Thumbs up

The team that couldn't get to the quarterback last year is now tied for the NFL lead in sacks.

Though the Packers still don't seem like a defense that's constantly pressuring quarterbacks, they are making the most of their sack opportunities, which is why they are tied with this week's opponent, the Arizona Cardinals, with 26 sacks. ...

Three more sacks and the Packers will match their total from all of last season. If they can maintain this pace, they would match the single-season franchise record of 52 sacks, which was set in 2001.

What's your take on the Packers Family Night change?
