GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) â€” Going into Monday night's game against the Minnesota Vikings, the feeling is becoming familiar for the Green Bay Packers: Another week, another win, another uneasy feeling about the state of the defense.
The reigning Super Bowl champions are the NFL's only undefeated team at 8-0 and have won a franchise-record 14 straight games going back to last season, including playoffs. It has been so long since the Packers actually lost a game that defensive players now seem to be stewing about substandard performances in victories the same way they might after a loss.
FARGO, N.D. (AP) â€” Four North Dakota high school football champions are being crowned at the Fargodome on Friday.
Class AAA is an all-Bismarck battle, with Bismarck High taking on Bismarck Century. In Class AA, two-time defending champion Fargo Shanley tries for a three-peat against undefeated Grafton.
In Class A, Linton-Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock squares off against Stanley-Powers Lake, and in 9-man North Star goes up against Napoleon-Gackle-Streeter.
