If the Packers were searching for redemption last week against a Kansas City club that spoiled their perfect regular season in 2011, they should be equally as motivated this week to take down a Forty-Niner team that has beaten Green Bay four straight times since the start of the 2012 season.

A Week 3 win over the Chiefs on Monday Night helped end the Packers’ recent trend of slow starts in the month of September. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers looked dominant on both sides of the ball in their 38-28 victory, a score that was not the slightest bit indicative of Green Bay’s dominance for three quarters of the game.

In-game injuries to Davante Adams and Andrew Quarless provided opportunities for young receivers Ty Montgomery and…

Just over eight months after the Packers committed one of the biggest playoff collapses in recent memory, Mike McCarthy’s crew is provided with an opportunity for revenge. The Packers host an angry Seattle team that did not expect to be coming into Week 2 at 0-1 -- or be playing without star safety, Kam Chancellor. Aaron Rodgers posted numbers in-line with fans’ expectations last week and will need to be even more stellar at home against one of the league’s best defenses. With James Jones back in the fold and tight end Richard Rodgers becoming an increasingly reliable target, the…
