Cold hands and a hard football make for tough catches on chilly winter afternoons at Lambeau Field.
The uproar over Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather obscures a more fundamental question. Can football be made safe? Is this simply a behavior problem — something that can be addressed through the right combination of rules, discipline and improved technique — or is the real issue the game?
The numbers are not pretty anywhere on the defensive side of the field for the Washington Redskins. That has been a consistent theme through the first two weeks of the season.
The Redskins own the NFL's second-oldest 53-man roster, but made mistakes you'd expect from a group not stocked with veterans. Two forgettable games into the season, they aren't a disciplined football team.
The Washington strong safety started his first regular season game in nearly 10 months Sunday and had to leave in the second quarter against the Green Bay Packers with a concussion.
The Redskins went to Lambeau Field holding fast to the image of the team they were at the end of last season, when they rallied to win the NFC East and reach the playoffs. That notion was shredded by the Green Bay Packers in a humbling 38-20 loss on Sunday afternoon.
If any more Green Bay receivers go down, the Packers could always use Morgan Burnett.
Cedric Benson has something to prove to his new team, though he wouldn't mind reminding his old one what they are missing.
The Green Bay Packers walked off the field for the final time this season to a chorus of chants of "Let's Go, Giants!"
Aaron Rodgers is inactive for the Green Bay Packers' regular season finale against the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has a broken thumb, Titans QB Matt Hasselbeck is dealing with an injured right arm, and Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has a high left ankle sprain.
Aaron Rodgers had some competition from fearless rookie Christian Ponder. The defending champion Packers still kept their cool.
The Green Bay Packers say running back Ryan Grant and right tackle Bryan Bulaga won't play Sunday against the Denver Broncos.
Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes, seldom-used rookie James Starks ran for 123 yards and the Green Bay Packers beat Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles 21-16 in an NFC wild-card game Sunday.
James Starks had 18 carries for 73 yards against the San Francisco 49ers and his coaches didn't cite him for any major mistakes in pass protection. He even remembered to thank his offensive linemen.
"I'm going to run hard and try to make the most out of it," Starks said. "It just so happened [Meriweather] got the worst out of it. I hope he's OK, but it's football."
Starks said he'll take whatever the coaches are willing to give him.
