“I think you just keep putting your faith in the defense and in guys stepping up,” Rodgers said. “We’ve dealt with injuries in the past, and it’s got to be the next-guy-up mentality.”
In the past, injuries to the defense has never really hurt this team seriously. I still don't think they'll win this week, but Matthews' injury has nothing to do with it. If anything, their defense'll probably get a little bit better in his absence.
