Packers: Team ready for playoff test that Giants will bring

For the season, Rodgers has the otherworldly numbers of 40 touchdown passes and only seven interceptions. I'm excited about it.

It will certainly be a memorable atmosphere in downtown Detroit, but this is actually a scenario Lions fans were hoping to avoid. Seven out of nine ESPN experts believe the Packers are going to win this game.

EAGLES 27, COWBOYS 13 Tony Romo threw his first touchdown pass in almost 14 months and the playoff-bound Cowboys played it safe. visiting The Cowboys (13-3) locked up the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs when the Eagles (7-9) beat the Giants on December 22. He has two TDs in his past three home games vs.

Both teams will launch offensive assaults, as both are prone to producing high point totals with Aaron Rodgers and company on Green Bay's side, and Matthew Stafford and his co-horts on the other.

Perry, in the midst of a career year, was far from the only Packers player who missed an opportunity to make a key play early in November. NY stunned the No. 2-seeded Packers 23-20 in overtime in the NFC Championship during the 2007 season and steamrollered a Green Bay squad that went a league-best 15-1 in the 2011 regular season by a score of 37-20 in the divisional round. "I don't know the time that the TVs go off by heart".

"That's what you have to do sometimes as a leader", Rodgers says.

Gary Cahill wants club record for wins when Chelsea play Bournemouth
For Bournemouth, Nathan Ake will have to sit this one out as he can not take field against his parent club. Junior Stanislas, who has contributed to six of their 22 goals is nearing return from his injury.

"That's the confidence he has in our team and our offense and himself", Green Bay receiver Jordy Nelson said. We understand what we need to do to get to this point. Later, several Denver players said coach Gary Kubiak will be stepping down for health reasons.

Detroit responded with a touchdown of their own, and even got break on their final drive of the second half. "My injuries have definitely subsided, the rehab has continued but I'm healing up at the right time".

Rodgers declined to compare this Packers team to the 2010 title team. However, following the injuries to Randall in the third quarter and then Rollins and Dorleant, Burnett was moved to a nickel cornerback role while Micah Hyde was asked to move out to the boundary from his usual slot position.

"He came in and said 'We're going to play".

Awaiting the winners of those games will be the top seeds: No. 1 Patriots and No. 2 Chiefs in the AFC, No. 1 Cowboys and No. 2 Falcons in the NFC. They'll host either Miami, Kansas City or Oakland in a wild-card playoff next weekend.

Still, McAdoo's answer upon facing the Packers and mentor Mike McCarthy Sunday night in Green Bay is illuminating, not for its blandness - "I try to leave feelings out of it". Jacksonville (3-13) matched the second-worst record in franchise history after blocking a punt with 1:54 to go and breaking a 17-17 tie with 1:33 left. The public persona remained unflappable, covering the private one he doesn't want us to see. That means taking care of the football, finding some semblance of a running game and capitalizing with touchdowns once they get into the red zone. Detroit's has been particularly anemic, ranking 30th in the league.
