We have a pretty good team but I'm rather surprised at how many talking heads and pundits think we are going to win this one.  I agree with most here: this isn't going to be easy by any stretch of the imagination.

The common reasoning by those pundits who are picking the Packers is: Rodgers.

He's playing pretty incredible football, especially at home.  He hasn't thrown an INT at home since 2012, and he hasn't lost a regular season home game in a long time (the last one was when he broke his collarbone against the Bears; before that, it was the 2012 season opener).

I'm glad this game is at Lambeau, and I agree: this will be a tough game with major implications.

One of these teams is going to leave Lambeau as a serious contender for the NFC Championship. The team will have some green on this much we know. I just happen to believe the other color will be gold and it's not going to be as close as some think.

I don't care what anybody thinks about what an offensive genius Chip Kelly is as a play caller. I get a kick out of that term. They still have Mark Sanchez at QB and if you watched that game last week he wasn't as good as Carolina was just plain bad. You can't make chicken soup out of chicken s#it. Butt fumble is going to be exposed, big time at Lambeau.

The only chance the Eagles have is to completely dominate our offensive line and make life complete misery for Rodgers. That is their only chance.

I was never worried about this one!

Arizona defense is dominating the Lions offense. They have the ball back now.

Arizona just iced it with a 3rd and 11 conversion!

I love how we have been able to get the young offensive lineman some work in the past two games.

Not thrilled with how we're finishing this game. I know it's over but blocked punts are not supposed to happen.

Sloppy specials today...and I'm one who rarely complains, especially with a big win over a decent team.

It is going to be interesting how NE blocks the Lions inside. They let Mankins walk and they are susceptible to inside pressure. I think Suh has to dominate that game to have a chance.

The Packers are now #1 in points differential.  New England is #2 and needs to beat Indy by 22 points to tie us in that stat.
