Join us as we cheer the Packers on to a seventh victory of the 2014 season!

This afternoon, two teams with Super Bowl aspirations will take the field on a cold, possibly snowy day in Northeastern Wisconsin. The 6-3 Green Bay Packers play host to the 7-2 Philadelphia Eagles today in a battle of last year's division winners.

The Packers come in relatively healthy, as all of the team's starters are expected to play. The Eagles, however, will start Mark Sanchez at quarterback due to Nick Foles' broken collarbone. Sanchez has played relatively well in relief of Foles, but he will be put to the test in weather that is not expected to exceed 25 degrees during the game.

The Packers, on the other hand, are feeling the pressure of being a game behind the division rival Lions, who sit at 7-2 and in the lead in the NFC North. They'll need a win to catch Detroit, who plays the NFC-leading Arizona Cardinals at the same time.

Sit back, enjoy today's game, and keep your browsers tuned to Acme Packing Company as we update you on the game and discuss the events of the first half here in today's game threads.
