Packers have loftier goals than simply winning NFC North

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The atmosphere in the Green Bay Packers locker room was very workmanlike in the aftermath of winning the NFC North with Sunday's win over Detroit.

John Kuhn had the distinction of scoring the first touchdown of the 2014 NFL season. And while he remains a Green Bay fan favorite and reliable goal-line option, it’s hard to blame oddsmakers for making Kuhn a long shot to score the inaugural touchdown of the year.
