NEW YORK (AP) - Comments on the Green Bay Packers by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
---
GREEN BAY PACKERS (7)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 8) - Important division win.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 11) - Best football could be ahead if they get healthier in December.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 8)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 5) - Need to get the horses back on defense and they have to protect Rodgers better (sacked 39 times already).
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 9) - Nice bounce-back from Green Bay after a rare clunker against the Giants the week before. Even so, that run defense is still a huge issue.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 7) - Aaron Rodgers has been sacked more than any NFL quarterback this season - 39 times.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 7) - Considering their history vs. Chicago, the Packers should win their division. Of course, they should do a better job of protecting their quarterback, too.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 6) - Aaron Rodgers and Matt Stafford might combine for 900 yards passing at Lambeau.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 8) - Aaron Rodgers seems like he's running for his life and if the line doesn't protect him he may not last the whole season.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 6) - Health may be the only thing holding the Pack back. Good news: Greg Jennings is back and Charles Woodson and Clay Matthews appear close to coming back. Bad news: WR Jordy Nelson is now out with a hamstring injury.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 9) - Minnesota's Adrian Peterson deserved the spotlight for a 210-yard effort, but let's not forget Green Bay rushed for 152 yards in last Sunday's 23-14 win.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 7) - Greg Jennings back; Jordy Nelson out. Been that kind of year in Green Bay.
