Coming off one of their worst regular season losses in recent memories, the Green Bay Packers look to get on track at home against the rival Minnesota Vikings. Fresh off getting trounced 38-10 at the hands of the Giants, Green Bay is in a standard trap game looking for their 8th win. Even with the recent history between the Vikes and the Pack (GB 4-0 in last four games), Green Bay can’t afford to lose this game if they want to lead the race for the playoffs. Although entering Sunday’s game as the severe underdog (+9.5), Minnesota remains one of the league’s biggest surprises given their competitive 6-5 record. Lots of playoff implications in this game, and it shouldn’t disappoint fans.
The Pack are the heavy favorites for Sunday, they’ve won 80% of game simulations. They also have a 60% probability of beating the 9.5 point spread, and it could be over quickly if QB Aaron Rodgers aggressively attacks. Rodgers averaged almost 30...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Don't expect to see Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers still sporting a thick moustache Sunday, on his 29th birthday, when he takes the field to face the Minnesota Vikings.
Rodgers, who has been growing a moustache all month to help raise awareness of prostate cancer as part of Movember, plans to shave it as soon as the calendar turns to December.
For a guy who does his best work in the air, Aaron Rodgers is spending way too much time on the ground.
The reigning NFL MVP has been sacked 37 times, more than any other quarterback in the league. He's taken more hits in the first 11 games than he did all of last season (36 sacks), and is on pace to topple the career-high 50 sacks he took in 2009.

Mike McCarthy Admits Mistakes
As I sat in MetLife Stadium and watched the NY Giants dismantle the Packers before my eyes, my neck started to hurt from shaking my head so much. Beyond the disappointing play and the result, I was especially not pleased by what I saw of the Packers game plan, play calling and decision-making.
Coach McCarthy went away from the running game after the...
In a surprise move of the 2012 NFL season, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has finally come to terms with his own body and made a sports-media shattering announcement. He has finally come out of the blanket and revealed himself to be a 5 year old boy, which actually explains a whole lot.
"I just felt it was time," he said while eating a Pop Tart at a recent...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- For the Minnesota Vikings (6-5) to make the playoffs this season, they'll need to win at least one of their two upcoming games with the division-rival Packers (7-4). The first of those two NFC North showdowns is Sunday at Lambeau Field, with both teams' regular-season schedules concluding four weeks later in Minnesota.
"I want to go ahead and control...

The Packers continue to try to find ways to protect Aaron Rodgers, with mixed results. Enter Jared Allen and the Vikings.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the Green Bay Packers have heard the comparisons between this season and their run to the Super Bowl title in 2010 in regard to the way the injuries have piled up.
Rodgers, the league's highest-rated quarterback this season, has been through this before. The media reminds him of that, but he calls this a "different team...
One thing I noticed while watching the Green Bay Packers humiliating loss to the New York Giants was their inability to put themselves in favorable down-and-distance situations.
In fact, of the 54 offensive downs that Aaron Rodgers was on the field for, 40 of them were at or over ten yards to convert. Three were in the moderate-long range (7-9 yds.), eight were in the moderate-short...
Green Bay Packers running back Cedric Benson will miss the rest of the season after undergoing foot surgery, head coach Mike McCarthy announced Thursday. Benson had been the Packers' Injured Reserve after suffering a Lisfranc injury at Indianapolis. He ran for 248 yards on 71 carries with one touchdown. Running backs James Starks and Alex Green will continue to share time at running back.
The Packers have built a sterling record since the start of 2011, but in their losses can be found the key to beating them. See how the Packers’ five losses all have something in common when Aaron Rodgers starts feeling pressure.
