This would allow the team to host the second Wild Card team, which could be either the Detroit Lions or Washington Redskins. They come out and they work every single day.
On Monday night, the Packers got a little bit closer to making their eighth straight berth to the postseason. Coach Mike McCarthy clearly is looking to reduce Montgomery's workload elsewhere because he has taken on a full-time role at halfback.
"We thought it was a pretty good play", Thielen said. "That's all we've got right now".
The Green Bay Packers are holding their own destiny in terms of the National Football League playoffs. Now the Eagles hold the 15th pick. Then a 21-13 win over the Houston Texans.
QB Aaron Rodgers is expected to be good to go when the Packers host the Minnesota Vikings in a Christmas Eve matinee Saturday. "How are you going to come up with your own scheme?" Xavier's a great kid", Zimmer said, later adding, "We changed a couple calls later in the week.
The first-place Dallas Cowboys will be relying on rookies at quarterback and running back in January and lack a consistent bite on defense, the NFC West-winning Seattle Seahawks are down superstar safety Earl Thomas and lost badly to Green Bay just two weeks ago, and the flawed Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are still fighting it out in the NFC South.
But let's let Rhodes speak for himself, via Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune after Saturday's game. The Packers have averaged 29.67 points per game during that stretch. Terence Newman covered wide receiver?

Back in 2010, Green Bay was on the opposite path to end the year. The Packers, now 9-6, could still make the playoffs as a wildcard team if they lose next week.The Packers cashed in on two Vikings turnovers in the second quarter with 14 points. That team may be more talented than this one but this playoff field may be weaker. "We went to the game, played, got it corrected".
Newman's on-the-fly game plan only lasted two series, after reviewing the film - Rhodes began flipping sides to cover Nelson on the third Green Bay possession, with Newman on the sideline - but Nelson had already done plenty of damage en route to a seven-catch, 145-yard, two-touchdown first half.
The Packers beat the rival Minnesota Vikings 38-25 on Saturday behind Rodgers' 347 yards and four touchdowns against an elite defense. The Green Bay team you may actually want to fear is the one you don't expect to fear.
