Rodgers still confident in Packers defense despite recent loss of Matthews

In an interview yesterday with ESPN Milwaukee 540, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers made it clear that he still has confidence in the team's defense despite the recent injury to LB Clay Matthews.  

“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.
