It had been speculated whether the 13-1 Packers would begin to sit players toward the end of the season, since they have already clinched an NFC North division title over the 9-5 Detroit Lions. The Packers lost their first game of the season last week 14-19 to Kansas City. Jennings has led the Packers with 67 receptions this season, and currently ranks second on the team with nine touchdown receptions. Buluga and Clifton have served major roles on the offensive line that has allowed quarterback Aaron Rodgers to orchestrate one of the best offenses in the NFL this year.
