Rest up, Packers, you're going to need it

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Good thing the Green Bay Packers are off this week.

They're going to need it.

Five of Green Bay's last seven games will be against NFC North opponents, a stretch that could prove every bit as tough for the banged-up Packers as the challenges they faced in the first half. Despite a rocky start -- Inaccurate Reception, enough said -- a four-game winning streak has the Packers back in contention for the NFC North title. They trail Chicago by 1 1/2 games.

Defensive coordinator Dom Capers says "There's always a little more intensity that comes with division games. It'll start right as soon as we get back."
