Why Green Bay Packers Will Win

Turnovers.

The Patriots have killed themselves with eight giveaways in the first three games, costing them the Miami game and making life easier for Baltimore last week.

What's Going To Happen

This is going to be a grind for both sides.

New England will try not to lose it with Hoyer under center, but the Green Bay run defense and pass rush will take over.

Rams become 8th defending Super Bowl champ with losing mark

The Los Angeles Rams are having a Super Bowl hangover unlike any other. The defending champions are assured of being the eighth team to have a losing record the year after winning it all and are one loss shy of the most losses ever for a team defending a Super Bowl title. The injury-plagued Rams (3-9) have the worst record ever through 12 games for a defending champion and are the first of those teams to lose six straight the year after winning a Super Bowl.
