It is just nine more days until Aaron Rodgers’ Day (!), but the reigning MVP’s 29th birthday took place Sunday on a glorious afternoon where the Green Bay Packers took over first place in the NFC North.
As the game ended and the players walked off the field, Rodgers showed a lot of emotion when he attempted a self-forced piggy back on tight end Jermichael Finley.Considering the chemisty history between these two, or lackthereof, was this just a bit? Was Rodgers trying to pose for the cameras that he is buddy-buddy with his outspoken tight end?
Finley of course had no idea that it was his quarterback’s birthday. If you have not read the quotes from Finley’s oddest interview of the season, visit Fox Sports Wisconsin.
J-Mike is breaking out!

Who said that not one call changes a season? Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said that the week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks could have a huge impact on where Green Bay plays in the playoffs, and to them it still isn’t fair.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers couldn’t be more excited that the Seattle Seahawks rallied back to beat the Chicago Bears 23-17 on Sunday.
Considering it was the same Seahawks team that beat the Packers on Monday Night Football earlier this season on a phantom touchdown catch during the replacement referee era.
With the Bears loss and the Packers win over the Vikings...
I drafted me first too Juan…
In most fantasy leagues, Aaron Rodgers was the first QB taken and quite possibly the #1 overall pick. He started the year slowly as teams adjusted to the Packers pass attack, but then in a 6 week span he scored 24 or more points 5 out of 6 games.
Rodgers is back in a funk with 3 straight games of 15 fantasy points or less. Of course if you are riding...
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers scrambles to evade the pressure from Vikings DE Jared Allen
It was a solid rebound from their blowout loss to the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers are back in first place in the NFC North.

Aaron Rodgers was aided by a good running game while the Vikings had nothing but Adrian Peterson. With the Packers pitching a second-half shutout, they beat the Vikings 23-14 and stayed right in the heart of the playoff race.

Not only was rookie free agent Don Barclay not a liability when he replaced T.J. Lang at right tackle, his rock-solid performance helped get Green Bay’s running game jump-started and kept quarterback Aaron Rodgers mostly upright.
The Green Bay Packers are back atop the NFC North, and they have a very unlikely source to thank.
Minutes after the Packers wrapped up their 23-14 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday afternoon, Seattle beat Chicago in overtime to drop the Bears back into a tie with Green Bay for the division lead.

Minnesota Vikings (6-5) at Green Bay Packers (7-4)
Aaron Rodgers is normally deadly off a loss, going 14-9 ATS in that situation in his career, including 10-4 ATS since 2009, which excludes 2008, his first year as a starter. However, as favorites of a touchdown or more, he’s just 4-3 ATS in that situation in his career. Besides, I still think the Packers are an overrated bunch...
This Sunday night, the Green Bay Packers host the Detroit Lions in a game that looks far simpler on paper than it will likely play out. The Lions have just four wins under their belt, while the Packers lead the NFC North with an 8-4 record.

Matt Ryan was on fire for most of the season. He had 17 points or more in 7 out of 8 games this season, including games of 31, 21, 24, 23, and 26. He has been a must start fantasy option until the last 3 weeks, where his production has fallen off big time.
In the last 3 games, he has thrown only 2 TDs vs 6 INTs. Ryan is only averaging 9 points per contest which included tilts vs...
