Packers D seeks improvement after mini-break


GREEN BAY (AP) -- The Packers say they're refreshed and energized after a mini-break during the Thanksgiving Day weekend.

They're looking to get over that humbling 40-10 loss to the Detroit Lions.

Perhaps about the only positive from that game for Green Bay is the few extra days of rest ahead of Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.

The Packers had a Week 4 bye, and have had to push through a spate of injuries over a nine-week stretch without a breather. They're 0-4-1 since quarterback Aaron Rodgers fractured his left collarbone a month ago.

Cornerback Tramon Williams says the break helped, and there's renewed energy in practice. Green Bay hopes the run defense can regain its early-season form after being shredded for 185 yards a game over the five-game slide.
