The Green Bay Packers opened the season by playing teams who now have a combined record of 28-18 including the San Francisco 49ers (5-2), Chicago Bears (5-1) and Houston Texans (6-1).
Against the league’s cream of the crop, they went 2-1 and are inching back up the power rankings with each week’s stronger showing.
Finally, the Packers get to welcome one of the league’s bottom-feeders into Lambeau Field. The Jacksonville Jaguars have displayed more problems than positives and have a huge mountain to climb to compete with the Green and Gold.
Jacksonville Jaguars (1-5) Analysis: Everything begins with the mess known as the Jaguars’ offense. They rank dead last in the league in total yards, passing yards, third down efficiency and points.

I like watching NFL players ‘act’. While it isn’t a true glimpse into the player’s personality it is a chance to see some of the league’s top talents without their helmets/outside of their comfort zone. We’ve seen some good commercials, and some bad one’s throughout the years; and for the time being I have a new favourite.

There have been a few negative moments for Newhouse, such as allowing five sacks in Green Bay's first seven games...

The beat-up Packers struggled on offense without receivers Jordy Nelson and Greg Jennings. The defense, however, held firm in the second half.
Like Darren Sharper and Nick Collins, there are defensive backs coming out of college that just seem to get it and can contribute right away. This year it’s rookie cornerback Casey Hayward, who actually is tied for the lead in interceptions with 4.
Hayward has been a very good slot cornerback behind Tramon Williams, Sam Shields and Charles Woodson, but with Sam Shields out after...
Undrafted, cut twice and having found a "real" job in construction, Brett Goode got a call from the Packers just before 2008 season. One of the most anonymous players on the team, Goode has been rewarded for going unnoticed.

They also blew off any suggestion that a rash of injuries impacted a mundane performance Sunday. No matter the reason, the Packers struggled to put away the Jaguars, escaping with a 24-15 victory at Lambeau Field. "I don't really think it's something...
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...
