GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Finally, the Packers have gotten through a game without a player being fined.
The streak of four consecutive games ended when safety Morgan Burnett did not receive a fine from the NFL this week.
In Sunday's win over the Detroit Lions, Burnett was flagged for unnecessary roughness early in the third quarter when he hit wide receiver Calvin Johnson.
"I felt like I was just making a play on the ball, trying to make a stop," Burnett said Friday at his locker. "Then when I saw it on film, I felt like, in my opinion, that you could see that I wasn't trying to helmet-to-helmet the guy. I felt like everything would be fine, that there wouldn't be a fine or anything like that."
Packers tight end Ryan Taylor was fined 21,000 for a non-flagged block on Nov. 4 that the NFL deemed illegal. In the next game, linebacker Brad Jones was fined 15,750 for hitting Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford in the head area. Then, safety Jerron McMillian was fi...

Finals have brought on a crazy week so please excuse the briefness of this article.
The Green Bay Packers will look to wrap up the division title against the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

We're still reeling from the unspeakable tragedy that has the nation and the world mourning the loss of 20 children and 6 adults in Newtown, CT.
The NFL and it's players are also grieving the senselessness, having dealt with it's share of tragedy this season, although nothing comparable to what transpired this morning. It's hard to think of mere sports events at...
The Green Bay Packers expect to have linebacker Clay Matthews back in the lineup Sunday against the Chicago Bears.
Matthews is listed as probable for the NFC North showdown. The team's top pass rusher has missed the last four games because of a hamstring injury.
Green Bay could be forced to make more changes on their offensive line. Right guard Josh Sitton (hip) is questionable...
Two days after releasing him, the Green Bay Packers have signed linebacker Vic So'oto to their practice squad.
So'oto was released Tuesday to make room for defensive tackle Jordan Miller. The Packers needed more depth after playing Sunday night's game against Detroit with just four defensive linemen. So'oto's return Thursday was expected, and his locker was left...
Green Bay Packers (9-4) at Chicago Bears (8-5)
I’ve called the Packers overrated before. This was because they were really banged up with injuries and as a result, they weren’t really playing as well as people thought they are. Injuries to Cedric Benson and now James Starks left the mediocre Alex Green as the feature back, running behind an offensive line that struggles both...
The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers boast one of the most intense rivalries in all of football. So, you can only imagine what everyday life is like for a displaced Packers fan living in Chicago.Such is the case for 8-year old and second-grader Mason. Her parents hail from the great state of Wisconsin, which means she and her sisters were born Packers fans. Recently, Bears mascot...
Earlier this week, Green Bay Packer tight end Jermichael Finley came out and said the Bears are a better team without linebacker Brian Urlacher on the field.
Bears linebacker Lance Briggs came to the defense of Urlacher, but Urlacher also decided to fire back at Finley.
“Just like a couple of years ago, I think, he tore his ACL and the Packers were actually better without him,”...
