Green Bay Packers
Packers WR Randall Cobb had another big game on Sunday against the Cardinals.
As Packers players kept limping off the field Sunday, Aaron Rodgers kept his team moving forward. Well, for the most part, anyway.
There were some frustrating moments, and more failed opportunities to bury a team before the fourth quarter, but given all the injuries, Sunday’s win over the Cardinals was a good one.
As the Packers added Clay Matthews and Bryan Bulaga to their multi-page list of injured players, they also added another notch in the win column. The Packers are now 6-3 heading into the bye and need the week off to heal and come back as strong as possible for the stretch run.
Will the injuries keep mounting and derail the season? Or will players heal and be well-rested come December and January?
Here’s hoping for the latter.

I encounter something very similar every time the Packers are on tv with the following search strings: “Aaron Rodgers gay” “Aaron Rodgers gay rumors” “Is Aaron Rodgers...

Aaron Rodgers won Sunday, but the reigning NFL MVP might have been the only one who wasn't impressed with his play in Week 9.

Aaron Rodgers, RGIII, and two other guys who occasionally throw the football are all on bye this week. So are all the people they throw to. What does this mean? It’s time to check the matchups.
Did you see The Titans’ most recent embarrassment? They had lost that game before the first quarter was over and Brandon Marshall still ended the game with 3 TDs. In short, The...

This win for the Packers is more proof that their slow start to the season is nothing to worry about and they are back in the running for the Super Bowl. On the other side, this loss for the Cardinals also proved something about their fast start to the season, it was a fluke. After starting the season 4-0, the Cardinals have since lost five straight games and are no longer in...
