When the NFL schedule was revealed, the Packers’ was about as quirky as could be: Green Bay opened with two on the road, then returned home for four in a row with a Week 4 bye mixed in. That stretch ends tonight against the Bears, and then...

Minnesota broke Green Bay’s stranglehold on the NFC East last season, and don’t be surprised if these two battle for the top spot again. The Vikings took a wide receiver in the first round of the draft to give quarterback Teddy...

When the Green Bay Packers returned to work for the start of their offseason program in April, Mike McCarthy felt a bit like an overmatched substitute teacher in a class full of unruly high schoolers. With perfect attendance — all of the 63...

Since Green Bay couldn’t stop the Arizona juggernaut last Sunday in the desert, it must now conquer the Vikings for a second time in the season or end up consigned to a road trip during the first week of the postseason. It’s not the...

A win for the Arizona Cardinals (12-2) this afternoon would clinch the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoffs. Ironically, Green Bay is the only team that can mathematically swap places with Arizona, giving this matchup added significance. A victory...

Thanksgiving Day was just the appetizer for Week 12 NFL and fantasy action. For the first time since Week 3 all 32 teams are in action, which means we still have 13 games to go between Sunday and Monday. Fantasy-wise, it also means that you...
