Green Bay Packers go with a balanced look in win over the Lions

Balance was the word of the day for the Green Bay Packers on a snowy night at Lambeau Field.

A breakdown of 32 rushing plays compared to 24 passing plays helped the Packers (9-4) overcome the Detroit Lions by the score of 27-20.

Even the famous and tremendously funny Will Ferrell was digging the Packers on this night with his winter knit Packers cap and a performance of “Roll Out The Barrell.”

An offensive explosion which seems imminent whenever the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions meet didn’t happen. What did happen was a back-and-forth game dictated by turnovers.

The Packers (7-3) Aaron Rodgers wasn’t perfect, but his throws were on the money when they counted as he led his team to a fourth-quarter, 24-20 comeback win.

The injury-riddled Packers beat the Cardinals for their fourth straight win

After beating the Arizona Cardinals by the score of 31-17, the Packers (6-3) are legitimately without 11 starting players. New injuries to WR Jordy Nelson, OL Bryan Bulaga and LB/DE Clay Matthews only adds salt to an open wound as the team enters their bye week. [Read more…]

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has been sacked more than groceries. Actually, he’s been sacked more than David Carr in his Houston Texans days, who was sacked even more than groceries.

Cutler may have the worst offensive tackles in NFL history blocking for him this week against the Green Bay Packers (4th in the league in sacks), now that the self-nicknamed “Jew Bear” starting tackle Gabe Carimi is expected to miss the game because of a partially dislocated kneecap. Good luck trying to block Clay Matthews and company short-handed.

Cutler made comments today indicating he’s well aware he may not last the entire season, given how ineffective the line is in front of him.
