Green Bay can no longer relax sitting at 4-3, and you have to think Mike McCarthy is starting to feel his seat warm up. Aaron Rodgers is not to blame for the 33-32 loss to Atlanta after throwing four touchdowns and having no turnovers. The defense did not supply much support against the MVP candidate Matt Ryan, who found Mohamed Sanu in the back of the end zone with 31 seconds remaining. The first five drives of the game saw both teams combine to score 27 points, looking more like a Big 12 game.
<p>Next week: The Packers will face a Colts team that has split their past three games, alternating between a loss and a win. Next week would be a win for the Colts should the pattern continue. This will be the first time since Andrew Luck’s rookie season the two teams have met. Luck had the advantage over Rodgers last time, leading Indianapolis to a 30-27 win on a last-minute touchdown to Reggie Wayne. </p>
<p>Playoff hopes: Green Bay’s playoff hopes are still alive, but they need Minnesota to take another step back. Teams learned how to beat the Vikings last week when they lost to the Eagles, and that’s making Sam Bradford uncomfortable. With injuries to the offensive tackles, Green Bay needs to bring pressure and add to their 17 sacks.</p>. 4-3. Previous: . Green Bay Packers. 10. team. 49
