The Packers started off slow but are now within striking distance of the Bears. Can they capitalize?
After going a red hot 13-1 in week 11, I went 2-1 on Thanksgiving day. For the season that makes it 106-57. I'm still in striking distance of .750 for the season.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers again have a defense that they believe can win games for them."You know, last year, there weren't many games where you'd say that," Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers said. "Of course, our offense was playing so well, it was such a different scenario."This year, the Aaron Rodgers-led offense isn't...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The last time the Packers and New York Giants met, all the positive moments from Green Bay's nearly perfect 15-1 regular season became relatively meaningless.
