Packers gain confidence coming off two straight wins

Posted:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Coming off back-to-back victories, the Green Bay Packers are a more confident team heading into Sunday's rematch with Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings.

Even if the degree of difficulty wasn't particularly high against Cleveland or Detroit.

Coach Mike McCarthy says the Packers played with confidence in Sunday's 31-3 victory at Cleveland, which came one week after their 26-0 dismissal of Detroit. Now comes the rematch with Favre and the Vikings, who beat the Packers by a touchdown earlier this month -- only this game will be at Lambeau Field.

Green Bay will be looking to add a wide receiver to its roster after Brett Swain sustained a season-ending knee injury Sunday. Jordy Nelson also is injured, leaving the Packers with only three healthy wideouts.
