Broncos have Packers guessing

That they don't know who Denver's feature back will be makes the Packers' task this weekend even tougher.

The Green Bay Packers have visions of the playoffs dancing in their heads, but in order to turn their dreams into reality they'll need to defeat the Denver Broncos in Lambeau Field on Sunday.

In order to do that, they'll have to stop the Broncos' powerful running game, a task that will be made more difficult because the Packers don't know who Denver's feature back will be.

The Broncos just finished ripping off 227 yards rushing against the Indianapolis Colts, and 136 yards of that came surprisingly from the diminutive Quentin Griffin. But Griffin might take a back seat to fullback Mike Anderson this weekend, that is, if Clinton Portis doesn't return from a high-ankle sprain.
