The Jacksonville Jaguars lost to the Green Bay Packers 24-15. The Jaguars went into the confines of Lambeau Field and emerged not victorious, but not demoralized either. The game still had its hero and zero. HeroDavon House and Dezmon Moses are the heroes of the game. While the Packers' offense is known for Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Donald Driver and Greg Jennings; it is House and Moses who are the heroes of the game.House and Moses are members of the Packers' special team. In the second quarter House blocked a Bryan Anger punt. Moses then fell on the ball in the end zone for a score. This was the first blocked punt by the Packers since September 2003. And it was the first blocked punt returned for a touchdown since December 1990.This is how heroes are made.ZeroThere is no getting around it. Blaine Gabbert and his receiving corps are the zeroes of the game. This is the same Gabbert who had career highs in attempts with 49, completions with 27, and yards with...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson has officially been listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.Nelson injured his hamstring Wednesday and was unable to practice Thursday and Friday. Coach Mike McCarthy said that Nelson would have to pass a series of tests from the medical staff in order to be cleared. Nelson was listed as questionable...
The Green Bay Packers will already be without several
high-profile players during today’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and
Peter King of Sports Illustrated reports wide receiver Jordy Nelson is also
unlikely to suit up.
Jordy Nelson (hamstring) is questionable,
but SI's Peter King believes the wide receiver is unlikely to play against the
The Jaguars face a tricky situation with disgruntled, and now injured running back Maurice Jones-Drew. Jones-Drew held out of all of camp, seeking a new deal, and is set to make $5 million next season, the final year of his deal. Several other teams expect he may end up hitting the free agent market.
Jones-Drew will miss several weeks with a foot injury, a new deal is highly unlikely...
First Greg Jennings, now Jordy Nelson.
The Green Bay Packers are without their top two receivers after Nelson was declared inactive for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He injured his hamstring during practice Wednesday. Randall Cobb, who followed his first 100-yard receiving game with a pair of touchdown catches last weekend, starts in his place.
The “Toucherception in Seattle” still haunts the Green Bay Packers season
At 5-3 it wouldn’t be hard to find 12 different opinions on the Green Bay Packers season. A few would be positive, a majority of them would be negative, but the conclusion is all the same. This is not the 2011 Green Bay Packers, and they aren’t even close to the team they used to be just a...
Packers receiver Donald Driver will be the No. 3 receiver this week with Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson sidelined by injury.Fantasy Spin:Driver has always been an Aaron Rodgers favorite, but the Packers haven't used him much because of all the talent they have at wideout. He might get a half dozen looks in Week 8 and be a low-end fantasy value.
Aaron Rodgers went back to an old favorite, connecting with Donald Driver on a 4-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to seal Green Bay's 24-15 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
Rodgers threw two touchdowns, passing Bart Starr for second place on Green Bay's all-time list, and Dezman Moses gave the Packers their first touchdown on a blocked punt in almost...
Usually a nine point victory leaves teams with a warm and fuzzy feeling in the days following the game, but that's not the attitude Packers fans took away from the team's victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars yesterday, and it's not the position tight end Jermichael Finley took in his post game remarks.
"It's not ugly, it's nasty," tight end Jermichael...
Coming into the game Jacksonville was a 15.5 point underdog but it came down to a 4th down Jacksonville failure that sealed the Green Bay 24-15 victory.With the score 21-15 and 2:59 on the clock Jacksonville faced 4th-and-4 at the Green Bay 44, after rookie Casey Hayward made a fantastic open field tackle on Justin Blackmon on the previous play forcing the 4th down. On a drive that...
Wide receiver Mike Thomas has been traded from Jacksonville to Detroit in exchange for an undisclosed draft pick.
Thomas could not pass Cecil Shorts on the Jaguars depth chart, and we dont expect him to benefit from a fresh start with Lions. So in other words, Thomas should not be a threat to Titus Young or Ryan Broyles from a fantasy perspective.
The Jacksonville Jaguars (1-5) travel to historic Lambeau Field on Sunday to face the Green Bay Packers (4-3), in what will undoubtedly be Jacksonville's biggest test this season. With Maurice Jones-Drew out of the lineup this week, after sustaining a foot injury against the Raiders last week, RB Rashad Jennings will get the start. If the Jaguars hope to have any chance in this...
Green Bay Packers cornerback Davon House was recognized as the NFC's top Week 8 performer.

Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey took the blame for the costly blocked punt in the second quarter that gave the Packers a touchdown in their 24-15 victory over the Jaguars.
He said the Jaguars players were too slow in setting up the play and gave Davon House time to abandon Kevin Elliott on the outside and rush in and block Bryan Angers punt. Dezmon Moses recovered in the end zone...
