As part of an improving defense, Hawk feels that the unit hasn't hit their potential yet, and that they are starting to get on the same page. A.J.

GREEN BAY, Wis. Less than eight minutes away from clinching the NFC North, the Packers, with a comfortable 21-10 lead over the Chicago Bears, decided to try a trick play.

"I wasn't thrilled with the call, to be honest with you,"...
With an opportunity to become NFC North champions for the second consecutive year, the Green Bay Packers went into Chicago and got it done.

CHICAGO Two more missed field goals from Mason Crosby in the Packers' division-clinching win over the Bears on Sunday has still not changed coach Mike McCarthy's mind about who their kicker should be for the remainder of this season.
"We're not changing our kicker, so you can write that down right now," McCarthy said. "He's our guy."
While the Green Bay Packers have ruled wide receiver Jordy
Nelson and safety Charles Woodson out for this weekend’s contest against the
