GREEN BAY, Wis. -- If the Packers are going to win their sixth consecutive game with a victory over the New York Giants on Sunday, quarterback Aaron Rodgers will need to perform better than he did last year in the playoffs when Eli Manning & Co. ended Green Bay's season prematurely.
In his weekly meeting with the media, Rodgers talked about a growing rivalry with the Giants, leading the NFC North right now at 7-3 and much more.
Five question-and-answer highlights:
1. Is this developing into a rivalry with the Giants?
RODGERS: We played five times now in the last four, five years. Obviously, twice last year and once the year before, so we're becoming a little more familiar with them. They're a great team, very well coached, a lot of big-time players both veteran players and young guys who are stepping up and playing well. It's always a test when you're playing against a quarterback like Eli Manning, you have to score some points with the weapons they have....
BEST OF MAXIM
University of California football coach Jeff Tedford was fired Tuesday in his 11th season at the school, and his most successful former player didn't waste any time coming to his defense.

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...
The more he talks, the more Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley makes himself sound like the scorned ex-girlfriend of Aaron Rodgers. There was a point in time a few years back where it looked like Finley could emerge as Rodgers’ favorite target and one of the best tight ends in the league. Now, any day with multiple catches is an above average one for the former Texas...
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.
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Pro Football Writer The Minnesota Vikings must play perhaps their best yet this season to emerge from the last six games with a playoff spot, let alone a winning record.
The defensive line will have a big part in this.
They visit Chicago on Sunday and Green Bay the week after, facing the NFC North co-leaders...

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...
