    The Green Bay Packers are actually the Super Bowl favorites, and they are likely to have an opportunity to really take a big step once again towards their ultimate goals if they undertake a Kansas City Chiefs outfit which has to be disappointed after losing a casino game which Shpuld have been won the other day against Denver at home. Aaron Rodgers hasn 't been fantastic this season. Most of us expected to view a tiny fall off this year with Jordy Nelson missing the season with a torn ACL, but

    The Green Bay Packers are (in my opinion) a fantastic NFL football team!! Possibly the best!! Lately thought the Packers have, well, sucked. (To be honest!) There record is 7-4 and well to me that 's somewhat awful for a team that can do SO much more! I know they have lost Jordy Nelson (Wide Reciever #87) for the whole season with a torn ACL (during preseason) and that 's really tough! Now, mind you the Packers are still managing without him, but it 's not the same! Aaron Rodgers (Quarterback #12)

    yards per carry. This defense combined with the run first offense is bad news for all of their opponents. At 7-2, the Vikings have won five in a row, and sit alone atop the NFC North. Next week they have a huge game against the second place Green Bay Packers. 6. Pittsburgh Steelers: 6-4 (9) One thing I am certain about is the Steelers will win one of the wild cards in the AFC.
