GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Good thing the Green Bay Packers are off this week.
They're going to need it.
Five of Green Bay's last seven games will be against NFC North opponents, a stretch that could prove every bit as tough for the banged-up Packers as the challenges they faced in the first half. Despite a rocky start - Inaccurate Reception, enough said - a four-game winning streak has the Packers back in contention for the NFC North title. They trail Chicago by 1 1/2 games.
Defensive coordinator Dom Capers says ``There's always a little more intensity that comes with division games. It'll start right as soon as we get back.''
