GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The head of the NFL champions lies uneasy today, but, as the Green Bay Packers proved yesterday, the heart is working just fine.Invoking their Lambeau Field advantage, the Packers halted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' momentum -- temporarily, at least -- with a 21-16 victory that was as shaky as Green Bay's fourth-quarter defense.The ultimate winner in the Battle of the Bays may not be decided until Dec. 7, when these teams meet again in Tampa. But for now, the Packers can take solace in dealing the Bucs (5-1)

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Twenty-nine years after they won the famed "Ice Bowl" on frozen Lambeau Field, the Green Bay Packers will try to re-create a chapter from their storied past.When the Packers beat the Dallas Cowboys, 21-17, on Dec. 31, 1967, in temperatures that hit 16-below zero in the NFL championship game, it propelled them into Super Bowl II. Two weeks later, they hammered the AFL's Oakland Raiders, 33-14, to finish as champions for the third straight year.Things haven't been the same in Green Bay since.

The Jets declined to comment on the report. According to FOXSports.com, Favre spoke with Jets coach Eric Mangini and others in the New York organization for the first time late Tuesday as they tried to convince Favre he would be a good fit in New York.

In the calm before the NFL's 78th season, inventory is taken to see who has the edge on whom, where the kingpins will reside and who the doormats will be.Some conclusions are more obvious than others.The Carolina Panthers' drive to the NFC championship game last season apparently panicked the NFC West. The four other teams in the division all changed coaches in the wake of Carolina's incredible second-year success. Panthers coach Dom Capers, with all of two years under his belt, is senior man in the division.

NEW ORLEANS -- The Green Bay Packers will win Super Bowl XXXI tonight not because they are a great team, but because they have fewer weaknesses than the New England Patriots.The Packers are solid throughout their lineup."When you look at our total package, we're competitive in all three phases of the game: offense, defense and special teams," Packers offensive coordinator Sherman Lewis said. "That's more than you can say about most of the teams in this league. There are not a lot of questions to be asked about this football team."

ASHBURN, Va. - No. 4 is the No. 1 priority for the Washington Redskins' defense. After tangling with Philadelphia's Donovan McNabb, San Francisco's Jeff Garcia and New Orleans' Aaron Brooks, the Redskins' defense will face its greatest challenge - Brett Favre of the Green Bay Packers. Favre's legacy and exploits aren't far from the minds of several Washington players, who will visit the Packers for a 4:15 p.m. game at Lambeau Field on Sunday. "Greatest quarterback in the game right now," said cornerback Fred Smoot, who - like Favre - is a native of Mississippi.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Patrick Ramsey experiment might be coming to a rapid end. After the Washington Redskins dropped their second consecutive game -- a 30-9 flogging by the Green Bay Packers before a Lambeau Field record crowd of 63,363 yesterday - with Ramsey as the team's starting quarterback, coach Steve Spurrier said he might turn to former starter Shane Matthews in an attempt to reverse the team's 2-4 record. "We've got to try to put the best players out there to win the game," Spurrier said.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It looked like a Super Bowl, smelled like a Super Bowl, and quacked like a Super Bowl.If the Green Bay Packers' 41-6 demolition of the Denver Broncos yesterday at Lambeau Field was a sneak preview of Super Bowl XXXI, the AFC was better off not knowing.Playing to the overdone theme of NFC superiority, the 11-3 Packers sewed up their second straight Central Division title and left the 12-2 Broncos with a Mile High headache.At least this time there was a disclaimer.Denver quarterback John Elway, limping with a tender left hamstring, didn't play in the rout.
