Green Bay Packers
It was a win the Packers needed for many reasons, and they got it. Now at 7-3 with a 2-0 record in the division, Green Bay -- with four more games remaining against the NFC North -- controls its own playoff future throughout the rest of the season. It also sends Detroit (4-6) into a nearly impossible situation of making the postseason, therefore turning it into a three-team race for the division title.
Five things we learned from the Packers' 24-20 win over the Lions:
1. Aaron Rodgers leads a rare fourth-quarter comeback
Rodgers hates the fourth-quarter comeback statistic. His main point of contention, and it's an apt one to make, is that if a team is winning entering the fourth quarter -- as the Packers so often have been in recent seasons -- then it's impossible for a quarterback to look good in this category. Rodgers had only four of them in his career entering Sunday's game, two fewer than Mr. Fourth Quarter Comeback, Tim Tebow -- a quarterback with only 14 ca...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Green Bay Packers snatched a victory from the Detroit Lions Sunday afternoon.
Aaron Rodgers’ touchdown pass to Randall Cobb with just less than two minutes to go in the game was the game winner and improved the Packers to 7-3 and increased their winning streak to five games.
Green Bay’s defense was the star of the game, as they made key plays and created four turnovers, turning...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- This is the first of five upcoming divisional games the Packers will conclude their regular season with, and it's one they need to win. With a 6-3 record, Green Bay can't afford a setback coming off its bye week, especially with the race in the NFC North so close.
If the Packers are able to go into Detroit and win, they can essentially eliminate the 4...

Aaron Rodgers is a pretty sensitive guy.
Maybe not quite as sensitive as his interview on “60 Minutes” made him seem, but a caring and compassionate person nonetheless. Rodgers showed off his sensitive side yet again recently, as the Green Bay Packers quarterback teamed up with the MACC — Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer — Fund to help raise awareness for the work...
The Detroit Lions have watched Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers rise to league stardom on the field -- and off the field, with the endless "Discount Double Check" commercials. Although they have respect for their NFC counterparts, as one Lions defender stated, "there's no love lost between the two of us."
The Green Bay Packers use four turnovers, five sacks, and alate touchdown tosneak out of Detroit with a four point victory to extend their league leading winning streak to six.With what seems like half the team injured and literally half of the starting squad out with injury, Green Bay was able to make just enough plays to escape Detroit with a 24-20 victory, including five sacks...
M.D. Jennings caught the deflected pass, and there was no doubt about this interception.
Then it was simply a matter of how far he could return it.
''The ball was tipped and I was in the right position to make a play on the ball,'' the Green Bay defensive back said. ''I saw a bunch of offensive lineman. I was like `Man, I can't let an offensive lineman...
In the unofficial start to the second half of the NFL season for the Green Bay Packers following the team's bye week, the schedule-makers begin to serve up a heapin' plateful of NFC North Division opponents. Five of the Pack's final seven games are within the division. The NFL has finally decided to create a schedule that keeps things interesting right until the end of...
Randall Cobb led Green Bay in receiving Sunday with 74 yards on nine catches.Fantasy Spin:He hauled in the game-winning touchdown on a 22-yard strike from Aaron Rodgers with a minute and 55 seconds remaining in the game. It was Cobb's sixth touchdown in his last four games. At this point, we'd consider the second-year receiver a must-start.
The performance during the last five games has been a bit like the six-game run to a Super Bowl championship in 2010. Two years ago, Aaron Rodgers and the offense weren't great every week. It's the same story this year, but a young and improving defense has come to the rescue.
This Sunday the Lions welcome in the Green Bay Packers to Ford Field as Detroit looks to string some wins together in hopes of making a late season run at the playoffs. However this is certainly a Packers team that has found itself after a 2-3 start to the season. Since then Green Bay has turned in an impressive win in Houston and taken care of business with St. Louis, Jacksonville...
Tried to take a cocky risk going against Peyton Manning and got burned big time. My first loss of the year puts me at 8-1 on the season, which ain’t too shabby.
Home Team in CAPS

Sometimes 12-years with a College Football program is too much. In fact in major conference college football it often is.
12-years for Jeff Tedford at Cal was exactly that: Too long.
Tedford was fired Tuesday morning as the Golden Bears limped through a 3-9 season. And yes, the school owes him money. A lot of money. Somewhere in the neighborhood of $7 million for the next three...
