A roundup of the latest Green Bay Packers articles for Saturday, Oct. 5.
Welcome to the Packers News Report. With the Green Bay Packers set for an important clash with the Dallas Cowboys tomorrow, let’s take a quick look around the NFC. As expected before the season, there’s no clear number one team in the conference, but there’s a lot of competition.
Right now, only three teams look to be definitely out of the playoff hunt: Washington, Arizona and Atlanta. Carolina might follow soon.
Minnesota has looked great at home, and awful at times on the road. The NY Giants looked out of it after two games, but Daniel Jones has them back in the NFC East race. Philadelphia and Tampa Bay are both still in the mix despite an inconsistent start.
Then come the teams with winning records, and there are eight in total. The LA Rams are still among the best teams in the conference despite losing two straight. San Francisco leads the way at 3-0, with Seattle just behind at 4-1. New Orleans is looking strong at 3-1 despite losing Drew Brees to injury. And the NFC North looks to have three potential contenders with Green Bay, Chicago and Detroit. Minnesota, too, could still be in the mix.
That makes Sunday’s game at Dallas all the more important. We’ll learn a lot about both teams tomorrow, both coming off of losses last week.
Let’s get into Saturday’s Packers News Report.
