Robert Griffin III

Green Bay Packers
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Five things to watch for in Sunday afternoon's Week 2 matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Washington Redskins:
1. Secondary improvement needed
Colin Kaepernick dominated the Packers' secondary with a 412-yard passing performance in Week 1. Facing another dual-threat quarterback in Robert Griffin III, Green Bay needs to show significant improvement in its pass defense in order to give the team a chance to win.
"You could make a case that we aren't a very good pass defense team right now based off of the first game," defensive coordinator Dom Capers said.

If that's all it took for Griffin to get back to normal, the Packers will be trying to stop a quarterback who led the NFL last season in passing yards pe...

Sunday night football features the most anticipated quarterback matchup so far and no I’m not talking about the Manning bowl. It’s Kaepernick and Wilson. A whole offseason of back and forth smack and twitter wars will end as the Seahawks and the 49ers collide in a matchup of the two most complete teams in NFL. Both teams are coming of victories but they achieved them in different...
And then there was one. No, I’m not talking about the number of teams in first place in the NFC West. That’s important too, but I’m talking about the real news, which is Colin Kaepernick being forced to shave one eyebrow off after getting embarrassed by Russell Wilson and the Seahawks. The bet started out as a friendly joke for a Madden commercial, but it picked up steam as...
A bet is a bet. Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson made an “eyebrow bet” on last nights game that the 49ers lost. Colin Kaepernick has lived up to his end of the deal and shaved his eyebrow. He’s a better man than me because I would have pretended I never said that.

Colin Kaepernick has been labeled the NFL's next Superman. But Seattle is his Kryptonite. His 49ers are now 0-2 against the Seahawks after he turned in the worst passing performance of 2013 Sunday night (20.1 passer rating).
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter via ProFootballTalk.com, the Philadelphia Eagles almost acquired Colin Kaepernick in a trade with the 49ers that would have sent a second round pick to San Francisco prior to the 2012 NFL draft.
Because Alex Smith had a strong year in 2011, after Kaepernick had been drafted, the 49ers reportedly were willing to move him. Schefter says the Eagles...
Given that Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is a known provocateur on the football field — as well as off it — perhaps it should not be surprising that he said he has no problem with San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kapernick’s patented touchdown celebration of kissing his bicep.

As 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson prepare to square off for the second time in their careers (Kaepernick was a backup when the teams played the first time last season) an interesting report has emerged regarding the possibility that either of them could be playing for the Eagles.
