The kids really are all right. The Green Bay Packers’ defense is relying on many fresh-faced rookies this season, both by design and because of injuries, and so far they’re delivering – and forming a close bond in the process. And it’s that bond – part competition, part shared experience, part friendship – that is paying off big for the Packers these days, according to the young guys involved. That bond will be tested as the Packers head into New Jersey to take on the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants and gunslinger Eli Manning tonight (5:20 p.m., NBC).
