2022 NFL Week 13: Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears

2022 NFL Week 13: Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears

Chris Sweda/Chicago Tribune/Tribune News Service via Aaron Rodgers is set to play in his second home: Soldier Field. The Green Bay Packers’ chances of making the playoffs are so slim that they almost don’t matter at all. According to FiveThirtyEight, Green Bay only has about a three percent chance of making the postseason. Don’t tell that to quarterback Aaron Rodgers, though. Despite all of the noise around fans wanting to get a look at backup passer Jordan Love, Rodgers told The Pat McAfee Show this week that he plans to play against the Chicago Bears on Sunday....

Packers promote S Innis Gaines to active roster, sign practice squad TE

Photo by Timothy T Ludwig/ Gaines played 18 special teams snaps vs the Eagles. Earlier today, the Green Bay Packers waived safety Johnathan Abram in what now looks like a one-for-one swap for former practice squad safety Innis Gaines. The Packers announced on Tuesday that they have promoted Gaines to the active roster, filling one of the two vacancies they have on their 53-man roster. Gaines, who has been with the team for two training camps, was waived with an injury settlement earlier in 2022. He returned to the Packers’ practice squad in Week 6, where he has been...

Packers waive S Johnathan Abram

Heidi Fang/Las Vegas Review-Journal/Tribune News Service via Abram was a healthy scratch vs the Eagles after playing back-to-back games on special teams. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero has reported that the Green Bay Packers will waive safety Johnathan Abram on Tuesday, a move that was foreshadowed by Green Bay’s inactives list against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Abram was a healthy scratch against the Eagles, while outside linebacker Justin Hollins — who was picked up on Wednesday — and tackle Luke Tenuta made their debuts for the Packers. Abram, a former...

NFC North Roundup, Week 13: Vikings could clinch division title as early as this Sunday

NFC North Roundup, Week 13: Vikings could clinch division title as early as this Sunday

Photo by Stephen Maturen/ Not since 2018 has a team other than the Packers won the NFC North. That could change on Sunday. The Green Bay Packers have won the NFC North each of the last three years, but their streak is about to come to an end. It could be official as soon as Sunday, as the Minnesota Vikings have a chance to knock the Packers out of the division title race with a win or a tie on Sunday. However, the Vikings can do more than just that — they can clinch the division for themselves on Sunday with a little bit of help from one of the other teams in the...

Aaron Rodgers on injury: I plan on playing this week

Photo by Michael Reaves/ “I got good news with the scans,” the quarterback had to say about his oblique injury. On Monday, Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur was non-commital on the status of quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who left Sunday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles with what was officially called an obliques injury. After the game, Rodgers stated that he was worried that he had a punctured lung or broken ribs, but that X-rays in the locker room were inconclusive on what his injury actually was. LaFleur stated that Rodgers was feeling better on...

Packers free cap space with Dean Lowry salary conversion

Packers free cap space with Dean Lowry salary conversion

Photo by Timothy T Ludwig/ Is an Elgton Jenkins extension coming? According to ESPN’s Field Yates, the Green Bay Packers have converted $1.5 million of defensive lineman Dean Lowry’s 2022 salary into a signing bonus, which means he will see that money in his bank account faster and will free north of $1.1 million in cap space on the Packers’ accounting. According to Spotrac, Green Bay was already top-10 in the league in available cap space at $6 million and the Lowry salary conversion should move them up a couple more spots. Lowry, notably, had the highest base...

Tuesday Cheese Curds: What’s the plan with Jordan Love?

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ The Love era, such as it is, may be about to start. What does that mean? The Packers never explicitly said they wanted Jordan Love to be the successor to Aaron Rodgers, but the message came through loud enough when they traded up to take him in the first round in 2020. But then there was an MVP season for Rodgers. And then another. And then a lucrative contract extension. And then the Packers were staring down the possibility of having to make a call on Jordan Love’s fifth-year option without really having seen him play. Now, it seems, Love is...

Packers Film Room: AJ Dillon has a big night vs Eagles

Packers Film Room: AJ Dillon has a big night vs Eagles

AJ Dillon had an explosive night with 90 yards on just 11 touches Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon made some dynamic plays through the air and on the ground while tallying 90 yards on just 11 touches for over eight yards per touch against the Philadelphia Eagles. Generally, the Packers will stress the perimeter on pin and pull or toss stretch with running back Aaron Jones and leave more of the inside work to Dillon. However, in their game against Philadelphia, Dillon had touches on wide zone, counter, toss stretch, and inside zone. Wide Zone Dillon’s first touch of...

Monday Night Football, Week 12: Steelers v. Colts picks & game thread

Photo by Joe Sargent/ Join us for the final game of week 12. Tonight, it’s an AFC battle on Monday Night Football between a pair of franchises trying to stay alive on the far fringes of the playoff hunt. The Pittsburgh Steelers and Indianapolis Colts are both fighting to stay alive in their respective divisions as well as in the conference’s Wild Card chase, and they meet in prime time tonight to close out week 12 around the NFL. This isn’t your old Roethlisberger-Manning rivalry game any more, however. In Pittsburgh, it’s a new quarterback taking over as rookie...

Packers will not make defensive coordinator change, says LaFleur

Photo by Larry Radloff/Icon Sportswire via “We work as a staff and collectively we’re all in this sucker together.” The Green Bay Packers gave up 363 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns against the Philadelphia Eagles on the national stage on Sunday night and it couldn’t have been worse timing for defensive coordinator Joe Barry. Barry was offered the Packers’ coordinator job in 2021 after then-Wisconsin defensive coordinator Jim Leonhard turned it down, leading to Barry getting his third chance to call defenses in the NFL. Earlier on Sunday, Leonhard...

LaFleur on sitting Rodgers: We have not even gone down that road

Photo by Amy Lemus/NurPhoto via It looks like Aaron Rodgers will start against Chicago, if he’s able to get cleared medically. The Green Bay Packers currently have a 4-8 record that has their playoff chances very low for 2022 but not at complete zero. After exiting Sunday Night Football with an oblique injury, quarterback Aaron Rodgers stated to the press that he will attempt to start for the Packers, at least until they are mathematically eliminated from the postseason. Since Week 6, Rodgers has also been playing through a broken thumb on his throwing hand that...

Packers Film Study: Jordan Love’s performance vs Eagles

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ A solid performance from the former first-round pick. The Green Bay Packers lost yet again in Week 12 to the Philadelphia Eagles, but fans finally got an update on the development of Jordan Love. After Aaron Rodgers exited the 40-33 loss with an oblique injury, the Packers were forced to roll out the third-year quarterback in the fourth quarter. The 24-year-old held his own, completing six of nine passes for 113 yards and a touchdown with a passer rating of 146.8. Had Green Bay’s defense been able to produce a stop, Love would have had a very...

Packers open up as 2.5-point favorites vs Bears

Chris Sweda/Chicago Tribune/Tribune News Service via The Bears still suck. A once proud rivalry has now turned into an exhibition that determines draft position. If the season ended today, the Chicago Bears would have the second overall pick in the 2023 draft while the Green Bay Packers would have the ninth. According to DraftKings, the Packers have opened up as 2.5-point favorites at Soldier Field this week as they attempt to keep their slim playoff hopes alive against the Bears. Based on the -140 moneyline, there’s an implied probability that Green Bay wins this...

Packers Week 12 Snap Counts: Eagles dominated possession on SNF

Packers Week 12 Snap Counts: Eagles dominated possession on SNF

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Tempo, turnovers, and short drives all led to the Packers being out-snapped nearly 2-to-1 on Sunday night. The flow of Sunday night’s game between the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles was truly bizarre, as the two teams combined for one of the more entertaining games of the 2022 NFL season. The Eagles won 40-33, but the snap counts between the two teams — as well as the time of possession — suggest that they should have dominated much more on the scoreboard. The Eagles ran 80 total plays on offense compared to the Packers’ 49 and...

The Repack: The Packers’ playoff hopes dwindle after loss to Eagles

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Has anyone contacted Jim Leonhard yet? We all knew what the magnitude and terms of Sunday Night Football were: The Green Bay Packers needed to win or their season was virtually over. A one-score loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, who have the best record in the NFL, is a nice moral victory but it doesn’t change the fact that the Packers now sit with a 4-8 record well behind the 8-3 Dallas Cowboys, 7-5 Washington Commanders and 6-5 Seattle Seahawks in the NFC wildcard race. According to FiveThirtyEight, Green Bay now has a three percent chance to...
