A roundup of the latest Green Bay Packers articles for Sunday, December 23.

Good morning and welcome to the gameday edition of the Packers News Report. Today, the Green Bay Packers are on the road for the final time this season against the New York Jets, aiming to get their first win away from Lambeau Field in over a year.

This may be a meaningless game for Green Bay when it comes to this season, but it’s an important final two weeks for many players on the roster. Earlier this week Paul Bretl wrote about five players to watch in the final two games of the season.

While Green Bay will be playing to win this game, losing could actually help the team get a higher draft pick. Earlier this week I wrote about the teams that can move ahead of Green Bay in the standings with wins today.

Whether you’re hoping for Green Bay to play well and win out, or lose both for better draft position, let’s just enjoy watching this team play for two more games before the long offseason begins.

Let’s begin the Packers News Report. Here’s a roundup of the latest articles from around the internet.
