Green Bay Pack­ers

Green Bay can re­late to how At­lanta is feel­ing – it was in the NFC cham­pi­onship game three sea­sons ago that the Pack­ers lost a seem­ingly un­los­able one to Sea le, and haven’t come as close to the Su­per Bowl since. In this 99th sea­son of the league’s most ad­mired li le fran­chise, there’s a sense the clock is tick­ing; that the Pack­ers have to cap­i­talise on the prime of an all-timer such as Aaron Rodgers (right). Green Bay played through a hor­ror in­jury toll last sea­son, and did about as well as could be ex­pected a‡er los­ing six of its first ten. With a cleaner bill of health, a Su­per return is well in their sights – and with the game in neigh­bour­ing Min­nesota this sea­son, there will a sta­dium full of cheese­heads should the Pack make it.
