THE STORY: Both the Green Bay Packers and Jacksonville Jaguars will be without a key player when they meet at Lambeau Field on Sunday. Green Bay, which returns home after winning two of three on the road, will be without safety Charles Woodson. The former NFL Defensive Player of the Year suffered a broken left clavicle in last week's 30-20 triumph at St. Louis and is expected to miss at least six weeks.

The Jaguars, who have lost three in a row, will not have Maurice Jones-Drew in the lineup as the running back sprained his left foot on the first play of last Sunday's 26-23 overtime loss at Oakland and is out indefinitely. Jacksonville also could be without quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who reportedly suffered a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder against the Raiders. If Gabbert is unable to face the Packers, Chad Henne will get the start.

TV: 1 p.m. ET, CBS. LINE: Packers -15.5, O/U 45.5.

ABOUT THE JAGUARS (1-5): RB Rashad Jennings will start in place of Jones-Drew. Jennings ran for 44 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries in last week's lost at Oakland. Jacksonville is struggling both offensively and defensively. It is averaging a league-worst 235.8 yards per game while allowing 147.3 yards on the ground per contest to rank 29th. CB Derek Cox has recorded an interception in each of his last two contests.

ABOUT THE PACKERS (4-3): In Woodson's absence, defensive coordinator Dom Capers said Morgan Burnett, Jerron McMillian and M.D. Jennings will have their playing time increased. QB Aaron Rodgers has thrown 16 touchdown passes and just two interceptions over his last four games. He has thrown for nine scores without being picked off in his last two contests. Rodgers has 151 TD passes in 76 career games. Only Dan Marino (62) has needed fewer games to reach the 150-TD mark. LB Clay Matthews leads the NFC with nine sacks while rookie CB Casey Hayward is tied for first in league with four interceptions.

EXTRA POINTS

1. The teams have split their four all-time meetings, with Jacksonville winning the last two - including the only matchup at Lambeau Field on Dec. 19, 2004.

2. The Packers have won 15 of their last 16 regular-season home games, while the Jaguars have dropped 11 of 13 on the road.

3. Green Bay leads the NFL with 24 sacks.

PREDICTION: Packers 41, Jaguars 9.
