The Green Bay Packers look to keep the good times rolling as they take on the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday afternoon.
Both teams are dealing with injuries heading into the game as the Packers will be without Charles Woodson and the Jaguars will be without starting running back Maurice Jones-Drew. The Jaguars may also be facing the fact that their starting quarterback, Blaine Gabbert, may miss the game with injury as well.
The injuries will be a key blow to the Jaguars already slow moving offense. The Jaguars only average 15 points per game, one of the reasons why they are a lowly 1-5.
This is a game the Packers should easily win. The Jaguars could possibly be the worst team in the NFL. They rank dead last in passing offense, and are not much better in the running game, the loss of Jones-Drew doesn’t help either. They are third last in the league when it comes to rush defense and their passing defense isn’t much better.
This could lead to another big game for the Packers offense....

The reigning NFL MVP says a college professor laughing at his chances of making it to the NFL put a chip on his shoulder that helped him become who he is today.
Green Bay Packers fans can thank one of Aaron Rodgers’ college professors at Cal for helping to provide them with arguably the best quarterback in the NFL. The job of a college professor is to educate and prepare their students for the future, not try to discourage them from fulfilling their lifelong goals. On his weekly radio appearance with ESPN Milwaukee on Tuesday (via SportsRapport...
With both my fantasy matchup and my reputation on the line, I nervously watched the closing minutes of the Giants-Redskins game.
I picked wideout Victor Cruz to be the NFL’s number one fantasy WR last week, and inside the two-minute warning, Cruz had only six grabs for 54 yards. Thankfully, Eli Manning found that extra gear he has for those situations, and he found Victor for...

Aaron Rodgers, MVP #2? THUMBS UP!
Aaron Rodgers. Can we all agree that Aaron Rodgers is, head and shoulders, better than any other Quarterback in the NFL? When he is on his game, he is unstoppable. Completely. No matter the opponent, Rodgers will beat them. One...
Lethal weapons produce the most impact. Some of the impact is noticeable. Other times the impact is subtle but just as forceful. While the most lethal weapons in the NFL need a little help from their friends, they are pretty darn great all by themselves. Whether they sling the ball, run the ball, kick the ball or strip the ball, all the action is hardly every met by an opposite...
NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and National League MVP Ryan Braun own a restaurant together in Brookfield, Wis., and now the Packers and Brewers stars are teaming up for something more significant in their community.
Brookfield, a western suburb of Milwaukee, is the site of the Azana Salon & Spa, where three employees were killed and four other women were wounded Sunday by a gunman who...
Last week: 14 (+1) Record: 4-3 The Packers have looked awfully impressive over the past 2 weeks and Aaron Rodgers is playing out of his mind, but they’re still the favorite to be this year’s team that goes from a 1st round bye to out of the playoffs, though New England and Baltimore made strong [...]
Quarterback: Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay PackersThe Packers welcome the Jacksonville Jaguars to Lambeau Field on Sunday. Currently, Jacksonville is ranked 24th against the pass and worth mentioning, 28th against the run, but no one can run the ball in Green Bay. Aaron Rodgers will carve them up like a pumpkin this Sunday. Rodgers has tossed 16 touchdowns in only four games and I don’t...
The St. Louis Rams and New England Patriots are set to square off in London, England on Sunday afternoon. With the Rams 3-4 on the season in their first year under head coach Jeff Fishers, Sunday's game across the pond provides this young team with a nice opportunity to upset a NFL power.
Unfortunately, in my opinion, the match-up may be too much for the young Rams to handle...
