While the Magic Number countdown has made it to the upper corner on the front page of the J-S and Miller Brewery has started projecting images supporting the team on their I-House, the tallest buildin...

Much like the NFC Championship game, Special Teams are going to be an important part of the game. The Packers were able to win the field position battle against Chicago (when no one thought they would/could) and they need to carry that momentum into the big game.
