The Green Bay Packers have made the playoffs in each of the last three seasons since winning the Super Bowl. However, they have failed to get past the divisional round and have just one win in that time frame. The Packers want to change that fortunate this weekend.

In an interview with USA Today, Peterson said he believes Vikings coaches and players are behind him but that feelings in the organization are mixed after he was charged with felony child abuse.
The usual suspects — better known as the American audience — are started to wonder: Have we judged Peterson, Ray Rice or even Roger Goodell properly? Did we go to the trigger too quickly?
Peterson’s potential return to the Vikings is at the heart of a dispute between the NFL and the players’ association, and the star running back thinks the league is being unfair.
A person with knowledge of the hearing told The Associated Press on Thursday that Adrian Peterson will meet with the NFL early next week about possible reinstatement with the Minnesota Vikings.
