Packers receiver Jordy Nelson has thrown himself into consideration for the Pro Bowl in large part due to his penchant for making big plays this season. His average of 18.8 yards per catch is the highest among anyone in the top 50 in the NFL in receptions. He also has a team-high 10 touchdowns. But throughout the season, there's been reason to wonder how much Nelson has benefited from the fact that opposing defenses have often put their top cover corner on receiver Greg Jennings while at the same time double-teaming dangerous tight end Jermichael Finley. Perhaps now with Jennings expected to miss the final three regular-season games because of his sprained left knee, we'll find out. "I think some of that stuff is overrated, I really do," Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin said. "We'll have to maybe adust throughout the course of the ball game to see if they give us some unique coverages or double coverages."
