Packers' depleted defense faces resurgent Manning


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers won't get the break they had last time facing a third-string quarterback when the Indianapolis Colts visit Sunday.

  Packers coach Mike McCarthy says anytime you have an opportunity to compete against a team with a quarterback the magnitude of Peyton Manning, you have to bring something extra to the game.

  On WTMJ radio today, McCarthy says that focus begins with meetings on Wednesday and carries over to practice throughout the week.

  The two-time MVP and the Colts offense found a resurgence in their passing game with a 31-3 win over Baltimore.

  The Ravens had the top-ranked pass defense in football before their meeting last Sunday.

  The Packers faced third-stringer Charlie Frye instead of Matt Hasselbeck in their 27-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday.
