Thumbs up

After ranking 32nd - dead last - last season in the NFL in total defense and passing yards allowed, just getting to the middle of the league this year would have been an accomplishment.

With two games remaining, the Green Bay Packers are right there. ...

After holding the Chicago Bears to just 190 total net yards on Sunday, the Packers moved into the top half of the NFL in total defense. They're tied with the Dallas Cowboys for 14th in the NFL, allowing 340.3 yards per game. Last season, the Packers gave up 411.6 yards per game.
