Green Bay Packers sign OSU's Lane Taylor to extension

Will it be a repeat two-for for the NFC North. Yes, it does help to have a Favre followed by a Rodgers.

Do you think the Green Bay Packers or Seattle Seahawks will win this Week 1 matchup? Dial is a good example.

Jones thanked Packers fans as well.

"I don't really get to make that decision", Adams told Rob Demovsky of ESPN. "This is a great defense", McCarthy said. He averaged about 7 or 8 sacks a year, and I believe I can do the same thing.

If the Seahawks can pressure Rodgers and force turnovers, they'll win. They had the best team.

The Detriot Lions parted ways with backup tackle Cornelius Lucas, who played in 35 games and started six of them in his three years with the team. The Vikings also have led the division in fewest yards, points and third-down conversions allowed in each of the past two seasons. Chancellor, a first-time captain in 2014, was one of Seattle's four captains past year, making 2017 his third campaign with a "C" on his chest.

Circle this game on the schedule: Vikings at Packers, Dec. 23 - The Saturday game on Christmas weekend could be huge if the Vikings are in a position to challenge the Packers for the division title. Detroit was next at No. 13 (22.4).

When the Seahawks traveled to Green Bay last December, Nagel was all over the Packers as three-point underdogs.

For the first time in a decade, the Minnesota Vikings are opening a season without Adrian Peterson. Chicago was next at No. 14 (20.1). "You try to be the best and do the best that you can", Thompson replied earlier in camp when asked if he'd freshened up his roster-building approach.

Then word came toward the end of practice that James Jones was officially calling it a career. So, we'll see how it goes.

The Packers also addressed a need at tight end by signing Bennett and Lance Kendricks in free agency. Previous year it led to him setting an all time record for completion percentage, but he just averaged seven yards per completion. In that game, he hauled in five passes for 51 yards.

And the Bears were, well, the Bears.

Wide receiver James Jones has retired following a nine-year National Football League career spent mostly with the Green Bay Packers.

That, of course, is another matter entirely.

So which side of Seahawks-Packers should you take?
