Rank Among Leaders
|Packers DST can't corral Colin Kaepernick |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(1/5/14) Depleted by injuries, the Packers DST held up well for the most part against the 49ers in Sunday's playoff loss. But the unit could not contain quarterback Colin Kaepernick's running, dooming Green Bay.
Kaepernick ran seven times for 98 yards, more than half of San Francisco's 167 rushing yards. Green Bay gave up 381 total yards and 23 points.
Cornerback Tramon Williams picked off Kaepernick in the second quarter, his fourth interception this year. Linebackers Nick Perry and Brad Jones and defensive end Mike Daniels all registered sacks.
The Packers DST should be stronger in 2014 assuming top pass rusher Clay Matthews returns healthy from his broken thumb.
|Packers record late interception to clinch postseason spot |

(12/29/13) The Packers were not at their best, but managed to squeak by the Bears in Chicago in Week 17.
Green Bay had a hard time containing Chicago's running game, as Matt Forte gashed the defense for 110 yards on the ground. The defense also allowed two touchdowns and 226 yards passing from Jay Cutler. The Packers sealed the victory after Sam Shields picked off Cutler in the end zone on the final play of the game. The defense sacked Cutler once, forced two turnovers and allowed 345 yards of total offense in a 33-28 victory.
Green Bay will host the 49ers in the first round of the playoffs.
|Packers DST impotent in loss to Steelers |

(12/22/13) The Packers DST would have needed a score to become a viable Fantasy play Sunday against Pittsburgh. And they didn't get one.
All they accomplished was two turnovers - one interception and one fumble recovery. They allowed the Steelers to tally 38 points and rack up 343 total yards. And the one sack hardly made a dent.
|Short boots define day for Mason Crosby |

(12/22/13) Packers placekicker Mason Crosby didn't attempt anything beyond 22 yards Sunday against Pittsburgh. But that one was a field goal in the fourth quarter that cut the deficit to 31-24.
Crosby was perfect in five extra point attempts.
|Week 16 not the time to trust Packers DST |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(12/19/13) The Packers DST hasn't been overly reliable for Fantasy owners in the second half of the season. Since Week 9, the Packers DST has scored more than 10 Fantasy points just twice and is averaging 8.4 Fantasy points per week over the last seven games.
Week 16 might not be the time to get brave either and put the Packers DST into active Fantasy lineups. DSTs average just 8.6 Fantasy points per week and no DST has scored more than 8 Fantasy points in the last six games against Pittsburgh.
The Steelers offense has been tough to slow down lately. Pittsburgh is averaging 28 points and 358.6 yards over the last seven games.
Fantasy owners should look toward other alternatives over the Packers DST Week 16. Some other options include the Dolphins (@BUF), Lions (vs. NYG) and Chargers (vs. OAK).
