GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Matt LaFleur won the NFC North in each of his first two seasons as Green Bay Packers coach, and he’s well on his way to making it 3-for-3.

The next step for LaFleur is to lead the Packers to their first title since the 2010 season.

The uncertainty surrounding quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ future only adds to the sense of urgency.

Coming off back-to-back 13-3 seasons and appearances in the NFC championship game, the Packers are 9-3 at their long-awaited bye.
