Packers OL aims to keep Rodgers upright vs. Saints

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- For all the Green Bay Packers' complaints about a mistake by replacement officials that cost them a game Monday night, they probably wouldn't have been in position to lose on a last-second play if their offensive line had done a better job protecting Aaron Rodgers.

Going into Sunday's home game against New Orleans, the Packers will have to do a better job keeping Rodgers upright after he was sacked eight times by the Seahawks.

Rodgers has been sacked a league-high 16 times in three games, one reason why the Packers have scored only four offensive touchdowns to date.

Left guard T.J. Lang says, "It's obviously embarrassing as a group when your quarterback's getting sacked eight times in one half."
