Prior to the 2018 season Clay Matthews Jersey , the Los Angeles Rams probably had their games against the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings circled on their calendar as some of the biggest contests of the season. And both were highly competitive, with the Rams winning 38-31 over the Vikings and 29-27 over the Packers.However, it’s this week instead that the Rams face the leaders of the NFC North, as they travel to Chicago to play the Bears on Sunday Night Football. The NFL certainly got this one right on the schedule, as the two teams have a combined record of 19-5. It should be fun to see how veteran defensive coordinators Vic Fangio and Wade Phillips scheme against the offenses that Sean McVay and Matt Nagy run.Earlier today, the Packers will face the Falcons in the early time slot, in a matchup of two underachieving teams. Tune in for the games and follow along here.Early GamesAll games below kick off at 1:00 PM ETBaltimore Ravens at Kansas City ChiefsArrowhead StadiumKansas City Blake Martinez Color Rush Jersey , MOCBSNew England Patriots at Miami DolphinsHard Rock StadiumMiami, FLCBSIndianapolis Colts at Houston TexansNRG StadiumHouston, TXCBSNew York Jets at Buffalo BillsNew Era FieldBuffalo, NYCBSAtlanta Falcons at Green Bay PackersLambeau FieldGreen Bay, WIFOXNew York Giants at WashingtonFedEx FieldLandover, MDFOXNew Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay BuccaneersRaymond James StadiumTampa, FLFOXCarolina Panthers at Cleveland BrownsFirstEnergy StadiumCleveland https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Dave-Robinson-Jersey , OHFOXLate GamesCincinnati Bengals at Los Angeles Chargers1:05 PM PT (4:05 ET)StubHub CenterCarson, CACBSDenver Broncos at San Francisco 49ers1:05 PM PT (4:05 ET)Levi’s StadiumSanta Clara, CACBSPhiladelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys3:25 PM CT (4:25 ET)AT&T StadiumArlington, TXFOXPittsburgh Steelers at Oakland Raiders1:25 PM PT (4:25 ET)Oakland County ColiseumOakland, CAFOXDetroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals2:25 PM MT (4;25 ET)State Farm StadiumGlendale, AZFOXSunday Night FootballLos Angeles Rams at Chicago Bears7:20 PM CT (8:20 ET)Soldier FieldChicago, ILNBC Matt LaFleur’s offense requires more than an occasional fullback dive." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesAcme Packing Company homepageHorizontal - WhiteAcme Packing Companya Green Bay Packers communityFollow Acme Packing Company online:Follow Acme Packing Company on TwitterFollow Acme Packing Company on FacebookFollow Acme Packing Company on InstagramLog in or sign upLog InSign UpSite searchSearchSearchAcme Packing Company main menuFanpostsFanshotsSectionsPackersOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 321 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTThe role of the fullback has gone through multiple evolutions the past decade or so in the NFL with many teams choosing either to not even carry one or change it to more of an H-back role.Under Mike McCarthy Aaron Jones Jersey , the Green Bay Packers still utilized a fullback in the traditional sense: as a blocker in the backfield or as a ball carrier in short-yardage situations. With McCarthy now out and Matt LaFleur in, what does that mean for the future of the fullback in the Green Bay offense?According to the history of the offense LaFleur is installing, they’re going to keep one and they’re going to maximize the position which is good news for Danny Vitale.He won’t be counted on just for blocking and short runs, but also to catch passes out of the backfield as well as contribute on special teams. That’s good news for Vitale on the latter part because he was in Cleveland with Packers special teams coordinator Sean Mennenga. Vitale bulked up in the weight room during the offseason in anticipation of an increased workload and he’s shown he can be a multi-dimensional player when he was at Northwestern and turned enough heads that the Browns drafted him in the sixth round in 2016.If you’re looking for a dark horse in the new Packers’ offense, keep an eye on Vitale. The numbers might not stand out but his tape just might.Danny Vitale looks to show he’s more than just a fullback—Packers.comUtilizing a fullback for more than a foolish dive on third and short might seem new to Packers fans but LaFleur’s offense places importance on the fullback.Pressure mounting on Vikings’ Mike Zimmer to produce in the postseason—PackersNews.comWith McCarthy gone, Mike Zimmer is now the elder statesman of coaches in the NFC North.
