Kenny Clark, Bryan Bulaga among missing Packers at week 15 Wednesday practice

Kenny Clark, Bryan Bulaga among missing Packers at week 15 Wednesday practice

If Clark’s injury is significant, that will be another huge blow to an already-thin Packers line. Jason Spriggs may be in for a long afternoon on Sunday. Based on the Green Bay Packers’ first injury report of the week from Wednesday, the team’s backup offensive tackle appears headed for the starting lineup and a matchup with Khalil Mack this weekend. That is because starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga missed practice on Wednesday with his ongoing knee injury. That issue kept him out of last Sunday’s win over the Atlanta Falcons, and it is now threatening to keep him inactive once...

NFL has an ideal opportunity to send Packers to London in 2019 but might not take it

NFL has an ideal opportunity to send Packers to London in 2019 but might not take it

With the league’s announcement of the home teams for next year’s games, it seemed a perfect time to get Green Bay to the UK. But the NFL may still screw it up anyway. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is on record saying he wants to play in London before he retires. Rodgers spoke of that possibility when discussing his “bucket list” a few years ago, but the Green and Gold have yet to make a trip overseas. That could all change in 2019. On Wednesday, the NFL announced the home teams for the five International Series games next season, which will consist of four games in...

Packers’ David Bakhtiari & Corey Linsley rated among 15 best OL in the NFL

Packers’ David Bakhtiari & Corey Linsley rated among 15 best OL in the NFL

We all know how good Bakh has been, but let’s take a moment to acknowledge Linsley for an excellent 2018 campaign. The Green Bay Packers landed a single offensive lineman on the NFL Top 100 list this summer, as left tackle David Bakhtiari showed up on the list at #91. For fans who watch him week in and week out, that ranking was absurdly low, putting him fifth among offensive tackles and seventh overall among all offensive linemen. However, Bakhtiari has a much more appropriate ranking on a list this week. On Tuesday, Pro Football Focus published a ranking of the 25 best offensive linemen...

MNF, Week 14: Loser of Vikings-Seahawks will be vulnerable in NFC

MNF, Week 14: Loser of Vikings-Seahawks will be vulnerable in NFC

Tonight’s winner will take a big step toward a Wild Card berth, but the loser will be very much on the bubble. The teams currently sitting in the two Wild Card positions in the NFC meet tonight on Monday Night Football, as the 5th-place Seahawks face the 6th-place Vikings. Neither team will drop out of playoff position with a loss in this game, but the winner will take a lead for the fifth seed. With a morass of underachieving 6-7 teams (and one at 5-7-1) all battling for position behind these two teams, tonight feels like a game where the winner will all but lock up a postseason...

Packers should bring back Reggie McKenzie after his firing by Raiders

Packers should bring back Reggie McKenzie after his firing by Raiders

The Packers should offer McKenzie a consulting job for the remainder of 2018 before finding him a permanent position in the offseason. The Green Bay Packers’ 2018 offseason saw a significant brain drain in the team’s front office. After Ted Thompson rode off into the sunset as a glorified area scout, Brian Gutekunst got the vacant general manager job and Eliot Wolf departed for the Cleveland Browns. Alonzo Highsmith went with him, as the team was deprived of two of its longtime personnel men in Gutekunst’s first year on the job. Today, however, an excellent scout with deep Packers...

2018 NFC Playoff Picture: Packers’ needs are clear after week 14

2018 NFC Playoff Picture: Packers’ needs are clear after week 14

We’ve called Green Bay’s postseason dreams dead for a few weeks now, but there remains a possibility for them to sneak into the playoffs. The Green Bay Packers are still alive. They’re on life support, to be sure, but there is still a feasible path for them to make a run at the postseason. However, much of the help that the team needs to pull for down the stretch will depend on the result of tonight’s game between the Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks. Teams around the NFC will be watching that contest closely. Those two squads sit in the Wild Card spots right now and will stay...

Packers Week 14 Snap Counts: Backup linemen step in to help Green Bay to victory

Packers Week 14 Snap Counts: Backup linemen step in to help Green Bay to victory

Lucas Patrick protected Aaron Rodgers in more ways than one this week. The Green Bay Packers got a big 34-20 victory on Sunday over the Atlanta Falcons, giving Joe Philbin a win in his first game as the team’s interim head coach. It wasn’t a big win because the Packers are still in the thick of the playoff race, though they are still mathematically alive. Instead, it seems big for the confidence of the team, giving the players and fans belief that the problems the team had dealt with all season are indeed fixable. The Packers got big contributions from three reserves on the offensive...

Monday Curds: Packers fight through adversity to get Philbin a big win

Monday Curds: Packers fight through adversity to get Philbin a big win

The Packers could have rolled over on Sunday, but they rallied to put in one of their most complete performances of the year. The Green Bay Packers went into kickoff on Sunday with an interim head coach, three starting offensive linemen inactive, and playing an opponent that has dominated them over the past few years, albeit a team that is arguably even more disappointing than the Packers this season. For the first time since before the bye week, the Packers showed resilience in the face of adversity. A long opening drive by the Atlanta Falcons — ending in a touchdown to Julio Jones —...

Aaron Rodgers sets NFL record for most passes without an interception on TD to Cobb

Aaron Rodgers sets NFL record for most passes without an interception on TD to Cobb

A 24-yard touchdown gives Rodgers the new record. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has another record in the books. Rodgers has thrown 359 consecutive passes without being intercepted, a new all-time high for an NFL player. Even better, Rodgers’ record-breaking attempt was a touchdown pass. Rodgers hit Randall Cobb in the end zone for a 24-yard touchdown, giving the Packers a 27-7 lead on the Atlanta Falcons. Take a look at the pass that gave Rodgers the record here: P-E-R-F-E-C-T.That's the best way to describe this @aaronrodgers12 TD pass to @rcobb18 : FOX #GoPackGo...

Packers vs. Falcons Second Half Game Thread

Packers vs. Falcons Second Half Game Thread

Green Bay will receive the second-half kickoff. The Green Bay Packers’ offense got off to a very good start today under interim head coach Joe Philbin, who is calling offensive plays for the first time in two decades. Green Bay marched straight down the field on their opening drive for a touchdown, with Aaron Rodgers looking locked in and Davante Adams getting into the end zone. That made it look like the game would be a shootout early on, as it came immediately after an easy touchdown drive by the Falcons. However, the Packers’ defense picked up their play on the Falcons’ second...

Packers’ Bashaud Breeland records pick-six off Falcons’ Matt Ryan

Packers’ Bashaud Breeland records pick-six off Falcons’ Matt Ryan

Green Bay now leads 17-7 in the second quarter. The Green Bay Packers’ defense has struggled to create turnovers this season, but cornerback Bashaud Breeland came up with a big one in the second quarter on Sunday. With the Atlanta Falcons facing a third-and-four at their own 14-yard line, Breeland identified the route being run by tight end Austin Hooper. Breaking quickly on Matt Ryan’s throw to the right sideline, Breeland easily intercepted the pass and returned it untouched to the end zone for a 22-yard touchdown return. .@Bree2Land6 takes the INT to the HOUSE! #ATLvsGB #GoPackGo...

Davante Adams scores 7-yard TD on Packers' first drive without Mike McCarthy

Davante Adams scores 7-yard TD on Packers' first drive without Mike McCarthy

Green Bay's elite receiver put them on the board early against Atlanta. No Mike McCarthy? No problem. That was the case on the Green Bay Packers' first offensive series of the game on Sunday as the team takes on the Atlanta Falcons. Interim head coach Joe Philbin inherited play calling duties as well as the head coach position after McCarthy was fired last Sunday, and he called a nice opening drive. After a pair of early receptions from Equanimious St. Brown, Davante Adams took over. He picked up a big 21-yard gain to convert a third-and-two opportunity, then found the end zone by...

Packers vs. Falcons First Half Game Thread

Packers vs. Falcons First Half Game Thread

Join us for the first half of today’s game. Today, the 4-7-1 Green Bay Packers host the 4-8 Atlanta Falcons in a rematch of the 2016 NFC Championship Game. Both teams are massively underachieving, as teams with Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan at quarterback should be performing far better than these two teams have this season. This game marks the first contest since the Packers fired head coach Mike McCarthy and promoted Joe Philbin to interim head coach. How will the Packers respond? Will the offense find a way to click better on third downs with Philbin calling the plays? Or will...

Packers Week 14 Inactives: Three starting offensive linemen are out

Packers Week 14 Inactives: Three starting offensive linemen are out

Good luck to Aaron Rodgers against a talented Falcons pass rush. The Green Bay Packers are likely to have a tough time protecting Aaron Rodgers today. Three starters in the offensive line were listed on the team's gameday inactive list in week 14 for the game against the Atlanta Falcons. Those three players are both starting guards - Lane Taylor and Byron Bell - and right tackle Bryan Bulaga. The team is expected to start Lucas Patrick, Justin McCray, and Jason Spriggs in their respective places. One bit of good news is that the team will have a full complement of defensive backs today....

NFL Week 14 Sunday Schedule: Rams and Bears get prime time slot

NFL Week 14 Sunday Schedule: Rams and Bears get prime time slot

Two division leaders in the NFC square off on Sunday Night Football tonight. Prior to the 2018 season, the Los Angeles Rams probably had their games against the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings circled on their calendar as some of the biggest contests of the season. And both were highly competitive, with the Rams winning 38-31 over the Vikings and 29-27 over the Packers. However, it’s this week instead that the Rams face the leaders of the NFC North, as they travel to Chicago to play the Bears on Sunday Night Football. The NFL certainly got this one right on the schedule, as the...
