Email

The Green Bay Packers will start practicing today (Wednesday) for their NFC North division battle at Minnesota on Sunday.

Among other things, they hope to return to the positive side of the turnover ledger.

The Packers lead the NFL with 13 interceptions and five picks returned for touchdowns, but Green Bay committed two key turnovers in last Sunday's loss at Tennessee, while the Titans played a clean game.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw an interception and lost a fumble in that contest and three other potential interceptions fell harmlessly to the ground.

In three of the Packers' four victories, they had late interceptions which helped seal those wins.

One of them was against the Vikings on Opening Night, when Atari Bigby picked off a pass that killed Minnesota's final drive. Green Bay then held on for a five-point victory.
