Packers Try To Avoid Slipping At Home Again As Jags Arrive
AP -- The Green Bay Packers are getting healthier and guarding against complacency before opening the second half of their season Sunday as two-touchdown favorites over the slumping Jacksonville Jaguars. Green Bay has withstood a series of injuries to lead the NFC North at the midway point of the season.
The Packers want to avoid a repeat of their previous home game after falling 28-22 to Minnesota two weeks ago. The Jaguars have dropped seven straight games since opening the season with a 27-20 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.
