Green Bay Packers
New Orleans Saints
The Green Bay Packers have had one of the tougher schedules to start the year. They started with the stout 49ers, a division rival in the Bears, a Seattle game marred by the replacement refs and a Saints team desperate for a win. To come out of that with a 2-2 record could be looked at as a success or an utter disappointment.
And just when you thought the road gets a little easier, it doesn’t.
The Packers travel to Indianapolis to take on a Colts team who will be playing with heavy hearts after learning about their Head Coach Chuck Pagano and his diagnosis with leukemia.
Indianapolis Colts (1-2) Analysis: In reality, Pagano’s leukemia has nothing to do with the football being played on the field. But it will have an effect on the Colts’ fans who are beyond passionate about their NFL team and it will provide a young team with a motivational boost. Fans have the opportunity to pick up CHUCKSTRONG T-Shirts (pictured above), tees I expect to see all over the place on Sunday. We all ho...

Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com reiterated how thin the Colts are right now at cornerback as they get ready to face the surging Packers offense:
Cassius Vaughn will start opposite Jerraud Powers. Darius Butler or Josh Gordy will be at nickel in two different versions of the package. It could be catastrophic, but interim coach Bruce Arians has no choice but...
Andrew Luck took a vicious hit on this play, and luckily he wasn’t hurt on the play. Nick Perry is a big man and has been a force so far for the Green Bay Packers. Even though he got lit up, Luck got the last laugh by pulling off the upset victory.Via: @cfbsection

After the fourth-year linebacker dominated the 49ers and Bears in Weeks 1 and 2 and was on pace...
The Colts week 5 game was supposed to be about their Head Coach. It was supposed to be about the emotions of the sad, unexpected, depressing situation. It was supposed to be about the Green Bay Packers showing the world they're still the best team in the NFL.
Instead, as the Colts (2-2) fought back from a 21-3 halftime deficit to win 30-27, we found that today was all about...
Tight end Jermichael Finley hasn’t been the same since his knee injury
While most fans and members of the media have been focusing on Jermichael Finley’s drops for the past 21 games, I’m more concerned about his decreased athleticism.
