The Green Bay Packers listed both their starting quarterback (Aaron Rodgers) and running back (Eddie Lacy) on the injury report as limited participants in Thursday’s practice. The team estimated that the two players would have been limited on Friday as well and gave both a probable chance to play on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in the NFC championship game. The Packers list four players on their injury report and the Seahawks list seven (two not injury related) on theirs.
The Green Bay Packers do not have to play this Sunday. That is a good thing as quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be able to get some extra rest before the Packers begin their run toward the Super Bowl. They will host one of three teams in the Divisional Round. Their opponent will be determined by the outcome of the Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys game.
The 4-11 Oakland Raiders can’t keep the 12-3 Denver Broncos from winning the AFC West, but they might be able to stop their division rivals from claiming the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC playoffs if the Silver and Black can end a five-game losing streak.
Trailing 26-3 at the half, the Green Bay Packers fought back and shocked the Dallas Cowboys by winning 37-36 Sunday in Texas.
The studs and duds for the Oakland Raiders so far this season. Read who has been good and who has been bad!
Matt Flynn, who was hired to be the leader and starting quarterback for the Oakland Raiders, has been released.
Oakland acquired Flynn in April from Seattle for a 2014 fifth-round draft pick and a conditional pick in 2015. The Raiders also reworked Flynn’s contract to give him $6.5 million in guaranteed money this season.
Playing with backup quarterback Matt Flynn Sunday afternoon, the Raiders lost at home to the Washington Redskins 24-14. The status of first string QB Terrelle Pryor was uncertain all week as he recovered from a concussion.
The Oakland Raiders fall to a previously winless Washington Redskins.
Terrelle Pryor is inactive for the Oakland Raiders on Sunday because he has not fully recovered from a concussion and Matt Flynn will start in his place.
