The Green Bay Packers finally return to action this week when they take on division rivals, the Detroit Lions.
The Packers tried to use their bye week to get healthy but that came with little success.Â Greg Jennings, Bryan Bulaga and Clay Matthews have already been ruled out for Sundayâs game.Â In some good news regarding injuries, it appears that Jordy Nelson should be back on the field Sunday, but the team wonât announce the decision till closer till game time.

The Lions are coming off a division loss to the Minnesota Vikings and are looking to bring themselves back to the level of play they had last season when they made the playoffs.Â The Lions are fighting for their playoff lives at this point and will be playing desperate at this point, which make...

Thereâs nothing like going to a Packers game in enemy territory and seeing the annoyed looks on the faces of opposing fans as you walk by; that âwhat are you doing in my backyard?â look. Well imagine the looks a big, loud organized Packers tailgate is going to get.
More importantly, if youâre going to the game, you want to hang with fellow Packers fans to revel in the greatness...
Ahhhs and boos.
Those are the two distinct and opposite reactions the home crowd rains down on the same missed opportunity. Popular Green Bay Packers named Jennings, Jordy and James hear the former.
The latter may seem reserved solely for embattled tight end Jermichael Finley when he does the same thing . . . drop the rock.
I first noticed the hostility toward Finley...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Reinforcements are on the way for the injury-riddled Packers. Two key players from their Super Bowl team two years ago, outside linebacker Frank Zombo and tight end Andrew Quarless, are both about to make their season debuts.

I hate that show TâŚ
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was mad as hell at the final cut of his â60 Minutesâ appearance last week.
