Green Bay Packers
Packers coach Mike McCarthy says the chances of quarterback Aaron Rodgers playing Thursday at Detroit are “slim to none.”
Linebacker Clay Matthews didn’t feel like celebrating after the Packers could only muster a tie with the Minnesota Vikings despite rallying from a late 16-point deficit.
The Packers don’t experience slumps like this too often. At least they know what’s causing the losing.
The Detroit Lions announced today that 1,000 paperless Standing Room Only tickets for their Thanksgiving Day game against the Green Bay Packers November 28 will go on sale Tuesday, November 12 at 10 AM ET.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Tuesday he has a fractured left collarbone and has no idea yet how long he will be out.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler watched the Monday Night football game from the sidelines. That was expected.
For the better part of two decades now, the Green Bay Packers backup quarterback has been little more than an afterthought.
Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said there were many times last season Calvin Johnson played on Sundays even when he did not practice during the week. Last week, though, was not one of those times, and this week may not be either.
The Detroit Lions might again head into Sunday without wide receiver Calvin Johnson, and after struggling without Johnson last week at Green Bay, the Lions face what Reggie Bush says is an even better defense.
