Packers offense on the move with quick tempo

Posted: Updated:
GREEN BAY (AP) -

The Green Bay Packers would like to push the pace.

Most teams say they're at their best when dictating tempo. But most teams don't have quarterback Aaron Rodgers operating the offense, or playmaking receivers such as Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, and running back Eddie Lacy.

Rodgers has 25 touchdown passes. His six-touchdown outing in the first half of Green Bay's 55-14 rout last week of Chicago earned him the NFC Offensive Player of the Week award.

This week, the Packers face a team that also likes to go up-tempo in the Philadelphia Eagles. Chillier-than-normal temperatures expected for Sunday's game likely won't alter the Packers' plans.

Coach Mike McCarthy said playing up-tempo is a good fit because it gets the ball in Rodgers' hands as much as possible.
