Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews Jr. believes he’ll be fine after suffering a hamstring injury that kept him out of most of today’s loss to the Bengals.
“I’ll be good. I think today was more of a preventive measure than anything,” said Matthews, via the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “I felt like I could go back out there, but we have to be smart, especially going into a bye week. I don’t see myself missing any time. We have Detroit coming back and I’ll be out there.”

Jordy Nelson has three TDs in two games this season.
“It’s two games, but you can see how quick it can happen. James (Jones) went from no yards in Week 1 to 179 in Week 2,” said Jordy Nelson when asked about the possibility of himself and Randall Cobb each finishing the year with 1,000 yards receiving.
On Sunday you’re going to see two of the best receivers in the NFL.
McCarthy and Rodgers have not fared well when playing from behind late in games
Last season and after the loss to the Seattle Seahawks, I wrote about how the Green Bay Packers were facing a turning point in their early season. It seemed like a knee-jerk reaction to what was a huge debacle by the replacement officials and the NFL because it was after only three games. Turns out...

Remember all those records that Aaron Rodgers broke and tied in the Packers' Week 2 win? Well, Rodgers' performance in the loss at Cincinnati was nothing like that.
This was one of the worst games that Rodgers has played in several years. Given how high of...
This week, I thought you might enjoy a few fun facts about the New York Giants with your early week 3 pick ups:•The Jets had more penalty yards than the Giants had offensive yards this week. That’s pathetic.•Eli Manning now leads the league in interceptions. After the Carolina blowout, you have to wonder if Peyton was taking it easy on his little brother last week...
Just last week, James Starks wasn't owned in most fantasy leagues. Then disaster struck the Green Bay Packers. Eddie Lacy suffered a concussion and didn't return to the game. Starks came in and embarrassed the Washington Redskins' poor excuse for a defense. Starks had 132 rushing yards and four catches for 36 receiving yards. He saw the biggest rise in ownership this...
Every time the Green Bay Packers send a running back out on the field they ask themselves can this guy stand guard over the franchise?
Having the guy be a 1000-yard rusher is always nice. Being a decent receiver is a plus. But if he can't protect quarterback Aaron Rodgers he might as well not put on his cleats.
This is not breaking news around here but it does speak to the...
Green Bay tight end Jermichael Finley left Sunday's game after taking a shot to the head.Fantasy Spin:The Packers lost Eddie Lacy early in last week's game to a concussion, and Finley may have suffered the same fate. We'll have updates soon.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had his worst game of the season Sunday against the Bengals, throwing two picks and completing only 26-of-43 for 244 yards and a touchdown.Fantasy Spin:Cincinnati sacked Rodgers four times. The superstar came into Week 3 with 813 yards and a 7-1 TD-INT ratio, but he couldn't get on the same page with his receivers Sunday.
Vontaze Burfict can expect to open his wallet and donate to the NFL fund this week as soon as Roger Goodell watches the tape from the Bengals and Packers game. Burfict gave Ryan Taylor an unfair nut shot and when Taylor retaliated he was called for a flag. Unfair and very dick-ish, but it worked for the time being.

The Packers-Bengals game has been great throughout, but this go-ahead score by the Bengals, after squandering an initial 14-0 lead and falling behind big, was a dervish of minds exploding. Johnathan Franklin lost it before crashing into the line and then things got crazy.
