Green Bay streaks into bye week despite rash of injuries
Desperately needed break
GREEN BAY, Wis. – The Green Bay Packers had a powerful incentive to beat the Arizona Cardinals.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy gave his banged-up team the whole week off after the Packers beat Arizona 31-17 Sunday. Less than a minute after Arizona kicked a 20-yard field goal to pare what had been a 17-point lead to a touchdown, Tom Crabtree chugged 72 yards for a late third-quarter score that sealed the victory.
"It's amazing what they'll do for an extra day off," McCarthy said. "It's well deserved. I think it's important for us to just step away, so we'll have a week off."
