Aaron Rodgers to play Sunday against the Jets

Todd Bowles

The Packers are facing two teams just like them - the Jets and the Lions - who have endured disappointing seasons and will not be playing beyond Week 17.

McGuire had 20 touches for the second consecutive week and performed quite well considering his hard matchup versus the Texans.

Green Bay is not terribly far away from getting back into contention.

The subsequent play-calling from Jets offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates came straight from the book of "Playing Not To Lose", in which a whole chapter is dedicated to Bowles. In the last two games, however, Williams has four such carries, including runs of 13, 15 and 19 yards against the Jets. A mind-boggling eight penalties that cost 109 yards occurred in the final 11:09 of regulation and overtime, per Andy Vasquez of the Record. I think they're good teammates.

Both opponents should be plenty motivated as well, so if the Packers want to get at least some sour taste out of their mouths, they'll need to fight to the end. The loss removed the Packers from playoff contention.

The Jets were flagged 16 times for 172 yards in the game, while Green Bay was called for 10 penalties for 86 yards.

"I'll have very special memories", he said.

The Packers will close the season at home against Detroit on Sunday. What would it look like to my teammates if they knew I kind of quit on them?' So I hope my teammates know that I'm never going to quit on them. The game might have been over then if not for a 51-yard return by Roberts on the ensuing kickoff. "That's what they're paid to do", Philbin said. "I think it was a little bit of a mortar to try and mess up our timing but what we did worked".

Rodgers (37-for-55, 442 yards, 2 TDs, 5-32 2 TDs rushing) gushed about the experience - first road win of the season, no better place to do it in comeback fashion.
