Packers will take improved defense into Sunday contest with Minnesota
The Green Bay Packers will take an improved defense into their Sunday contest against Minnesota at Lambeau Field.
But defensive coordinator Dom Capers says he may still be conservative with his blitzes, to keep running back Adrian Peterson in check.
Peterson was held to 53 yards in Green Bay's loss to the Vikings on Oct. 5, at the Metrodome.
But quarterback Brett Favre sat in the pocket all night and he burned the Packer defense for 271 yards and three touchdowns.
