowl preview looms for NFC’s ‘Team to Beat’

            Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports You can almost smell that Turkey in the oven. The stuffing and mashed potatoes. Veggies and dinner rolls. Cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. Yes, we’ve reached the fourth week of November, which means two things: Thanksgiving and the start of the NFL’s stretch run towards the playoffs. And as Week 12 concludes...

Packers’ Linsley Perfect Example of Thompson’s Practices

There was much consternation at the beginning of the season.  The Packers spent time and resources developing a plan to keep this team healthier.  If you ask Mike McCarthy that’s a huge part of this team’s success, especially in the regular season.  He claims to have only coached two teams of above average health in his career.  The 2007 Packers that went 12-4 and made it...

Patriots Made Right Choice In Trading Clay Matthews Pick To Packers

An alternate universe exists where Clay Matthews is racking up double-digit sack seasons at outside linebacker on the New England Patriots’ defense. Sounds pretty exciting, right? Well, consider this: Rob Gronkowski also is playing elsewhere in this universe, which suddenly doesn’t sound so fun anymore. The Patriots once held the No. 26 overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft ...

Green Bay Packers: News, stats, and stars from the Vikings game

For the fifth time in the nine seasons that Mike McCarthy has been the head coach of the Green Bay Packers, his team swept the season series against the Minnesota Vikings, this time winning 24-21.  While it was not the fifty point performance the Packers had shown the past two games, it was still enough to get the victory against the Vikings, who now are in the cellar in the NFC...

Aaron Rodgers fakes out entire Vikings defense

This was a great fake by Aaron Rodgers at the goal line, and it was sold well by tight end Richard Rodgers too. But c’mon, entire Vikings defense. No one thought to get within even 10 yards of that guy running to the other side of the end zone? Rodgers had to wait nearly three seconds for the ball to come down. Seriously, I can not stop laughing. https://t.co/amva8foIj9 — Aaron...

Grades for each Packers positional unit in win over Vikings

Wins don’t always come easy, especially when playing a divisional opponent on the road. After back-to-back blowout wins, Green Bay escaped Minnesota with a close victory in a hard-fought game, 24-21. It wasn’t a clean game by any means. This team had to overcome more adversity and poor play in stretches. Minnesota found ways to limit the Packers’ prolific offense and attack...

Packers Aftermath: Top of the NFC North Again

Well look at that, the Packers are once again sitting atop the NFC North. Must be that final stretch toward the end of the season. When the difference between a 1 or 2 seeded team, a Wild Card spot and sitting on the couch watching the playoffs from home may only be a loss or two, every win counts. And taking out an NFC North rival at home is all the more satisfying. The Packers...

Will B.J. Raji be back with the Packers in 2015?

When the Green Bay Packers opted to re-sign defensive lineman, B.J. Raji this past off-season to a one year deal, it came as a bit of a surprise to Packer Nation.

Packers starting to gain steam

Weren’t the Green Bay Packer supposedly dead in the water just a few weeks ago? At least that’s what the blogosphere felt like after their third loss of the season.
