GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - A potentially short-handed Green Bay Packers secondary faces a big challenge Sunday night.

At 35 years old, New Orleans’ Drew Brees still is regarded as one of the elite quarterbacks in the NFL.

The Packers defense, which is tied for the league lead in creating turnovers this season, will be looking to force Brees into a rare mistake when the teams play at the Superdome. Brees hasn’t thrown an interception in his last three games against Green Bay going back to 2008.

Cornerback Sam Shields is doubtful to play. He hasn’t practiced this week after missing Green Bay’s last game with a knee injury. Safety Morgan Burnett is questionable as he nurses a calf injury.
