Green Bay kept their hopes for the NFC number two seed alive, scoring 55 straight points, easily beating the Tennessee Titans 55-7 Sunday.On the frozen tundra of Lambeau field it was Tennessee that looked frozen all game long managing just 180 offensive yards, 53 of those yards came on the final drive when Tennessee scored it's only touchdown, while yielding 460 as Green Bay was solid in all three phases of the game Sunday.Domination was on the mind of Head Coach Mike McCarthy. "It was important for us to go out and dominate the opponents late in the year," McCarthy said. "We have momentum going for us particularly what we've done over the last nine weeks, 10 weeks, so we wanted to take the next step as a football team and I felt we were able to accomplish that today."Aaron Rodgers came into the game leading the NFL in passer rating at 104.7 and increased that number finishing with a 125.1 rating on this day.Ryan Grant who was passed over in the off-seaso...

Getting a week off sounds great to the Green Bay Packers.
It's looking even better now, too.
The Packers moved up to the No. 2 seed in the NFC on Sunday with their 55-7 thrashing of the Tennessee Titans and Seattle's victory over San Francisco. Beat the Minnesota Vikings next weekend, and the Packers (11-4) can spend the first week of the playoffs parked on the couch.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Tennessee Titans broke a four-game losing streak last week against the New York Jets. But the Green Bay Packers are not the Jets. The Packers continued their surge to the playoffs, winning their fourth in a row and their ninth in the last 10 games with a 55-7 rout of the Titans on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

The Green Bay Packers will hand the ball off to a familiar face in the Week 16 matchup against the Tennessee Titans, with Ryan Grant being declared as the team’s starting running back with Alex Green failing to receive medical clearance to return to action.

The 10-4 Green Bay Packers are set to take on the 5-9 Tennessee Titans in about 90 minutes' time. The weather in Wisconsin finally turned into a regular winter this last week. There was plenty of snowfall in Green Bay and surrounding areas Thursday. The team had to call for volunteer shovelers (who are paid $10 per hour, by the way) to help clear the snow from the seating areas...

The Green Bay Packers are coming off a 21-13 road win against the Chicago Bears that improved their record to 10-4 on the season and clinched the NFC North title. Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes to James Jones to stake the Packers to a 21-7 third quarter lead, and the Bears weren't able to find the end zone again. That final score is deceptively close-kicker...
