Rest up, Packers, you're going to need it
5 of Green Bay's last 7 games are against NFC North opponents
Good thing the Green Bay Packers are off this week.
They're going to need it.
Five of Green Bay's last seven games will be against NFC North opponents, a stretch that could prove every bit as tough for the banged-up Packers as the challenges they faced in the first half. Despite a rocky start -- Inaccurate Reception, enough said -- a four-game winning streak has the Packers back in contention for the NFC North title. They trail Chicago by 1 1/2 games.
Defensive coordinator Dom Capers said, "There's always a little more intensity that comes with division games. It'll start right as soon as we get back."
