Green Bay Packers
Coming into the game Jacksonville was a 15.5 point underdog but it came down to a 4th down Jacksonville failure that sealed the Green Bay 24-15 victory.With the score 21-15 and 2:59 on the clock Jacksonville faced 4th-and-4 at the Green Bay 44, after rookie Casey Hayward made a fantastic open field tackle on Justin Blackmon on the previous play forcing the 4th down. On a drive that started at their own 8-yard line. Blaine Gabbert looked for Blackmon crossing the middle of the field but Green Bay bumped him off his route and only Packers were in the area where the ball was thrown.Green Bay took over and added another field goal following a 38-yard Jacksonville pass interference call for the final 24-15 score.After playing almost the entire first half in Green Bay territory, Jacksonville crossed the 50 just twice in the second half and converted just one of seven second half third down tries.Down to their third string inside linebacker and missing six other starts, Green Bay struggled...
BEST OF MAXIM
Packers’ beat writer Tom Silverstein writes that Alex Green will remain the team’s starting running back, despite his recent struggles.
Green Bay has consistently been linked to a number of trade options including Steven Jackson and DeAngelo Williams, but Silverstein adds that GM Ted Thompson prefers to maintain his cap space, so that he can address some of their big name...
Packers coach Mike McCarthy still wants running back Alex Green to be his lead running back going forward, according to team beat writer Tom Silverstein.Fantasy Spin:In the last three games Green only has 154 yards on 64 carries (2.4 ypc). McCarthy has stated he needs to see improvement in the team's running game but he clearly favors Green over James Starks (one carry Sunday...
Packers running back Alex Green handled 20-plus carries for the third straight game but rushed for just 54 yards Sunday against Jacksonville.Fantasy Spin:James Starks only had one carry in the game but Green is going to have to improve if he wants to keep his job. In the last three games the running back only has 154 yards on 64 carries (2.4 ypc).
The Green Bay Packers are optimistic they have enough depth in the secondary to compensate for the loss of Charles Woodson, and they have few worries on the other side of the ball with a red-hot Aaron Rodgers guiding their passing attack.
The offensively challenged Jacksonville Jaguars have much bigger problems.
Quarterback Blaine Gabbert hopes to play, but Maurice Jones-Drew definitely...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It was an ugly win for the Packers. Or, in Jermichael Finleys words, a real nasty win. It wasnt the type of game that the team will look back on with pride, but Green Bay (now 5-3) hit the midway point of its season with its third consecutive victory.

The “Toucherception in Seattle” still haunts the Green Bay Packers season
At 5-3 it wouldn’t be hard to find 12 different opinions on the Green Bay Packers season. A few would be positive, a majority of them would be negative, but the conclusion is all the same. This is not the 2011 Green Bay Packers, and they aren’t even close to the team they used to be just a...
Despite giving the Jacksonville Jaguars multiple opportunities to compete, the Green Bay Packers held on for a 24-15 win in a game where it could be argued the Jaguars looked like the better team.
Blaine Gabbert outplayed Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ (5-3) run-game was non-existent against a Jaguars (1-6) team who’s one of the league’s worst at defending the run.
A win is...

Running back James Starks has only six carries in the past three games
While Alex Green has averaged a pathetic 2.4 yards per carry in the past three games, a now healthy James Starks has carried the ball a total of six times. And five of those six carries came in garbage time against Houston. People can blame the offensive line all they want, but I blame Mike McCarthy. There’s...
