Packers Looking to Win with Shift in Style

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Packers coach Mike McCarthy has long talked about the importance of a team establishing its identity and playing to it.

The past two seasons, that's meant a prolific Green Bay passing game, led by NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers, and a running game that was essentially an afterthought.

Is that changing?

In the second half of Monday's controversial 14-12 loss to the Seahawks, the Packers changed into a run-oriented team with a tough defense that came one call short of a victory.

McCarthy said Friday that the team's ability to adjust at halftime was what really helped Green Bay's offense turn things around.
