If the Green Bay Packers keep playing like they did in Sunday night's win against the New York Giants , the storyline of the 2016 season eventually will turn to their dominant defense, and the tale of their inconsistent offense could become an afterthought even if Aaron Rodgers never returns to his MVP level.

(AP) - The Carolina Panthers are 1-3, their MVP quarterback has a concussion and their young secondary just allowed Matt Ryan to throw for 503 yards and four touchdowns.
