Okay, I realize not everyone will agree with me that all three of these teams are great! (Commence the arguing Packer and Viking fans) But the fact is The Minnesota Vikings, The Green Bay Packers and ... Posted on 1/3/13 at 2:43 PM
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was cleared by doctors and returned to practice for the Green Bay Packers on Thursday. Assuming he doesn’t have a setback in his recovery from a concussion, he is optimistic he will start Sunday’s game against Miami.
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers kept piling up the yards but couldn’t score. The Washington Redskins were left with a surmountable deficit, which they overcame to win yet another game that came down to the last play.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Until Clay Matthews went on a season-opening, offense-wrecking tear over the past two Sundays, no Green Bay Packers pass rusher had ever put together back-to-back three-sack games — not even Reggie White.
GREEN BAY, Wis. — Brandon Jackson doesn’t have an established track record of consistent production like the player he’s replacing. Still, the Green Bay Packers are confident he can carry the load in the wake of Ryan Grant’s season-ending ankle injury.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Brett Favre will run out of the Lambeau Field tunnel wearing purple, and nobody really knows how Green Bay Packers fans will react.
But if the angry buzz generated by the mere appearance of in-stadium video highlights of Favre and the Vikings during the first few Packers home games is any indication, the once-beloved face of the franchise will be booed. Loudly.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — For almost 20 years, Brett Favre was like a member of every Wisconsin family.
To be from Wisconsin is to be a Green Bay Packers fan, and the fun-loving quarterback rejuvenated the storied franchise, brought the Lombardi Trophy back to Titletown and turned “Cheesehead” from an insult into a boast. That he liked to hunt, fish and, in the early days at least, have a beer or two, well, his birth certificate may have said Mississippi but he was Wisconsin to the core.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — It’s the soothing mantra recited weekly by virtually every NFL defensive coordinator: Stop the run. Stop the run. Stop the run.
But as the Green Bay Packers showed in their loss at Minnesota earlier this month, stopping the run is only a starting point for a defense facing a good passing game led by a motivated, familiar opponent.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Before Brett Favre’s first preseason game with Minnesota, a meaningless performance featuring all of six snaps, he was nervous and nauseous. In the last hours before the Vikings played his former team at the Metrodome, Favre muttered to himself, “Man, I’m losing it.”
So how anxious must he be THIS week? It’s the highly hyped rematch in Green Bay at Lambeau Field, where betrayed fans will be waiting with what could be a cold welcome and the Packers are eagerly preparing to avenge their recent defeat.
“I don’t think it’ll be as bad,” Favre said, “but I don’t know that.”
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The NFL has moved the Minnesota Vikings-Green Bay Packers’ kickoff on Nov. 1 to 3:15 p.m. to accommodate the possibility of the Philadelphia Phillies playing in the World Series.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Brett Favre proved to the Green Bay Packers he has plenty of fire left inside, and in his right arm.
Favre’s first game against his former team was all fun for the Minnesota Vikings and all frustration for the Packers, as the graying quarterback connected for three touchdown passes and 271 yards in a 30-23 victory on Monday night.
