The Green Bay Packers had everyone at the beginning of the year asking "What's wrong with the Packers?". Despite their slow start to the season they have now ripped off  four wins in a row yielding a record of 5 and 2 and having everyone believing everything is fine again in Packers land.  Aaron Rodger over that four game span has thrown for 977 yards, 13 touchdowns and only one interception. Helping Rodgers along the way is the stellar play of wide out Jordy Nelson. Nelson is ranked number two in the NFL in receiving yards at 712. Nelson also has six touchdowns in 7 games which ranks second on the team behind Randall Cobb who already has 8 touchdowns over that same span.

The folks in New Orleans may still be asking "What's wrong with the Saints?". A preseason favorite to once again be one of the top teams in the NFL, the Saints find themselves sitting at only 2 and 4 after six games. A loss this evening would see the Saints matching their loss total from all of last season. Luckily for the Saint's their division, usually one of the strongest in the NFL is led by the Carolina Panthers at only 3-3 and 1. Most of the Saints issues have come on the defensive side of the ball where they are giving up just over 270 yards through the air per game which has them ranked 28th in the NFL in passing defense. The Saints are also giving up just over 27 points a game which has them likewise ranked 28th in that category.
