BEST OF MAXIM
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers veteran defensive back Charles Woodson has been ruled out for Sunday's regular-season finale in Minnesota, missing his ninth consecutive game.
Woodson broke his collarbone on Oct. 21 and coach Mike McCarthy expected the injury to keep the eight-time Pro Bowl selection out for six weeks. But, 10 weeks later, Woodson has still not been cleared by Green...

Peterson, who ran for 210 yards against the Packers on Dec. 2 at Lambeau Field, will pass Eric Dickerson's 28-year-old record of...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Aaron Rodgers grew up watching Steve Young scramble, stay alive in the pocket and connect on throws downfield several seconds after most NFL quarterbacks would have thrown the ball away. That is how Rodgers believes the position is best played, and it's worked well enough for him to result in a Super Bowl championship and a Most Valuable Player award before the...
The Green Bay Packers will admit that they respect Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. Having faced him so many times, they know what he is about, both as a player and a person.

Just don’t count the Packers...
