With the news of Aaron Rodgers heading to injured reserve, things are looking gloomy for the green and gold. But these final two games will be huge for Hundley. The 24-year-old quarterback won his last two games as a starter and has tallied six touchdown passes and just one interception in his last three. If Hundley performs well against the tough Vikings and Lions defenses, Green Bay could have the opportunity to deal him for draft picks in the offseason with a team desperate for a man under center worth starting.
Weekends in January (↓ DOWN)
For the first time since January 2007, we don’t have our weekends planned for us by the Green Bay Packers to start the new year. The Packers lost to Carolina on Sunday to all but mash hopes of a storybook run to the playoffs, and then the Atlanta Falcons officially ruined everything by beating Tampa Bay on Monday Night Football (and barely, we might add). No playoff football in Lambeau Field? What do we do with our weekends?
Malcolm Brogdon (↑ UP)
Brogdon started nine games before the Bucks traded for Eric Bledsoe in early November. For a while after the swap, Brogdon struggled. His playing time was down from 35+ minutes to, on a few occasions, fewer than 20, but it seems he’s found his stroke and confidence off the bench. In his last two games, Brogdon has scored 36 points off 7-of-12 shooting from downtown while averaging 33 minutes as a reserve. If he can keep this going and find his savvy play on the court again that earned him Rookie of the Year honors last season, it will do wonders for the Bucks.
Badgers football (↑ UP)
Wisconsin signed all 19 of its commitments and a few walk-ons Wednesday morning on early national signing day, certainly leading to a stress-free day and holiday season for Paul Chryst.

Matthew Dellavedova (➡ EVEN)
It was good to see Delly back on the court Tuesday night against the Cavs, his former team. Dellavedova had missed the last 15 games with left knee tendinitis, but he was back as a starter at the BMO Harris Bradley Center to bolster the Bucks backcourt with Brodgon and Bledsoe. Dellavedova played well, drilling 2 of 3 attempts from beyond the arc for six points in just under 11 minutes on the floor. However, Delly made highlights around the country after LeBron James brutally swatted away his fastbreak layup in the third quarter. That ball may have landed in Madison.
