It didn't take long for Aaron Rodgers to make Packers believe

  • Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will lead his team against the New England Patriots on Sunday

That's what Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton did on Sunday, taunting the Green Bay Packers before throwing for a touchdown.

Looking for that unique holiday gift to give this year, if even to yourself? I think it's quite likely the National Football League will suspend Davis for a game for that hit - very similar hits have already drawn one-game suspensions this season.

Despite his rocky performance, Rodgers was able to lead a minute-long drive with three minutes remaining to bring his team back to within seven, and there was late drama when McCaffrey couldn't hold onto the onside kick and the Packers recovered with more than enough time to win the game.

After not catching a pass last week against the Vikings, Olsen had nine catches for 116 yards and a touchdown Sunday. When another underthrown pass by Rodgers was intercepted by Jones, Adams was wiped out on a block by Carolina linebacker Thomas Davis.

Davis was flagged, but not ejected for the hit and was visibly remorseful on the sideline.

The Seahawks lost Sunday, while the Falcons play Monday night.

However, McGregor was quick to rule out the same, saying, "I think a true fight is what I want to do next". In a chance interview with entertainment website TMZ , McGregor said he wants to be in a "real fight".

That included Carolina's defense, which forced four turnovers, including a strip by cornerback James Bradberry on Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison with 1:28 to seal the win and prevent the Packers from possibly playing in their third straight overtime game. Panthers safety Mike Adams then fell on the ball to secure the victory. It was nearly as if they could all breathe again, not so much that the Packers had regained the lead at 14-10, but because Rodgers had passed one of his biggest physical tests of the afternoon. Rodgers completed his first passing attempt of the day, a ho-hum 12-yarder to Davante Adams, which seemed to indicate there wasn't any rust for the former NFL MVP. Each of his three interceptions were the result of underthrowing his receivers, including a third-quarter pick on a pass intended for a streaking Cobb. Old friend Julius Peppers took down Rodgers for the sack, stopping the drive that moved all the way to the Carolina 21-yard line without scoring.

Now the Packers need a lot of help to get into the postseason. Newton hit Damiere Byrd for his first career touchdown - it came after Panthers head coach Ron Rivera challenged what was called an incomplete pass when Byrd appeared at first glance to have not gotten down inbounds.

The Panthers put up 287 yards of offense on the Packers, whose injury-plagued defense entered as the third-worst on third downs.

McCaffrey finished with 12 carries for 63 yards and six catches for 73 yards.

Rookie Christian McCaffrey was dominant early on.
