Every NFL team’s key role player

Every NFL team has a series of superstars on both offense and defense who steal the limelight, but in order for a team to be successful, they need quality starters at every position and strong reserves/role players. Often, it’s those role players who are ultimately the difference between a championship run or a story about what could have been. Here’s a look at every NFL team’s key role player. Arizona Cardinals – John Brown, wide receiver This spot could have just as easily have...

Thursday Night Football, Week 3: How to watch Rams-49ers

It’s an NFC West showdown on TNF this week.

This week’s NFL schedule gets underway with an NFC West battle on Thursday Night Football, as the division’s two California-based teams square off in the northern part of the state.

So far, the Rams have been a bit of a surprise, jumping out to a 1-1 record and seeing quarterback Jared Goff record a passer rating over 100. Meanwhile, Bryan Hoyer lines up under center for San Francisco, and he has yet to throw a touchdown pass this season....

Packers place tackle Jason Spriggs on Injured Reserve

The Packers’ fourth tackle is going to be out for at least the next eight weeks.

On Wednesday afternoon, news leaked out about the Green Bay Packers signing Ricky Jean Francois, whom they had cut a week earlier, to help bolster the depth on the defensive line with Mike Daniels injury. However, no matching roster move was reported in order to make a roster spot for Jean Francois.

Thursday afternoon came, however, and the team announced Jean Francois’ signing along with the corresponding...

Hottest Take of the Week: Packers vs Falcons 2017

A look at the scorching takes resulting from the Packers’ loss to the Atlanta Falcons

The regular season debut of Hottest Take of the Week is here. Technical difficulties curtailed last week’s video, but week 1 takes are briefly addressed. Spoiler: T.J. Watt and Kevin King are heavily involved.

The first take involves an accusation of Mike Daniels receiving too much praise following his monster game against the Seahawks. Most Packer fans will say that’s impossible, but certain...

Packers vs. Bengals, Week 3 2017: Game Time, TV Broadcast, Odds, & More

Our Game Primer gives you all the information you need to tune in for this week’s Packers game.

What a difference four years makes.

The last time the Green Bay Packers and Cincinnati Bengals played each other was in 2013. The Packers had drafted multiple running backs in that spring’s draft, landing Eddie Lacy in round two and Johnathan Franklin in round four. The game was Franklin’s coming out party, as he had over 100 yards rushing in the contest.

This year, neither of those running...

APC NFL Week 3 Picks: Packers bounce back against Bengals

The APC staff remains optimistic that the Packers will be able to earn a victory this week despite their injuries.

This week, APC tries to maintain its success and is counting on a Packers victory....

APC Mailbag, Week 3: Injuries, Packers’ defensive backs, and replacing Greg Olsen

A new week means a new mailbag! This week, I answer questions about soft-tissue injuries, tight ends and, also, what if the Packers hadn’t drafted Randall and Rollins?

Mail time!

This week’s mailbag questions had a pretty consistent theme: injuries. We got a lot of questions about the Packers’ injury-riddled Sunday night matchup with the Falcons and many about injuries league-wide. The Packers were 15th in adjusted games lost last season and 9th the year before, per Football...

Packers OLB Nick Perry scheduled for hand surgery, return timeline unclear

The Packers' top sack artist from 2016 will miss an unspecified amount of time.

Less than a week after enduring copious injuries during a Week 2 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, the Green Bay Packers now face another major health concern. Starting outside linebacker Nick Perry has a hand injury that will require surgery to repair.

Green Bay offered no insight into the nature of the hand injury or when Perry incurred the problem. Just as importantly, the team did not say how many games he could...

Packers Film Room, Week 2: I want the full Monty!

In the film review of week 2, we take a closer look at how Ty Montgomery was utilized against the Falcons.

If there was ever a doubt in your mind that Ty Montgomery wouldn’t be the Packers’ bell-cow running back, that idea can be put to rest. While Montgomery has been on the field more than any other running back in the NFL this year, the diversity in his assignments hasn’t necessarily matched his diversity in skills. Let’s take a look at some positives and negatives in how he was...

Packers LB Nick Perry to have hand surgery

The Green Bay Packers will be without linebacker Nick Perry for some time. Head coach Mike McCarthy announced on Thursday that Perry will have to undergo surgery on an injured hand. “Mike McCarthy announced prior to Thursday’s practice that Packers linebacker Nick Perry is scheduled for surgery on his injured hand,” a report from the team’s website noted. “McCarthy provided no other specifics on the injury, nor a timeline for Perry’s potential return.” Perry, 27, put up a...

Cheese Curds, 9/21: Packers’ injuries won’t limit their offensive strategy

Don’t expect Mike McCarthy or Aaron Rodgers to scale back the playbook due to injury.

Columbus Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella has a saying: “safe is death.”

That slogan generally applies to aggressiveness on the ice, where the fiery Tortorella would rather see his players take an aggressive, calculated risk and fail than sit back passively and let the game come to them.

In hearing Aaron Rodgers’ comments this week, you’d think it is the Green Bay Packers quarterback who...
