Packers: Earn Your Win Through Tampa Bay

I'm sick and tired of watching a good football team like the Green Bay Packers continuing to skip over their opponents in 2014. It happened with the Jets when they were down 21-3, thankfully they won. They were humbled by the Saints 44-23 in primetime on Sunday Night Football. Then they went on an onslaught of big wins including one over the New England Patriots, outscoring opponents...
