Packers QB Aaron Rodgers Could Return to Practice This Week

The math is not in the Packers favor when it comes to extending the teams streak of eight playoff appearances.

Oh, and the Steelers had Antonio Brown. The Packers did not.

Green Bay Packers wideout Jordy Nelson totaled just 11 yards on three catches in his team's 31-28 Week 12 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football. Brown followed that drive with a 33-yard touchdown on the next, which put the Steelers up 7.

At first, it looked as if Brown was out of bounds. Two officials conferred for more than 15 seconds before ruling Brown somehow managed to get both feet down.

Brown added a 14-yard reception on the next play.

Pittsburgh struck early but did not hold onto the lead long.

"It's one thing to do it in practice on a Thursday", guard David Decastro said.

Boswell obviously gets credit for the game-winning field goal, his second of the season.

I don't know how much more McChubby bs i can stand.

"For me, that's what I've tried to maintain, is a constant level of preparation - going into the game, what my thoughts are, how I'm going to play, visualizing it", Hundley said Wednesday.

Christmas parades daily Thursday through Monday
The parade will start at Broadway and Pinal Avenue in Old Town Orcutt, before traveling several blocks east on Clark Avenue. The Vikings of Solvang , a charitable organization, and its members will ride in a place of honor as grand marshals.

Red Sox in 'active trade talks' for White Sox 1B Abreu
He would also be cost-effective, as he is due just $10.825 million in 2017 and would be arbitration-eligible in 2018 and 2019. The Red Sox have long coveted Abreu and were in the running when the White Sox signed the Cuban star in 2013.

Dolphins QB out of concussion protocol, to start vs. Broncos
Head coach Adam Gase is calling Williams "day-to-day", but he's not expected to play against the Denver Broncos on Sunday. On the offensive line right guard Jermon Bushrod (foot) remains day to day, according to Gase.

One the Steelers needed to avoid perhaps another mystifying loss. Rodgers is first eligible to practice starting Saturday, assuming he's even healthy enough from right collarbone surgery to be cleared by the team doctor.

Hundley and the Packers are faced with a similar situation this season, now at 5-6 overall. Jamaal Williams would take a screen the distance on a 3rd and 8. The Packers lost that game and have now won just one of Hundley's five starts. "This one hurts, but we really have to focus on this last stretch". Green Bay did not return any of the three punts.

The teams traded punts before Pittsburgh took over at its 30 with 17 seconds to go. That's not what they do. "He has more to give, and we need it". After the interception by Martinez, Brett Hundley was sacked twice, and then Mason Crosby missed a 57 yard field goal.

Le'Veon Bell even had a solid night by air, accounting for tweve catches and 88 yards. The Steelers outgained Green Bay 462-307 and had the ball for almost 34 minutes. Brett Hundley threw for 242 yards and three long touchdowns in easily his best game since taking over after Rodgers went down last month against Minnesota. Hundley has thrown four interceptions, no touchdowns, and has a pathetic passer rating of 58.9.

"I think it's like anything in this league".

The usually taciturn (at least when cameras are rolling) Tomlin raised eyebrows during a pregame interview in which he stressed he believes his team can win the Super Bowl and allowed there's a part of him thinking about New England's visit to Heinz Field on December 17. "We're at five. We've got to get to six (this week), and that's what really it's all about". "I've got a great deal of confidence in them".

Brown has a big game nearly every week. "We couldn't deny it if we wanted to".

Coach Mike McCarthy's arithmetic tells him his Green Bay Packers are going to have to run the table again - and this time, do it for at least the next two games without their star quarterback. "They've supported me throughout this whole thing, and I'm trying to make sure we have an opportunity to win and I'm playing my best for them". "You look at the flow of the game. that's the right decision". Unlike Crosby, Boswell converted, nailing the 53-yard attempt as the game clock expired.

Defensive coordinator Dom Capers has been criticized for years in Green Bay. Pittsburgh beat the Bengals 29-14 on October 22.
