Packers DL B.J. Raji
When looking at the box score of a given football game, it can be easy to overlook some of the unsung heroes.
Sometimes it’s the offensive line paving the way for a 100-yard rusher and going largely unnoticed. Other times it’s a cornerback shutting down an opposing receiver, only to be ignored because he never got his hands on the ball.
On Sunday, defensive tackle B.J. Raji may have been the best player on the field for the Packers.
From his pick-six that sent the Packers to Super Bowl XLV in 2010 to his dominant performance on Sunday, it sure seems like Raji enjoys playing in the Windy City. Raji played what was likely his best game of the season with the NFC North championship on the line.
Pro Football Focus credited Raji with a +4.4 grade against the Bears–his best PFF grade since the NFC Championship during the 2010 season.
The box score only gives Raji credit for one solo tackle. No sacks, no forced fumbles. Just one tackle.
But looking beyond the numbers a...

After wrapping up the division title last week, the Green Bay Packers will look to get closer to getting the number two seed in the NFC when they take on the Tennessee Titans Sunday afternoon.
The Packers are heavy favorites in this game and because they still have a lot to play for, they should be giving this game their all.
Green Bay’s defense should have an easy time slowing...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Greg Jennings could be preparing to play his final few games with the Green Bay Packers, and the two-time Pro Bowl, soon-to-be-free-agent wide receiver knows it.
"Sometimes you look on the wall and you see a lot of writing," Jennings said Wednesday in the locker room. "And it's hard to ignore that writing as a player. Because you never want...
The Green Bay Packer clinched the NFC Central title by closing out the Chicago Bears in grand fashion.
However, the Packers aren’t happy with just division titles, they want Super Bowls rings and they feel that they are just getting warmed up.
Along with key players getting healthy, there is a feeling that the team is coming together at the right time.
When a team is hitting...
GREEN BAY, Wis. A foot of snow accumulating Thursday and blizzard conditions throughout northern and central Wisconsin will once again give Green Bay Packers fans an opportunity to shovel out Lambeau Field.
On Friday morning, by which time the snow is expected to stop falling, the Packers are asking for up to 600 fans (ages 15 and up) to help remove the snow from the stadium.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Randall Cobb is only 456 yards away from history. The Packers' talented second-year wide receiver, kick and punt returner has a realistic chance to become the NFL's single-season leader for all-purpose yards.
After a career-high 115 receiving yards in Sunday's win over the Chicago Bears, plus 37 kick-return yards, Cobb's season total for all-purpose...
Packers receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring) didn't practice again Thursday and seems doubtful for Sunday. SOURCE: Pete Dougherty, Green Bay Press-GazetteFantasy Spin:Nelson (46-658-6) has missed the last two games and most of Week 13 due to a hamstring injury. Even if he can get things together for Sunday's game, he'll be difficult to trust with Randall Cobb, Greg Jennings...
Greg Jennings is not naive and he's not ignoring reality, either.
The veteran wide receiver is in the final year of his contract, and has yet to hear from the Green Bay Packers about an extension. Common sense - and Green Bay history - would suggest that means he'll be playing somewhere else next season, a notion Jennings doesn't dispute. But even with the Packers playing...
Green Bay Packers WR Greg Jennings continued to discuss his future with the team. Jennings was asked whether or not he plans on being back with the team next season.
“Will I be here? That’s totally up to the Packers,” responded Jennings, via NFL.com. “I know one way I don’t want to be here is under a franchise tag.”
Jennings, 29, is set to become an unrestricted free...
According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy wouldn’t say for sure whether cornerback/safety Charles Woodson will play this week.
Coach Mike McCarthy would not guarantee that Charles Woodson (broken collarbone) would be back for the Tennessee game Sunday, but he did say he hoped to get him some action before the playoffs...
The Green Bay Packers are looking for help.
The NFL's only publicly owned team is asking for as many as 600 people to clear snow from Lambeau Field on Friday. The first big storm of the winter has already dumped 6 inches of snow on northeastern Wisconsin, with up to a foot expected before it tapers off. The Packers host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
Shovelers need to be at...
Randall Cobb has taken his new role and run with it, developing into the NFL's top all-around threat in just his second season in the league. With the injuries to Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson, where would the Packers be without Cobb chasing franchise and NFL history?
Greg Jennings has been Aaron Rodgers‘ favorite receiver for going on six years now. But the times may be a changing in Green Bay.
Jennings has been the Packers’ most productive receiver and biggest red zone threat over the past five years, averaging about 70 catches, 1,100 yards and nine touchdowns over that span. But a lingering groin injury this season severely limited his...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Donald Driver is a four-time Pro Bowl selection, the Green Bay Packers' all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards, a Super Bowl champion and a "Dancing with the Stars" winner.
But even though Driver's DWTS success last spring did wonders for his celebrity status, the 37-year-old is having a challenging 14th season with the Packers. Driver...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter (Insider), should Rams RB Steven Jackson decide to void his contract and become a free agent following the season, the Green Bay Packers could be a potential suitor for the veteran running back.
“The Packers have always been interested in Jackson and now that his contract is up, it would make some sense for Green Bay to take a look,” writes...
