Green Bay Packers
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It's still early in the season, but the Packers (2-3) are approaching must-win territory. Unfortunately for reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and his team, they have to try to get back to .500 on the road this Sunday against the undefeated Houston Texans (5-0).
Not only has Green Bay already lost more games this season than it did throughout all of last year (playoffs included), but now the on-field struggles have led some players to assign blame elsewhere. The Packers' wide receivers defiantly insisted this week that they're creating separation downfield and are therefore not at fault for the decline in offensive production. The typically unflappable Rodgers defended his downward statistical trend by saying, "There's plenty of guys that wish they had the kind of numbers I have."
Tight end Jermichael Finley added to the turmoil by again questioning his chemistry with Rodgers and then seemingly taking a subtle shot at Green Bay's offens...

The Houston Texans found...
According to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Alex Green will get the first crack at the Green Bay Packers’ starting running back job while Cedric Benson is out.Packers head coach Mike McCarthy also confirmed that they’ll ride the hot hand between both Green and James Starks.
Aaron Rodgers threw two touchdown passes and the Green Bay Packers led the Houston Texans 14-0 after one quarter on Sunday night.
Jordy Nelson got past Johnathan Joseph for a 41-yard touchdown reception to put the Packers on top 7-0 early in the quarter. Green Bay had a fourth-and-3 on the play before the touchdown, but rookie DeVier Posey was offside, giving the Packers a first...
After picking up a huge sack for the Houston Texans, J.J. Watt does what most defenders have done this year, and mocked the “Discount Double Check” or World Title belt celebration that Aaron Rodgers does. This time, the defensive end put his own unique spin on the celebration by throwing the belt away and saluting the crowd.Via: @cjzero
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- There's defiance in their voices -- a sense of frustration that some of the blame is falling on them. The Packers' wide receivers believe they've done their part this season. They've watched the film of the first five games, and it all checks out. They see plenty of separation between themselves and the cornerbacks assigned to cover them. They look...
Our weekly 21-point game preview leads off with the matchup within the matchup: J.J. Watt's excellence in batting down passes against Aaron Rodgers' excellence in avoiding deflections. Plus, Clay Matthews, Duane Brown, Andre Johnson and much, much more in what is guaranteed to be the biggest and best preview in the world.
The Packers head into week 6 (2-3) facing debatably the NFL’s best team in the Houston Texans. Last year the Packers only lost once in the regular season and to the shock of many 2-4 might be staring at them right in the face.
That being said let’s not right off the Packers this week just yet. Vegas currently have the Packers as 3 point underdogs against the hot Texans...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The relationship between Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and tight end Jermichael Finley frequently boils down to one word: chemistry.
In Finley's mind, chemistry between the two is often directly related to his personal statistics and those of the offense as a whole. With Green Bay's 2-3 record and an offense ranked 21st in the NFL in total yards and...

This isn't going to be an easy win. On offense, the Patriots have scored more points than any other team in the league, and they're in the top ten in passing and rushing yardage, although it's primarily the threat of their passing attack that's kept their run game effective. The Seahawks have a top five defensive unit, but if they want to be known as one of the...
