GREEN BAY http://www.bengalscheapstore.com/germaine-pratt-jersey-cheap , Wis. — As the Packers look to end their road futility, coach Mike McCarthy would like to see another turn of events transpire when they play the rival Minnesota Vikings in prime time on Sunday.“We definitely need turnovers,” McCarthy said Friday. “That’s always been a staple of our success here, and Sunday night will hopefully be that game.”Easier said than done, however.More Packers coverage from FOX Sports WisconsinPhotos of the Week: 7/21/19 – 7/27/19Packers rookie Gary’s biggest critic is himselfTop Tweets: Former Badger TJ Watt has impressive four-year transformationPHOTOS: 2019 Green Bay Packers training campPackers’ Rodgers, LaFleur ironing out offense, building chemistryNot only is Green Bay’s playoff hopes teetering because of an 0-5 record away from Lambeau Field, but its defense is struggling to take away the football.“We need that,” veteran linebacker Clay Matthews said. “I think we’ve played really good defense. It’s just that the turnovers haven’t really been in our favor.”The Packers (4-5-1) rank among the NFL’s best this season defending the pass, bolstered by 34 sacks, but they are near the bottom with only 12 takeaways. Just six of those have been interceptions – three by Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, who’s no longer on the Packers.It’s been that type of head-scratching season in Green Bay.“It’s tough, man,” said veteran defensive back Tramon Williams. “Out of the sacks Ryan Finley Jersey , the big plays haven’t been coming, the ill-advised throws haven’t been coming. We’ve just kind of been getting sacks, and that’s it, not making a big-impact play off it.”Not helping matters is a Packers secondary that has been shuffled by roster turnover and injuries for most of the season.“We’ve still got guys who are very capable of getting the job done,” asserted Williams, who switched from cornerback to safety three games ago after the Packers sent Clinton-Dix to Washington in a surprising midseason trade.Just who will line up with Williams on the back end of Green Bay’s defense against the Vikings’ dangerous passing game is uncertain.7<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:Upon Further Review: Packers at SeahawksAP | APThe Packers have four defensive backs on the injury report. Starting safety Kentrell Brice, who missed Green Bay’s last game with an ankle injury, and cornerbacks Kevin King (hamstring) and Bashaud Breeland (groin) are all questionable to play Sunday.“As I tell the staff, as the injuries pile up and we’re continuing to have to juggle, I say, ‘Check the mail. There’s not going to be any sympathy cards from around the league,'” first-year Packers defensive coordinator Mike Pettine said.Especially from the Vikings (5-4-1), who are just ahead of Green Bay in second place in the NFC North and have the league’s most prolific pass-catching tandem with Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs.The Packers had only one takeaway – an interception by Clinton-Dix – as the combination of quarterback Kirk Cousins (425 passing yards, four touchdowns) http://www.bengalscheapstore.com/renell-wren-jersey-cheap , Thielen and Diggs rallied Minnesota from a late 13-point deficit to a 29-29 tie at Green Bay in Week 2.What remains of Green Bay’s secondary hopes to flip the script in the rematch. Indicative of their struggles on the road, the Packers have forced just two turnovers in those five games.“We’ve just got to do our job on the back end and get the ball,” rookie cornerback Jaire Alexander said.NOTES: The Packers’ defense will be without DL Mike Daniels (foot) and LB Nick Perry (knee) on Sunday. Daniels moved around in the locker room Friday on a knee scooter with a large cast on his lower left leg. Daniels isn’t sure if he will play again this season after suffering the injury in the loss at Seattle on Nov. 15. … WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) and TE Jimmy Graham, who broke a thumb in the last game, also are questionable for Sunday night. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Breaking his left ankle and having his career put in jeopardy has given New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. a new perspective on life and football.Speaking to reporters here for the first time since getting hurt in a game in early October, Beckham on Saturday was thankful to be back on the field and seemingly more relaxed and more mature.The 25-year-old said he was not worrying about upcoming contract talks, even though he admits he is taking a calculated risk being in training camp coming off an injury and in the final year of his rookie contract.“I literally watched my world turn upside down,” said Beckham, whose ankle snapped in a game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Oct. 8. “I watched relationships close to me devour and things go wrong, and things go sideways. It was a lot of pain that I went through the last 10 months.“So, just kind of taking it day by day and trying my best to just make my mindset every day that I wake up I am going to be happy,” the three-time Pro Bowler said. “I am going to do this right. I am going to do the very best that I can in whatever it is, whatever it is I am doing. I changed my mindset and it has helped me a lot in everything.”The 10-month rehabilitation was not only tough Michael Jordan Jersey , Beckham also had to deal with reports that the Giants were considering trading him and the never-ending social media tweets and video about his life off the field.Beckham called the trade talk rumor and noise that he has now learned to ignore.“I remember I used to say all the time: ‘Don’t take it personal’ and stuff, but I still took things personal and I really have gotten that out of my heart to not take anything personal,” he said. “And with doing that, it’s left things that I used to worry about out of the equation. So, once you can really put that in your heart, don’t take it personal and you can feel that, it’s a completely different story.”Beckham’s agent Zeke Sandhu was at the Giants’ workout Thursday and was seen speaking to assistant general manager Kevin Abrams for almost two hours on the patio overlooking the field.Beckham had said he wants to be the highest paid receiver in the game and that has not changed. However, he said he is leaving the contract talks in the hands of his agent and when something happens, it happens. He added if a deal isn’t completed before the start of the season, he would cross that bridge at that time.“I’m confident it’ll all work itself out,” Beckham said, who is scheduled to make $8.5 million this season. “Life always does.”Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers is considered the highest paid receiver, earning an average $17 million on a four-year deal.For now, being back on the field is fun. He is enjoying working with coach Pat Shurmur and said the new offense gives him the opportunity to line up in a lot of different spots.“I love football http://www.raidersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-hunter-renfrow-jersey ,” Beckham said. “Football was always an (release) for me, it was always how I could get everything out, and just being able to be back out on the field like I said, I remember waking up 4 (o’clock) in the morning and crawling upstairs to my bed and laughing to myself, like this is going to be a hell of a ride for you to get back to where you’re at.“And now I’m here, and there’s still a lot more for me to do. It’s truly, I’m just thankful; that God is able to put me back out there,” he said.Since being drafted in the first round in 2014, Beckham has played 47 games and has 313 catches for 4,424 yards and 38 touchdowns.The 25-year-old Beckham says his rehabilitation was long and painful. He says there were nights he had to crawl up three flights of stairs to get to his bedroom. The three-time Pro Bowler says he has made significant strides in the past two months is still not 100 percent.
