Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers made victory over the over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at Lambeau Field: The Packers have not just been unbeatable at home; they've been unstoppable. For the first time in franchise history, they put up 50 points in consecutive games. 

When they jumped out to a 30-6 halftime lead over the Eagles, they became the first team in NFL history to score 28 or more points in the first half of four straight home games. They have scored at least 30 points in each of the past six home games, which set a franchise record. 

In last week's 55-14 win over the Bears, safety Micah Hyde made one of the game's momentum-changing plays on defense when he picked off Jay Cutler in the first quarter. Against the Eagles, he made another early-game impact when he returned a punt 75 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter to give the Packers a 17-0 lead. It was Hyde's first punt return for a touchdown this season and the second of his career. 

It's about time defensive coordinator Dom Capers started getting some credit for what the Packers have done on defense.
