Packers face the unknown


GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (WXOW) - For the first time in a month, and just the second time since November 4th, the Packers will play a team Sunday that is not in the NFC North.

The Packers have not played Tennessee in four years. Chris Johnson, who hit the home-run Monday night against the Jets, did play against the Packers the last time these teams met, back in 2008.

Green Bay certainly knows the Titans are a struggling team, but they don't really know their personnel.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said, "I think you have to do a little more because the names aren't going to jump off the paper. You play these guys once every four years and we haven't played these guys in the pre-season in a couple of years. It's a different team."

"We've done a lot more film study as a coaching staff," said head coach Mike McCarthy. "The nights have been later because it's important to go back and look at these guys in all three phases. We feel like we have a really good plan. This is a very important game for us with the momentum we've created over the last nine weeks going 8-1. It's important for us to get this victory."

The Packers play the Titans at Lambeau Field on Sunday at 12:00 noon.
