Potential Impact Of Returning Stars

The Packers clinched the No. 1 seed in the NFC and compiled the best record in the league despite playing without three All-Pros and their starting center for most of the season. With their playoffs set to begin in two and a half weeks, there’s at least a chance that corner Jaire Alexander, left tackle […]
