The Packers travel to Ford Field to take on the Detroit Lions on Sunday. This game marks the beginning of a three game NFC North stretch for the Packers. Two of the games, this one and the one against the Bears, will be played away from Lambeau Field. After a season-opening loss to Seattle and comeback victory against the Jets in week two, the Packers will likely show their true colors in this game.

Jordy Nelson put up 209 yards in the Packers comeback win against the Jets Sunday. The Packers, with the win, squared themselves up with the rest of the division at 1-1.

Well the Packers spotted the Jets too many points in this game. But with a little over five minutes left in the first half...the turnaround began! Hey this team made mistakes, got itself in a hole, and at times frustrated Packers fans...but THIS IS A WIN! The LAST thing the Packers could afford was to go into the NFC North streak (in which they play all rivals in the next three weeks) 0-2. The Packers got behind early and looked dazed, confused, and lackluster but it all changed toward the end of the second quarter. (more…)

One Major Change in Post Game News

Packers fans have unfortunately grown accustomed to seeing starters go down and get helped off the field. But there is another pattern that I have noticed in the recent past, it starts in the post game press conference and when it is bad, carries through the end of the season. This week, however, saw the first reversal of that trend that I remember for a long time...and it's a good thing Packers fans. (more…)
