AIKMAN: PACKERS FINALLY PLAYING LIKE WE ALL THOUGHT THEY WOULD – NFL on FOX lead game analyst Troy Aikman was in the booth for Green Bay’s 31-3 win over NFC North division rival Minnesota Vikings Sunday and was impressed with what he saw. “There are just a lot of things to like about the Green Bay Packers. First and foremost, they’re well coached. Head Coach Mike McCarthy and defensive coordinator Dom Capers have been outstanding. During our broadcast, we talked about all of the injuries that they’ve had to overcome but yet they’ve done it and not used it as an excuse. They’ve played some of their best football over these last three games. I can see them continue to get better. This is a dangerous football team.”
