Clinton-Dix also earned his first Pro Bowl selection on Tuesday.

The Bears trailed the Packers by just eight points with about four minutes left and had driven inside the Green Bay 30-yard line when Matthews stepped in front of Chicago TE Martellus Bennett, picked off QB Jay Cutler’s pass and ran all the way into Chicago territory. The turnover set up the clinching TD drive that sealed a season-opening victory.

I know the average football fan eats up the free-agent frenzy and that’s why media outlets have to report on rumored free-agent movement and trades, but it gets to be so reckless at times. It was rumored the Packers would attempt to trade for Martellus Bennett. I can’t imagine a scenario in which either team would want to hand something over to a divisional opponent that would be beneficial. Do you really think there is a scenario in which there could be any validity to a rumor like that?

“I learned a lot from Tom last year about how to communicate better with the quarterback. I speak several different quarterback languages, and I just have to learn which one to speak to Aaron now.”

Kendricks, who joins the Packers after six seasons with the Rams, is already opening that line of communication. Over the last two years, he has trained in the offseason at the same Thousand Oaks, Calif., facility where Rodgers, Clay Matthews and David Bakhtiari work out as well.

“I hated playing against Aaron,” said Bennett with a laugh. “I just got off the phone with him, I said, ‘I hate that guy on the other side,’ but it’s going to be pretty good to be on Green Bay Packers jerseys the same side with him and catching passes. I’ve seen him make a lot of amazing throws and he’s been one of the best for a really long time. I’m just going to try to come in and contribute to the best of my ability.”

Bennett has played a few games inside Lambeau Field as an opposing player. He fondly remembers it for its unique atmosphere and good playing conditions.

As for what Bennett and Kendricks might be able to do on the field together as a dynamic pair of tight ends, Bennett said as long as both are effective as blockers and pass-catchers, defenses will have a decision to make whether to have more coverage defenders or run-stoppers on the field.

The talent always has been there for Clinton-Dix, but both he and Perry agree the young safety is acting more on his instincts this year. He’s also improved his tackling, reducing his missed tackles from double-digits as a rookie to significantly less the past two seasons.

Clinton-Dix was tossed into the leadership fire early last season when Burnett missed five games with a hamstring injury. It was a tough spot considering Burnett often serves as the lead communicator and quarterback of the secondary.Nike Packers #87 Jordy Nelson Green Team Color Men's Stitched NFL Limited Strobe Jersey

His absence forced Clinton-Dix to be more vocal in his declarations. He worked to develop chemistry with Burnett’s replacement, Micah Hyde, and the two helped stem the tide until the veteran safety’s return after the Week 6 bye.

Packers S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 15. The third-year safety intercepted two passes from Bears QB Matt Barkley on back-to-back series in the third quarter on Sunday in Chicago, both setting up touchdowns for Green Bay’s offense in the victory.

Contrast that with 2013, the year before Clinton-Dix’s arrival, when a hamstring injury kept Burnett sidelined for the first three games of the year. The Packers went 1-2 and gave up more than 30 points in each of the two losses. The defense lacked a reliable safety complement to Burnett, and without him, the dropoff was noticeable.

Clinton-Dix is now tied for the league lead among safeties with five interceptions. The Giants’ Landon Collins also has five. This is the first player of the week award for Clinton-Dix, a first-round draft pick out of Alabama in 2014.

Then last year, the Vikings intercepted Rodgers in the end zone with two minutes left to preserve their seven-point victory and end Green Bay’s four-year reign atop the division.

The Packers saw that first-hand when Stafford brought the Lions back from a 31-3 deficit to get within 34-27 in Week 3 at Lambeau Field.

Gentlemen, I’m a Packers fan from Michigan heading to Detroit on Sunday. My ticket has quadrupled its value since I bought it, but there is no way that I’m selling it. I will be with a group of friends, most of them Lions fans, but I fully expect Packer Nation to show up and show up big!

“We’d love to get Randall back this week to get everybody back, but we’ve seen a lot of different guys step up,” said Rodgers this week. “Almost a different guy every week with Jordy obviously this last week, Ty the week before, Davante had a big game, Jared (Cook) had a big game in there. There’s a number of different guys who have played big roles for us.”

The Lions have ruled out RB Theo Riddick (wrist) and listed C Travis Swanson (concussion) as doubtful. CB Darius Slay (hamstring), LB DeAndre Levy (knee), and WR Andre Roberts (shoulder) are all questionable for Detroit. QB Matthew Stafford (right finger) and S Miles Killebrew (eye) have been removed from the Lions’ injury report.

Defensively, the Packers have been tested since the regular-season opener in Jacksonville when Pro Bowl cornerback Sam Shields sustained a concussion that eventually landed him on injured reserve.

Cobb missed last week’s game vs. Minnesota and hasn’t practiced all week, with the hope he might be able to do some work on the practice field Saturday. Cobb originally hurt the ankle three weeks ago vs. Seattle, returned to finish the game and then tried to play the following week at Chicago but wasn’t a factor.

A mantra of this Mike McCarthy Packers team all season has been “pursuit and finish.” Green Bay has pursued this position, a chance for a division crown, with a five-game winning streak when any miscue might have doomed the season.

“It really shows the testament of their team,” linebacker Clay Matthews said. “But it’s moreso about finishing games than knowing what they’ve done in the past.

Insiders, many hamburger sandwiches are simple to eat with one hand due to their small overall size. Many hot dogs allow for one or two hands as well. Could it be that a hot dog becomes a sandwich when the thin connecting dough between the main bun halves becomes separated, therefore resulting in said hot dog and toppings being “sandwiched” between two separate pieces of bread? This would suggest a legitimate sandwich being an arrangement of ingredients rather than the type of ingredients themselves.

The NFL made a change this year, allowing a coach in the booth to be connected directly to the player wearing the helmet speaker on the field. The call from the booth used to have to be relayed to the player from the sideline, but not anymore. As for other coaches wearing headsets, I believe they can hear the call when it’s made.
