Packers: Mike McCarthy says team 'better prepared' for Florida heat

And just like that, the Packers' NFC North mini-dynasty was no more. Not necessarily. Bookmakers often set lines different for "public teams", as in teams that the public likes to bet on regardless of how good or bad they are. While they are considered Super Bowl contenders, they are nagged by a couple of questions. Even without Nelson, Green Bay's biggest deep threat who missed all of last season with a knee injury, the Packers ranked second in the league with 39 passing plays of 25 yards or more. We'll see how it goes, those are available all over the building as well. They indicate the type of player he was before tearing his ACL on August 23, 2015.

Double Stack Play of the Week: Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, and Randall Cobb. Green Bay had won the first two games played in Jacksonville, going back to the Jaguars' debut as an expansion team in 1995. He was a fourth-round draft pick by the Packers in 2008 and became one of the best offensive guards in the NFL.

" Did the Vikings get robbed in the Sam Bradford trade?" Can they start the season 1-0 for the first time since 2011? His offensive line is healthy, he has a healthy running back taking pressure off of him, and his wide receiving corps is back together. The Lions aren't getting much buzz heading into 2016, and perhaps that's fair after Calvin Johnson abruptly retired early in the offseason.

Detroit Lions a sleeper in the playoff conversation?

Though Bennett aspires to be a play-caller and a head coach, he doesn't get caught up in not being the final authority on plays being sent to quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

One of the more interesting moments on Saturday was how quickly a rumor spread inside and outside of the press box of the next game at Lambeau Field - Notre Dame vs. Wisconsin. However, they are improving.

"When we can get (Lacy and Starks) rolling, that's when we're at our best", center JC Tretter said. Do not get too high on them though with expectations, they are still a ways away from making the playoffs.

That AFC personnel man was the only one of four scouts Thursday who forecast a repeat divisional championship for Minnesota.

While the Lions and Bears look decent on offense, they are just not very likely to keep up with the inconsistencies throughout their rosters.

When quarterback Teddy Bridgewater blew out his knee August 30 in practice, the Minnesota Vikings' chances to repeat as NFC North Division champions dimmed.

Arizona Cardinals over 9.5 (-200) - My top-ranked team in the preseason Power Rankings, the Cardinals were a 13-win team last season and could be in that neighbourhood again.

After the season, Rodgers had minor knee surgery.
