GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) As they chase their fourth consecutive NFC North title and first Super Bowl berth in more than a decade, the Green Bay Packers may rely on a different formula than usual.
The trade of All-Pro receiver Davante Adams could force the Packers to lean more on a defense that returned most of its top playmakers and added two first-round draft picks. That defense aims to take some of the pressure off reigning MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers and help him earn his second Super Bowl berth.
"When you have a quarterback like we have, if we keep doing our job building on defense, our mindset is that we want to win a world title," defensive coordinator Joe Barry said Tuesday. "We want to win a championship. That's the mindset we have every single day when we walk into this building."
