Six weeks into the NFL season, the Green Bay Packers remain a work in progress.

Superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers looks out of sync with his receivers too often, the secondary seems confused and the ever-present injury bug is impacting the team.

Rodgers doesn’t look like the same guy that topped many MVP lists the past few seasons. The precision isn’t there and when it has been, the men paid to catch the ball have been either dropping passes or watching them whiz by as they poorly run their routes.

Only outstanding play up front and by its linebackers kept Green Bay ahead of Minnesota for much of Sunday.

With Clay Matthews sidelined due to injury, A.J. Hawk was a force, sacking Joe Flacco three times. Fellow linebackers Nick Perry and Jamari Lattimore also bothered Flacco as the Super Bowl champs dropped to 3-3. Perry forced a key fumble late in the first half, allowing Green Bay to double the lead.
