Green Bay Packers
New York Giants
Green Bay Packers superstar Aaron Rodgers continues to throw touchdowns at a prolific rate, even though no quarterback has been sacked more.
The New York Giants, meanwhile, are hopeful that Eli Manning's recent track record after bye weeks can help him avoid a career-worst fourth straight game without a TD pass.
The injury-plagued Packers are seeking a sixth straight victory Sunday night when they visit the Giants in a matchup of division leaders who have won the last two Super Bowls.
Green Bay (7-3) has used this streak to tie Chicago for first in the NFC North while New York (6-4) leads the East despite losing its last two games.
"Both teams this weekend, the last two Super Bowl winners, play," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. "Each is in the lead in their division. So it's got a tremendous and exciting format."
These teams last met in the divisional playoffs last season when Manning threw for 330 yards and three scores to lead New York to a 37-20 u...

MELTS DOWN LIKE VELVEETA
Packers tight end Jermichael Finley has made public his concerns about how Aaron Rodgers doesn't appear to be looking his way, saying "me and 12 just ain’t been on."
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It may not seem like it from outside the Packers' locker room, but quarterback Aaron Rodgers insists that his relationship with outspoken tight end Jermichael Finley is actually quite strong at the moment.
Finley has commented numerous times over the past year that there can sometimes be a lack of chemistry between he and the NFL's reigning Most Valuable...
HUG IT OUT
Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley still seems to have chemistry issues with quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He recently talked about them.
What did the Packers accomplish against Detroit on Sunday that they've done only rarely under coach Mike McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers? "There’s definitely something we can draw from," McCarthy said, looking ahead to a stretch run that could culminate with a berth in the rugged NFC playoffs.

The defensive line will have a big part in this.

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...
