PLAYER NOTES

QB Aaron Rodgers is progressing well from the broken collarbone he suffered on Oct. 8. Rodgers is on the injured reserve list and is eligible to play in Week 15.

"I think he's making really good progress," Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said of Rodgers. "I know the training staff and the strength and conditioning staff are very pleased with where he is. He's moving right along."

LS Brett Goode re-signed earlier in the week and the Packers are hoping he can help fix an unpredictable kicking operation.

"I'll say this: He's in really good shape," head coach Mike McCarthy said of Goode. "I think he'll jump right in there. I don't really worry much about the snapping. It's more about the footwork and protection and so forth. He's done it for a long time and he's done it at a high level, so it's great to have him back."

FANTASIZING

Jordy Nelson was one of the top receivers selected in most fantasy drafts. Today, it's tough to justify having Nelson in your lineup. Over the last three games, Nelson has just eight catches for 68 yards and no touchdowns. Nelson doesn't have the same chemistry with backup quarterback Brett Hundley that he did with Aaron Rodgers. And Davante Adams has passed Nelson as Green Bay's "go-to" wideout.

Unless your roster is devoid of talent at the receiver position, Nelson belongs on the bench.

PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: LB Blake Martinez has had a terrific second season. Martinez is sixth in the NFL in tackles (76) and has been arguably the Packers' best defender.

"Blake's playing very good football," Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said. "I think the biggest improvement or, I think, the key has clearly been his availability. Last year, he fought through a couple different injuries. Now you're seeing what he's able to do when he's out there each and every week, especially each and every practice. I just think you're seeing a young man really coming into his own. There's a lot of things we liked about him last year. He just had the injury situation. He's injury-free and playing extremely well."



GAME PLAN:
The Ravens rank 28th in rushing defense, allowing 125.9 yards per game. On the flip side, Baltimore is No. 3 in pass defense (184.7). While the Packers try to survive with a backup quarterback, look for Green Bay to hammer away Sunday with running back Jamaal Williams and a solid offensive line.

MATCHUPS TO WATCH

Ravens OLB Terrell Suggs vs. Packers RT Justin McCray. Suggs, who has 120.5 career sacks despite suffering ACL and Achilles injuries, remains a force off the edge. McCray, subbing for the injured Bryan Bulaga, has been one of the Packers' biggest surprises of 2017. Their matchup Sunday will be extremely intriguing.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco vs. Packers secondary. Baltimore ranks dead last in the NFL in passing offense with just 165.7 yards per game. Green Bay is just 22nd in pass defense, allowing 208.2 yards per game. If Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is ever going to have some success, it's Sunday.
