Vikes, Packers Win Sunday

Monday, December 16th, 2013

The Minnesota Vikings just had their biggest point total since the record-shattering 1998 season. The Vikes pulled a real upset in beating the Eagles 48-30 Sunday, and most impressively, Minnesota did it all without their top two running backs, top two tight ends, and top two defensive backs. Matt Cassel passed for 382 yards and […]

Rodgers Officially Ruled Out For Packers

Friday, December 13th, 2013

The Packers have ruled out Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) for Week 15. Matt Flynn will get the start. It’s conceivable Rodgers could return for Week 16, but that decision will be impacted by whether Green Bay can go to Dallas and beat the Cowboys with Flynn under center.

In Pro football, another day and really no clarity for Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He did practice on Thursday in pads for the first time since breaking his collarbone, but he’s still limited and hasn’t been cleared to play on Sunday against the Falcons. Matt Flynn has been taking all of the first team reps […]

Packers: Final Decision On Rodgers Coming Friday Or Saturday

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) participated in individual drills at Wednesday’s practice and earned a “limited” designation. Just like last week, Rodgers took all of his snaps from the backup centers. Matt Flynn took the first-team reps and is being prepared to start against the Falcons. Beat writers noticed Rodgers had plenty of zip on his passes, […]
