GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers got plenty of help. Adrian Peterson got none at all. The Green Bay Packers won a key NFC showdown against division rival Minnesota 23-14 on Sunday at Lambeau Field. With a win by the Packers (8-4) and a loss by Chicago (8-4), the Packers are tied for first place in the NFC North. The Vikings (6-6), meanwhile, are in deep trouble after losing for the fourth time in five games. "Everything's right in front of us," Rodgers said. "We still have the Bears at Chicago and the division very well could come down to that meeting. We have Detroit next week. We've got to go win our home games and get a couple wins on the road." Rodgers completed 27 of 35 passes for 286 yards with one touchdown and one interception but received a big helping hand from running backs Alex Green and James Starks, who combined for 124 rushing yards to help a balanced attack. Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder, on the other hand, went about two-...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- For the Minnesota Vikings (6-5) to make the playoffs this season, they'll need to win at least one of their two upcoming games with the division-rival Packers (7-4). The first of those two NFC North showdowns is Sunday at Lambeau Field, with both teams' regular-season schedules concluding four weeks later in Minnesota.

GREEN BAY, Wis. Adrian Peterson continues to defy logic. Rushing for 210 yards, including a career-best 82-yard touchdown run, the ultra-talented running back that's less than a year removed from blowing out his knee was the only reason Minnesota was even in Sunday's game.
Yet somehow, as ridiculous as it sounds, Peterson tried to...
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers couldn’t be more excited that the Seattle Seahawks rallied back to beat the Chicago Bears 23-17 on Sunday.
Considering it was the same Seahawks team that beat the Packers on Monday Night Football earlier this season on a phantom touchdown catch during the replacement referee era.
With the Bears loss and the Packers win over the Vikings...

It was a solid rebound from their blowout loss to the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers are back in first place in the NFC North.
Thanks to their 23-14 win over the Minnesota Vikings and the Seattle Seahawks’ 23-17 overtime win against the Chicago Bears, the Packers find themselves right...
The best way for the Packers to stop Adrian Peterson on Sunday was their 18-play drive in the fourth quarter.
The Green Bay Packers went on an 18-play, 73-yard drive that consumed 11 minutes to start the fourth quarter and bury the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
When the marathon drive was over, the Packers led 23-14 with 4 minutes to play. There was little hope that poor Christian...
No disrespect to the Minnesota Vikings who are one of the better stories in the NFL and NFC North particularly. Still they are without their best receiver in Percy Harvin and are riding a very young and inexperienced quarterback in Christian Ponder.
The one thing the Vikings (6-5) do have is Adrian Peterson who has miraculously come back from a nasty knee injury to put up MVP-like...
GREEN BAY, Wis. A day after the Packers defeated the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field, defensive coordinator Dom Capers, special teams coordinator Shawn Slocum and offensive coordinator Tom Clements addressed several topics from the 23-14 win.
Here are three question-and-answer highlights from each coordinator:

It is just nine more days until Aaron Rodgers’ Day (!), but the reigning MVP’s 29th birthday took place Sunday on a glorious afternoon where the Green Bay Packers took over first place in the NFC North.
As the game ended and the players walked off the field, Rodgers showed a lot of emotion when he attempted a self-forced piggy back on tight end Jermichael Finley.Considering...
Career-long touchdown run? Check. Franchise day against hated rival? Check. Best 12-game start in Vikings history? Check. Those impressive feats and more were part of Adrian Peterson’s comeback tour. Plus, more than a dozen game-day notes that tell the tale of the 23-14 loss.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- With one month until the playoffs begin, the Packers showed Sunday that they still have a lot of work to do to become serious Super Bowl threats. But this was certainly an improvement over how they played a week ago, so coach Mike McCarthy's team is starting to make a few of the necessary adjustments.

The Minnesota Vikings' playoff chances are slipping away with each missed opportunity, such as Sunday's 24-13 loss at the Green Bay Packers.
Green Bay and the Chicago Bears (8-4) are tied atop of the NFC North, with the Packers owning a tiebreaker advantage against Chicago. Minnesota (6-6) is a game out of the playoffs after the Seattle Seahawks (7-5) beat the Bears Sunday...
Was Adrian Peterson’s epic touchdown run, Robert Griffin III’s Monday Night Football debut or the touching leadership of Kansas City Chiefs’ coach Romeo Crennel the most memorable selection from the 13th week of the 2012-2013 season?
The pictures in this gallery say it all.

Matt Ryan was on fire for most of the season. He had 17 points or more in 7 out of 8 games this season, including games of 31, 21, 24, 23, and 26. He has been a must start fantasy option until the last 3 weeks, where his production has fallen off big time.
In the last 3 games, he has thrown only 2 TDs vs 6 INTs. Ryan is only averaging 9 points per contest which included tilts vs...
