Packers can survive injuries
With improving ground game and top QB, Green Bay's offense should sustain
Every NFL season is beset with injuries that negatively impact a team's seasonal aspirations, and the 2013 campaign is no different. The Falcons' Super Bowl hopes have faltered with injuries to Julio Jones, Roddy White and Steven Jackson. The Bears' playoff goals will be tested by the loss of Jay Cutler. Tom Brady is going through possibly the worst stretch of his career in part because Rob Gronkowski has been in the lineup for only one game this year.
While Green Bay's offense would certainly be in better shape if those three were healthy, the truth of the matter is that the Packers' offense is so talent-rich that it shouldn't miss a beat without them.
