It's Monday of Super Bowl week, and sadly we have to focus on the NFL Draft and two other teams playing in this year's big game. Of course, there's still worthwhile news and content about our Packers though. Take a little break from your long Monday work day for a little snack on some curds.

Signature Stats: First Downs Allowed - Cornerbacks | ProFootballFocus
Here, the Packers appear to be in much better shape, as Sam Shields ranked 3rd and Casey Hayward 5th in fewest first downs allowed per coverage snap.
