Calling Our Shots: APC’s most specific predictions for Week 12

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports APC’s writers swing for the fences again as the Packers prepare for the Eagles. Last week’s predictions included two pretty close calls. A better pass to Chigoziem Okonkwo and he probably makes it to 50 yards, if not a touchdown, on the deep ball hit caught against the Packers, and Christian Watson did score a touchdown, even if it wasn’t for more than 50 yards. This week, we’re taking even bigger swings, including big performances on both sides of the ball. Here are our called shots for Week 12. Rcon14: The Packers register their...

College Football Saturday Thread: Ohio State-Michigan should be one for the ages

College Football Saturday Thread: Ohio State-Michigan should be one for the ages

Photo by Gregory Shamus/ The 2 v. 3 matchup is the biggest one in this rivalry since 2006. 16 years ago, Ohio State and Michigan met in one of the all-time great games in college football history. The bitter rivalry was renewed in 2006 with the two teams ranked #1 and #2 in both polls and in the BCS rankings and with undefeated records. That day, the top-ranked Buckeyes emerged from the Horseshoe with a thrilling 42-39 victory and a trip to the national championship game. This Saturday is the biggest game in the rivalry since that 2006 game, as the two programs meet...

NFL Draft Prospects to Watch Before Week 12

NFL Draft Prospects to Watch Before Week 12

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports Prospects for Packers fans to watch before Sunday night. The Green Bay Packers are on the verge of being mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but the front office has already been preparing for the 2023 NFL Draft for months. A loss on Sunday night to the Philadelphia Eagles would put the Packers at just 4-8 with an insurmountable hole to dig themselves out of. On the bright side, being eliminated from postseason contention would allow the team to evaluate younger players to better understand which positions to address in the 2023...

Packers sign Patrick Taylor to practice squad, release Josh Babicz

Photo by Steven King/Icon Sportswire via Taylor was waived off the 53-man roster on Wednesday. The Green Bay Packers brought back running back Patrick Taylor almost immediately. After the team waived Taylor off of the active roster to make room for the waiver claim of outside linebacker Justin Hollins on Wednesday, Taylor has since re-signed with the Packers’ practice squad. This is Taylor’s third stint on the practice squad in 2022. He originally began the season on the practice squad, when Green Bay was only rostering two running backs on their 53-man roster. He...

Packers rookie G Sean Rhyan to serve 6 games for PED suspension

Packers rookie G Sean Rhyan to serve 6 games for PED suspension

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ Rhyan was drafted in the third round of April’s draft. The Green Bay Packers announced on Friday that their rookie guard Sean Rhyan has been suspended for the next six games without pay due to a violation of the league’s performance-enhancing substances policy. That six-game suspension with six games left extends through the end of the regular season, which means Rhyan’s action (and paychecks) is likely over for the year. Rhyan’s camp has yet to make a statement or say that they will appeal the suspension. Until then, Rhyan,...

Packers Injury Report: De’Vondre Campbell returns to practice, doubtful vs Eagles

Photo by Scott Taetsch/ Campbell had not practice since his Week 8 knee injury vs the Buffalo Bills. The Green Bay Packers were hoping that the “mini bye” following their Thursday Night Football loss to the Tennessee Titans would help the team get fresh and healthy for their Sunday Night Football matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. Unfortunately, the flu has spread around the locker room and has impacted a half-dozen players this week. The good news is that on Friday 52 of the Packers’ 53 players on their active roster were able to suit up for practice and...

Packers Film Room: A deeper dive into Christian Watson’s last two games

Photo by Larry Radloff/Icon Sportswire via A closer look at Christian Watson’s emergence and what he needs to improve the rest of the season. The Green Bay Packers offense came back down to earth last Thursday night versus the Tennessee Titans at home, losing by a score of 27-17. The tone was set early when the Packers went for a quick three-and-out after the Titans drove 83 yards in eight plays to take a 7-0 lead in their opening drive. The one bright spot continues to be rookie receiver Christian Watson, who continued his scoring spree by adding another two...

Packers vs Eagles: Can Christian Watson keep the hot streak going?

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports Can Christian Watson keep finding the end zone in Week 12? The Green Bay Packers may be struggling right now, but rookie wide receiver Christian Watson has the opportunity to keep a ridiculous hot streak going on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. After a drop in his first-ever NFL snap and multiple injuries, Watson had a hard time finding his footing at the pro level. That changed in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys when the rookie caught four passes for 107 yards and three touchdowns. Just a few days later on Thursday Night Football,...

Black Friday Cheese Curds: Packers need to channel 2016 magic against Eagles

Photo by Corey Perrine/ The situations are similar on their face, but the Packers face a bigger challenge this week than they did this weekend six years ago. On the Monday after Thanksgiving in 2016, the Green Bay Packers were in Philadelphia. The 4-6 Packers were fresh off a loss at Washington, and hopes for the postseason were dwindling to the point that Aaron Rodgers issued his famous “Run the Table” comments after that contest. That night, the Packers found a complete game, and Aaron Rodgers had a tremendous bounce-back performance. He went 30-for-39 passing for...

An early Black Friday game will help decide at least one of the teams to play in the AAC’s championship next week. Over the last few years, Black Friday has become a day of college football almost as much as it is a celebration of retail shopping. More and more intriguing games are scheduled for this day each year, including a number of in-state rivalries, particularly some that cross conference lines. This year, however, perhaps the most interesting game comes in the American Athletic Conference, where #19 Tulane visits #24 Cincinnati. The winner of that game will go on to...
