Packers put substance ahead of style on defense

Posted:
GREEN BAY (AP) -

The Green Bay Packers could have filled an entire highlight reel with their interceptions last year.

Good thing, because the rest of their defense wasn't worth watching.

A year after finishing with the NFL's worst defense, the Packers have traded the excitement of those big turnovers for consistency. And the change could be the difference between another early exit from the playoffs and a deep run that could last all the way to the Super Bowl.

"I'd prefer our defense this year to last year's," defensive coordinator Dom Capers said.

The Packers (12-5) play at San Francisco (11-4-1) on Saturday night in an NFC divisional game.
