Positional Analysis: Nose Tackle

This is the 10th of a 14-part series examining each position going into the offseason. Starter (C-): Journeyman Ricky Jean Francois was signed last month, but the coaches would like Kenny Clark to be the starter in the middle of the D-line. Last year’s No. 1 pick had an ordinary rookie season until turning it up a notch

Positional Analysis: Defensive End

This is the ninth of a 14-part series examining each position going into the offseason.

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. CLE

The Packers opened the 2016 preseason with a 17-11 win over the Cleveland Browns at Lambeau Field. I watched the tape so you don’t have to.
