Welcome to Opposition Research, where I'll be taking a look at the next Packers opponent, the Cleveland Browns (1-5).

Welcome to Opposition Research, where I'll be taking a look at the next Packers opponent, the Detroit Lions. In contrast to Week 4's monumental and record-breaking showdown with the Vikings, this week's game is a "ho hum, it’s the Lions" kind of game. The line is 13.5 and the city of Detroit cares more about the upcoming bidding for the Silverdome than this week's game. Nevertheless, I'll see what I can do to hype up the matchup between the injury-riddled Lions and the bye-rested Packers.
Welcome to Opposition Research, where I'll be taking a look at the next Packers opponent, the Minnesota Vikings. I could try to be dispassionate and approach this post like I did the one before it, but you know that’s not going to work here. Everyone in the national media is talking about this game - what it means to the Packers, what it means to Brett Favre, what it means to those fans that still can’t choose between the Packers and Brett Favre. You get the picture. So for this week, I’m going to do what I can to shed light on a few things you might not have heard about in the hype that’s already started.
