Packers Show Signs Of Life

Is the Pack back, just in time for the invasion of the 5-0
Chiefs? It sure looked like it on Sunday, when Green Bay rolled
to a 35-13 win over the previously unbeaten Seahawks. After
punting on their opening series, the Packers had five consecutive
touchdown drives, covering a total of 292 yards in 44 plays. On
bootleg passes Brett Favre hit seven of eight for 97 yards and
one touchdown.... Hokey Motivational Ploy of the Week: Through
his team's 0-4 start, Jaguars rookie coach Jack Del Rio told his
players to "keep chopping wood," and he even put a tree stump and

at the stump. On Sunday, Jacksonville gave Del Rio the first win
of his coaching career, 27-21 over the Chargers.
