Green Bay Packers 2014 News and Updates
9/24/14 - This week the Green Bay Packers will play their most important game of the season as they try to avoid the dreaded 1-3 hole they will be put in if they drop this game against the Chicago Bears. Aaron Rodgers is one of the truly elite quarterbacks in the NFL and will look to avenge his poor performance against the Lions last week which is one reason that Green Bay Packers tickets have shot to an average price of over $660 this week according to Razorgator.
9/22/14 - The usually formidable Green Bay Packers offense seemingly took a step backwards in their last contest as Aaron Rodgers looked out of touch with receivers, only able to put up 7 points in defeat to NFC North rival Detroit Lions. The Packers will remain in the NFC North this week as they head to historic Soldier Field in Chicago for a game with the rival Bears which has seen Packers tickets skyrocket all the way up to an average price of $650 according to Razorgator.
9/16/14 - One thing stands out when looking at the Green Bay Packers’ stats after two games, and that is how dependent the Packers’ offense has become on receiver Jordy Nelson. Nelson’s 18 catches have him tied for the lead in the league in that statistic, and his 292 receiving yards are tops in the league. 209 of Nelson’s 292 yards came in Week 2, a 31-24 win over the New York Jets at Lambeau Field. Nelson also rang up his lone touchdown this season in the win over the Jets; it was one of three scoring tosses made by Aaron Rodgers in the game. Rodgers was 25-of-42 overall for 346 yards; his other two touchdown passes were to Randall Cobb, who pulled in five balls for 39 yards. Eddie Lacy rushed 13 times for 43 yards, while pulling down a pair of passes for 18 more yards.
9/9/14 - Last Thursday saw the Green Bay Packers travel to Seattle to take on the defending Super Bowl champs in the opening game of the 2014 season. Unfortunately for Packers stockholders, the Pack fell a few points short of success, falling 36-16. Aaron Rogers was 23 of 33 for 189 yards, with a fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Randall Cobb, and an interception; the Seattle defense also got to Rodgers for three sacks. Rodgers spent most of the game avoiding Seahawks shutdown corner Richard Sherman, choosing to attack the other side of the field, where Jordy Nelson had nine catches for 83 yards. The Pack have their Lambeau opener next up, hosting the New York Jets this weekend.
9/4/14 - It was the final tuneup and a game contested mostly by reserves, but the Green Bay Packers proved victorious in a 34-14 pounding of Kansas City. Backup quarterbacks Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien both threw for a pair of scores, making Pack head coach Mike McCarthy’s job tough in deciding whether to go with two quarterbacks or three on the final 53-man roster. (Ultimately the team chose to carry both men as backups to Aaron Rodgers.) A pair of rookies who scored early TDs for the Packers, Davante Adams and Jeff Janis, also made the final cut over the weekend; as did safety Ha Ha Clinton-dix, a first round draft pick this past spring.
9/3/14 - In perhaps the most highly-anticipated Week 1 matchup, the Packers visit the Super Bowl champion Seahawks in Seattle on Sunday. The battle between an electric offense and a stifling defense should create an exciting matchup. At one time Packers tickets for this game were averaging over $600 but according to RazorGator have fallen quite significantly to presently average $386.
8/26/14 - In their 31-21 victory over Oakland last weekend, the Green Bay Packers showed they were ready for the games to count – especially with a running game to go with Aaron Rodgers’ crisp passing. Rodgers completed nine of 20 for 139 yards and a pair of scores, to Jordy Nelson and Andrew Quarless; and running back Eddie Lacy added a third score while rushing six times for 36 yards. DuJuan Harris had 12 carries for 56 yards for the Pack offense as well; defensively, Julius Peppers collected his first sack in a Packer uniform after being signed in the offseason from division rival Chicago.
8/20/14 - Aaron Rodgers was in midseason form in his 2014 preseason debut, completing 11 of his 13 passes for 128 yards and a touchdown as the Green Bay Packers defeated hosts St. Louis 21-7 this past weekend. The Pack opened the game with an extended 12-play drive that covered 86 yards; 25 of those yards were by the legs of running back Eddie Lacy, who had five carries in the drive, which was finished by Rodgers’ three-yard scoring pass to Randall Cobb. The remainder of the Packers’ scoring came via a pair of Mason Crosby field goals, and a 34-yard touchdown pass from third-stringer Matt Flynn to Jeff Janis in the third quarter, which also featured Flynn completing a two-point conversion to Davante Adams.
7/30/14 - One of the great traditions of the NFL’s preseason training camps happens in Green Bay, where young Packer fans line up with their bicycles. Their hope is that one of the Packers players will borrow it to ride to Lambeau Field for the day’s workouts. No one knows exactly when this all started – some say it started in the late Fifties, when the Pack trained at Stevens Point, Wis., according to USA Today’s “For the Win” – but most folks date the tradition to the years when legendary coach Vince Lombardi led the team. The tradition makes for a great photo opportunity every year, of larger-than-life football players riding some of the smallest bikes, with the bike’s owner either tagging alongside (in some cases, holding the player’s helmet), and others piggybacking on the back of the bike.
7/22/14 - Since winning Super Bowl XLV, the Green Bay Packers have failed to make the NFC’s conference championship game every season since. But because of the presence of Aaron Rodgers, who is consistently ranked as one of the elite passers in the NFL, Mike Florio of the Pro Football Talk website considers the Pack to be one of the top five teams in the league, despite the disappointments and personnel losses on both sides of the ball. Florio notes that the team will have to address some unspecified deficiencies, but says that if Rodgers doesn’t get injured, this could be the Packers’ year. Off the field, Pack president Mark Murphy has said the team won’t retire legendary Pack QB Brett Favre’s number this season, due to concerns that the fans would boo the former signal-caller.
7/16/14 - Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy wants to speed up his offense in 2014. Maybe not Chip Kelly’s Oregon fast, but certainly close enough – in a story on ESPN.com, Rob Demovsky wrote that while Kelly’s high-octane Philadelphia offense ran nearly 66 plays a game, McCarthy wants his Packers to average 75 plays a game. To that end, McCarthy said at the NFL scouting combine that he wanted his running backs, like Eddie Lacy, to be three-down backs, which would eliminate time costing substitutions and help speed up the game. Last season the Packers averaged just over 67 plays per fame, the second-fastest rate in McCarthy’s tenure as Packers coach, but this year, he sees no reason to want to slow down the game.
7/8/14 - This item comes not out of Green Bay, but out of Washington, D.C. With much of the sports world – at least, that part which isn’t debating Germany vs. Brazil and Argentina vs. the Netherlands – focused on the question, “Where will LeBron James land,” Washington Post writer Mark Maske decided to explore which NFL quarterback would be the league’s version of King James. His answer? Green Bay Packers signal-caller Aaron Rodgers. Maske admits there are close to a dozen players in the conversation, ultimately based his call on the fact that Rodgers is a highly accurate passer, a player who can use his maneuverability, and that his intangibles can overcome any deficiencies the Pack might have from season to season.
6/19/14 - The Green Bay Packers are still in waiting mode over the status of tight end Jermichael Finley, who had cervical fusion surgery. Finley has received his health clearance from the surgeon who performed the procedure, but the popular pass-catcher is scouting around for a new deal. However, if Finley leaves, the Packers have seven other options to fill his spot, including Andrew Quarless, who filled in admirably last season after Finley’s injury; versatile but under-utilized Jake Stoneburner, who saw just 10 snaps as an undrafted rookie; and this year’s draftees, Richard Rodgers (who it is said had a number of outstanding grabs during organized team activities) and Colt Lyerla.
6/11/14 - First was Greg Jennings. Then came James Jones. Now it’s Jordy Nelson’s turn. The senior receiver now on the Green Bay Packers is entering the final year of his four year contract, and while there’s been no contact yet between player and team, that doesn’t mean Nelson wants to leave. Nelson told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, “Obviously you want to get it done as soon as possible,” but he expects negotiations on the new pact to come soon. Nelson also told ESPN,com, “I wouldn’t be surprised if stuff starts picking up soon now that the draft and everything’s done with.”
6/3/14 - Aaron Rodgers is adding some new moves to his repertoire…his workout repertoire. In preparing for the Green Bay Packers’ upcoming season, Rodgers has been doing yoga in an effort to lose weight, make himself more flexible, and (it is hoped) avoid injuries – although the injuries Rodgers has suffered in his career, a broken collarbone in 2013 and a concussion in 2010, aren’t the kinds of injuries that increased flexibility would help. Still, the 30-year-old signal caller is looking for any edge he can find to extend his career, and he’s reportedly lost 11 pounds this offseason, telling ESPN he is the lightest he’s ever been in his NFL career.
5/28/14 - The news out of northern Wisconsin has been all about free agent signings for the Green Bay Packers, including a couple of players with question marks after their names – albeit for two different reasons. The Pack brought in free agent tight end Colt Lyerla, an Oregon product, as part of their rookie minicamp, and despite the red flags in his past for an illicit drug arrest as well as other run-ins with police during his time with the Ducks, signed Lyerla after an outstanding show at the minicamp. Also signing a contract was undrafted Alabama outside linebacker Adrian Hubbard, after being cleared by team physicians of a minor heart abnormality.
5/20/14 - The Green Bay Packers had an interesting time at the 2014 NFL Draft. For one, ESPN points out that general manager Ted Thompson made no trades during this draft – the first time in 10 drafts he’s done this; secondly, even though he’s said he doesn’t “draft for need,” Thompson ended up doing just that: a safety (first rounder Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, who also wins the contest for best name of the draft), a receiver (two, in fact – Davante Adams and Jared Abbrederis), a tight end (Richard Rodgers), and a center (Corey Linsley) – something to remember going into next year’s draft as well.
5/12/14 - The Green Bay packers had four picks in the first three rounds, and made big moves in all three of them. GM Ted Thompson plucked Alabama's Ha Ha Clinton-Dix at No. 21, selected WR Davante Adams in the second round and surprised many by choosing Jared Abbrederis early in the third. Arguably the best safety in the draft, Clinton-Dix will be a potential candidate to replace James Jones and Jermichael Finley, while Adams should develop as a third option behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. The Green Bay Packers made sure to bolster both sides of the ball in the offseason—see if their 2014 Draft picks come to fruition with Green Bay Packers tickets!
4/16/14 - The Green Bay Packers will have their first two exhibition games on the road, and their final two back in Cheesehead Nation. Green Bay opens up preseason play at Tennessee to take on the Titans in Week 1 (Aug 7-10) and will extend their road trip with a visit to the St. Louis Rams in Week 2 (Aug 14-18). The Packers return to Lambeau Field in Week 3 to host the Oakland Raiders during primetime on Aug 22, and will face the Kansas City Chiefs for their final exhibition game, Aug 28. GB will welcome back re-signed Matt Flynn, who will compete with Scott Tolzein to back Rodgers at the QB position, Clay Matthews returned from injury, as well as newly acquired Julius Peppers. Everyone wants to see this difference-maker from Chicago when he takes the field as a Packer for the first time. The green and gold will not be playing any of their preseason opponents during the regular season, so get your Green Bay Packers tickets now and see these rare showdowns in person!
2/11/14 – Two of the biggest games on the 2014 Green Bay Packers schedule are against NFC East champion Philadelphia Eagles at home and versus the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks on the road. In addition to the Packers six games against their NFC North division foes, they’ll play the AFC East and NFC South in 2014 with home games against the New York Jets, New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons, and Carolina Panthers. Green Bay has the 11th-toughest home schedule in the league with the eight teams combining for a .520 winning percentage in 2013.
12/30/13 - Aaron Rodgers made his return to the gridiron in stunning fashion yesterday, with a 33-28 victory on his first day back from a broken collarbone in the blistering cold at Soldier Field. Though things looked thorny for the Packers in the first half, the Green & Gold ate up the Chicago Bears’ leaky defense as Rodgers connected with another returning hero, Randall Cobb, with 38 seconds left for a game-winning TD to secure the division title. The NFC North kings will host the San Francisco 49ers in the Wild Card Round this Sunday afternoon, January 5, at Lambeau Field. The Packers are looking for revenge this Wild Card weekend, after losing to SF last season in the Divisional round for the NFC title—but now with their star QB back in place, Green Bay could take it all the way! Green Bay Packers playoff tickets aren’t much more than a regular season game, at just $169 to get-in, and $369 on average for this epic NFC rematch!
12/23/13 - The Green Bay Packers have their playoff hopes hanging by a thread, after losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday, 38-31, at Lambeau Field. Despite a fourth quarter surge, a forced fumble disrupted play and the Packers could not score on their final drive. Cheesehead Nation must now gear up for the upcoming NFC North showdown this Sunday against the Chicago Bears, who they lost to earlier this season. Green Bay Packers tickets are the second most expensive of the week, at $432 on average, and $146 minimum to get-in and see which rival team will play past Week 17 in the winner-take-all battle!
12/16/13 - The Green Bay Packer’s postseason chances are alive and kicking, after a miraculous rally led them past the Dallas Cowboys for a 37-36 victory. Matt Flynn led five touchdown drives in the second half, while the defense took advantage of Dallas' major fourth quarter meltdown: Clay Matthews maximized pressure on Tony Romo, who threw two critical interceptions with three minutes left. Next week the Packers will head back home, and may debut their starting QB pitted against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Green Bay Packers tickets are just $19 to get-in for what is expected to be Aaron Rodger’s return to the field!
12/9/13- The Green Bay Packers squeaked by the Atlanta Falcons yesterday at Lambeau Field, with a 22-21 comeback victory and their first win since losing QB Aaron Rodgers. Under light snowfall and biting cold, Green Bay rallied past an 11-point deficit at the half, charging back with 12 unanswered points, thanks in part to Jordy Nelson, who hit 1,000 yards for the second time in his career. Considering Detroit’s loss in Philadelphia, the Packers now trail the Lions for first place in the NFC North by just half a game—remember that awkward Thanksgiving tie? The Packers look to keep their season alive when they face the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday. Green Bay Packers tickets are the hottest of Week 15, at $232 on average.
12/2/13 - Cheesehead Nation did not enjoy their holiday after suffering a gut-wrenching defeat Thanksgiving morning, routed 10-40 by the Detroit Lions (who have taken ownership of the NFC North). Green Bay is now dangerously close to missing a postseason opportunity. They must win out all of their games for a chance at playoffs, a viable outcome, as Aaron Rodgers may start again in Week 14 when they face the Atlanta Falcons—be there for a chance to see the All-Pro QB Packers fans have been dying to see! Green Bay Packers tickets are only $108 on average for Rodgers’ possible return.
11/25/13 - In a rare outcome, the Green Bay Packers tied the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday (26-26), making the NFC North race even tighter! Backup QB Matt Flynn ignited fire on the chilly day, racking up enough points to erase a 16-point deficit in the fourth quarter. Both teams were held to field goals in overtime, resulting in the draw, which is better than the losses the Packers have been suffering since the absence of Rodgers. Next week, the Packers will play division rivals, the Detroit Lions, at Ford Field for a Turkey Day rematch. Be there to cheer on your favorites in the north as the squads face off! Green Bay Packers tickets a lofty $108 at the lowest, and average at $190 Thanksgiving Day.
11/18/13- The Green Bay Packers have slipped to 5-5 with a gut-wrenching loss to the New York Giants, yesterday afternoon,13-27. The Packers gave the G-Men their fourth straight win on their road to improvement, while Cheesehead Nation is sincerely missing their quarterback, as Jason Pierre-Paul scored a 4th quarter pick-6 return on Scott Tolzien. Eddie Lacy, who has been a very reliable rusher for GB, was highly pressured on Sunday, with 14 carries for 27 yards. Green Bay Packers host the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12: tickets are $34 at the lowest, and $176 on average.
11/11/13 - The Green Bay Packers lost to the Philadelphia Eagles at home yesterday, 27-13. Throttled by injuries, the Packers started their third quarterback in three weeks, when practice squad QB Scott Tolzien relieved Seneca Wallace from a groin strain. Other integral players Casey Hayward, Don Barclay and DE Johnny Jolly all left with injuries as well. Tolzien, now starting, finished with 24 of 38 and 280 yards and one TD on Sunday, a performance that may be enough to oust the New York Giants in Week 10. Green Bay Packers tickets are $277 on average, and $31 to get in.
11/5/13 - The Green Bay Packers fell to rivals the Chicago Bears, 27-20, on Monday Night Football. In a face-off that was favored to go Green Bay’s way (because of Jay Cutler’s absence), the Packers lost more than just a game yesterday. The squad lost their quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a fractured collarbone sustained in the first quarter. Luckily, the injury is minor, but the team will still be without their Pro Bowl starter for at least three weeks. In his place, backup Seneca Wallace will attempt to carry the injury-ridden team through what looks like an easier schedule (Eagles, Giants, Vikings). See how the Packers fare when they attempt to hold off the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 10 without their leader; Green Bay Packers tickets are $43 to get into Lambeau, and $261 on average.
10/28/13 - The Green Bay Packers clinched their Sunday night matchup, with a convincing win over the Minnesota Vikings, 44-31. Aaron Rodgers proved his worth as one of the most accurate QBs in the league even without three of his favorite targets, delivering a monster touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson, who finished with 132 receiving yards and two TDs. Rodgers is set to have a career year, finishing Sunday night’s game 24 of 29 for 285 yards and two touchdowns, scoring on nearly every possession. Help from running backs Eddie Lacy (94 yards, 1 TD) and James Stark (57 yards, 1 TD) have propelled the Packers to the top of the NFC North, and Green Bay will look for a fifth consecutive victory next Monday, when they face the quarterback-less Chicago Bears. Green Bay Packers tickets, for Monday Night Football at Lambeau Field are the second highest of the week, averaging $241.
10/21/13 - The Green Bay Packers dominated the Cleveland Browns on Sunday 31-13 in Cheesehead Nation. Donning vintage blue and khaki uniforms, the Packers ruled the Browns and QB Brandon Weeden. Aaron Rogers helped move his team to first in the NFC North for the first time this season, after throwing three touchdowns, and maximizing usage of other wideout (with James Jones and Randall Cobb sidelined) Jarrett Boykin, who caught eight passes for 103 yards and a touchdown. Eddie Lacy, the heart of the Packers running game, made an excellent showing on Sunday with 83 yards rushing and a touchdown. Unfortunately, tight end Jermichael Finley sustained a serious injury to his neck that sent him to the ICU, after being unable to move on the field from a scary hit to the head in the third quarter. Green Bay Packers tickets when they next meet the only undefeated team in the league left, the Kansas City Chiefs, are averaging $110 in hostile territory.
10/14/13 - Green Bay defeated the Baltimore Ravens 19-17 on the road, but it was a costly triumph, as the Packers lost two integral wide receivers during the course of Sunday’s win. Adding even more length to a long list of major injured players, James Jones is day-to-day and Randall Cobb will be out for multiple weeks following a controversial low hit to the knees; they join sideliners Clay Matthews, James Star, Brad Jones, Casey Howard and Nick Perry. The Packers are showing great resilience in the face of this adversity: because the offense is dropping like flies, Packers defense has stepped it up, and Sunday’s game proved it. Green Bay stomped out the Ravens, holding them to just 47 rushing yards, shutting down RBs Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce, allotting only 2.1 yard per carry. Week 7 will see the Cleveland Browns at Lambeau Field, Green Bay Packers tickets are among the higher priced games of the week at $206 on average.
10/7/13 - The Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers came back off their bye week, and had a solid victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday, holding them 22-9. The Packers threw 30 times and ran it 33 times, displaying their balanced offense and prolonging their at-home winning streak (23 victories) over division opponents. The play of the game came from James Jones, who made a breathtaking 83-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the third quarter. The Packers capitalized on the Megatron-less Lions, held Reggie Bush to 44 yards on 13 carries and the front seven delivered five sacks to Matt Stafford, a quarterback who previously sustained just three sacks through four weeks. Green Bay will now head to Maryland to play the 3-2 Baltimore Ravens. Green Bay Packers tickets average at a pricey $310, but drop to just $20 to get in.
9/30/13 - The Green Bay Packers are coming off their bye week to face the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field. Back in action, the boys will get to work and try to overcome NFC North pack leaders the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions. The Packers have an excellent at home record, having won eight consecutive regular season games at Lambeau Field; in fact, Green Bay’s 21-game at home winning streak over their next opponent the Detroit Lions, is the longest run in NFL history, and the Packers will attempt to proliferate their record next Sunday. Despite their loss to the Bengals in Week 3, rookie running back Jonathan Franklin rushed for 103 yards and had one touchdown, becoming the first rookie to rush over 100 yards in a regular season game since 2007. Green Bay Packers tickets against the Lions are the second most expensive seats of the week (following the Saints v. Bears matchup), averaging $421 and a steep $136 to get in.
9/24/13 - The Packers faced a disappointing loss on Sunday to the Bengals who came back from an unanswered 30 points put up by Aaron Rodgers and company. The Green Bay Packers are 1-2, with each game being determined by a couple close points. Week 4 is Green Bay’s bye week, which should give the team ample enough time to recuperate from a number of injuries including running back James Stark, tight end Jermichael Finley, rookie Johnathan Franklin, and key linebacker Clay Matthews.
Green Bay Packers 2014 Season
4/28/14 – It’s official, the Pack will kick off the regular season in Seattle in a Fail Mary rematch. The league opener is the second most expensive game on the entire NFL schedule
(avg. $566). Another big Thursday night matchup for the Packers is when NFC North Division rival Minnesota Vikings visit Green Bay Oct 2. The Pack will be coming off a short week, traveling to Chicago to face the Bear September 28 in incontestably one of the best rivalries in all of sports. In a road game averaging $398, Julius Peppers will return to the Windy City for the first time. Cheeseheads, if you’re looking to travel to a game this year, make sure the meeting in New Orleans with the Saints is on top of your list; it is sure to be a shootout as Rodgers takes on Brees down South on October 26. Green Bay Packers tickets at home this season are down 56% compared to this time last year, averaging $264 on the secondary market.
Can Aaron Rodgers lead the iconic Green Bay Packers back to the promised land of the Super Bowl? One thing is for certain: If they do make it, they shouldn’t have much difficulty adjusting to conditions in February at the site, MetLife Stadium in New Jersey — the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field tends to be on the chilly side as well. Rodgers’ passing is the heart of the Packer offense; the team was ninth in average passing yards per game last season, but just 20th in rushing yards.
Leading rusher Alex Green will have competition for the featured rusher from second-round draft pick Eddie Lacy from Alabama, and Jonathan Franklin from UCLA, picked up in the fourth round. Receivers Randall Cobb and James Jones will be expected to continue their success, while recent headlines indicate that longtime star (and dancing champ) Donald Driver would come out of retirement if the team asked.
Defensively the Pack will be trying to improve their middle-of-the-league statistics, while negotiating a tough schedule which includes visits to both Super Bowl XLVII competitors (49ers, Ravens), as well as a possible matchup with Robert Griffin III (if healthy) and the Washington Redskins at Lambeau Field, along with the always important divisional games with the rest of the Black and Blue Division: Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings. Expect to see lots of fireworks this season at the historic frozen tundra of Lambeau.
In addition to tough road games, NFC North division rivalries, and matchups with today's best NFL stars, the 2013 Packers schedule also features a key NFC game with Atlanta in early December that could have playoff implications. Atlanta Falcons vs. Green Bay Packers tickets will be red hot. Not only will the Sunday Night game on December 8th feature two of the League's top quarterbacks in Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan, but both the Packers and Falcons will have an eye on top NFC seeds in the 2013 NFL Playoffs. Falcons vs. Packers ticket prices start at $122 in the lower level end zones. It's one of the best Packers deals of any home game during the 2013 season. Seats between the 30 and 50-yard lines range from $221 - $446, with tickets on the Packers sideline costing a little bit more.
