He is not better than Joe Montana or Johnny Unitas, and he hasn’t had the longevity to his career that allows him to go by Peyton Manning, Tom Brady or even Brett Favre. But soon Aaron Rodgers will probably be ahead of them all.
This is not because Rodgers beat Brady last week. The game was whisker-close and you could easily argue that the Patriots would win a rematch on a neutral field. This is about stats, scent, and sense.
Since we are upon our great day of gratitude, a pretext for gorging on poultry and then taking our swollen torsos to the nearest television for some football, let’s look to sports for reasons to give thanks.
There’s a reason why you should always expect the unexpected when it comes to the NFL on a Sunday.
It’s heating up in Green Bay. Say what? Yep, the Packers couldn’t be hotter.
While the local teams are searching for answers, the NFL has seen some startling performances through the first half of the season.
It was another Thursday night blowout, as the Packers dominated the Vikings 42-10 last night in Green Bay. The Packers moved to 3-2, while Minnesota is 2-3, struggling on offense without Teddy Bridgewater, who was inactive with a sprained ankle.
Even Julius Peppers found his way across the goal line through the mist against the Minnesota Vikings.
These two bitter rivals will lock horns at Lambeau Field tonight in a key early-season NFC North showdown.
Will this contest between NFC North rivals be the first competitive Thursday night game of the season?
For a moment, it seemed as if the Jets had tied the Packers. Touchdown — Jeremy Kerley with about 5 minutes left to the game. One problem…
Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls will likely start for the Jets at Green Bay, but Dee Milliner could play a significant role in the secondary, head coach Rex Ryan said on Friday.
The Jets respect Aaron Rodgers, but they’re not about to go cower in a corner. Stopping the Green Bay Packers’ all-world quarterback will be the focal point of Gang Green’s approach Sunday when they travel to Lambeau Field looking to go 2-0.
The formula for the New York Jets to beat the Green Bay Packers is quite obvious: establish the power running game on offense and apply consistent pressure on defense.
On Sunday the Green Bay Packers look to get their first win of the season following a very disappointing effort against the Seattle Seahawks. The Packers will be facing a New York Jets team that dominated the Oakland Raiders with their power running game and stout defense.
