Packers Hoping To Get Back On Track

The Green Bay Packers (1-2) will host one of the NFL‘s two winless teams Sunday afternoon when they welcome the New Orleans Saints (0-3) to Lambeau Field.  Both teams find themselves in similar situations.  The Packers and Saints are in last place in their respective divisions after winning the NFC North and NFC South a year ago.  Each has had its issue with the league.  The Packers felt robbed of a win by the replacement officials Monday night in Seattle while the Saints are still trying to overcome suspensions stemming from offseaon bounty accusations.  According to linebacker A.J. Hawk, a win would help either team get over its issues…

The Packers have struggled offensively through the first three weeks.  The Packers are ranked 25th in the league in total offense (28th in rushing and 20th in passing), they are tied for 26th in points scored at 19 per game and Green Bay has just four offensive touchdowns in three games.  Receiver Jordy Nelson doesn’t think its one particular thing that is slowing down the Packers…

While the offense has sputtered the defense has been much improved from last season.  The Packers are ranked third in total defense and they are first against the pass.  Corner Tramon Williams was asked why the defense has had the solid start…

Despite the Saints record and the suspension of head coach Sean Peyton, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy sill has plenty of respect for New Orleans…

Kickoff of Sunday’s game between the Packers and Saints is at 3:25 PM.

Notes:
Sunday is the 23rd meeting between the Packers and Saints.  Green Bay is 15-7 in the all-time series including a record of 9-2 at home (6-1 at Milwaukee County Stadium and 3-1 at Lambeau Field).

The Packers have won 20 of their last 22 regular-season games at Lambeau Field.
