Both the Packers and Vikings came away with ugly wins in Week 1, Minnesota’s slightly more justified than Green Bay’s. But instead of downplaying the magnitude of this Sunday’s primetime matchup, much of the conversation this week has revolved around injuries, starting with the Vikings’ quarterback situation and followed by the availability of both teams’ top cornerbacks. The potential absence of Xavier Rhodes at cornerback would leave Minnesota exposed in its secondary, with second-year cornerback Trae Waynes likely getting the start opposite veteran cornerback Terrence Newman.

First of all...I have to toot my own horn this morning. Before the Jacksonville game, I predicted in no uncertain terms that the first play from scrimmage would be Eddie Lacy running right off Lane Taylor's hip. Bingo!

The Packers 27-23 win over the Jags yesterday opens the door for a week two divisional rivalry game against the Vikes that will knock one of the two teams off the top spot in the NFC North (though perhaps still tied with the Lions if they beat the Titans). The Packers' offense took a little time to get going but one thing became abundantly clear. Jordy Nelson is back. (more…)

What 2 Watch 4: Packers Versus Jaguars

  1 year ago     118 Views     1 Comment  

When the Packers take on the Jaguars later today, it will be a hot one. Projections are that the game could be the third hottest in Packers history and that of course means the team will have to find ways to stay cool and hydrated. The Packers veterans have been waiting in the stables the bulk of this off-season and preseason and now it is time to release the hounds. Here is what I will be watching for: (more…)
