We begin in the NFL where the Green Bay Packers are in defiant mood ahead of their NFC divisional playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday.

With concerns around the fitness of star quarterback Aaron Rodgers the man himself has gone on record to say that he is playing this weekend no matter what - despite not practicing at all this week.

Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy echoed the sentiments of his QB when speaking to the media on Thursday.

"I play on Aaron playing Sunday...Today's schedule was for him to stay exclusively in the training room. There's still some things that he needs to work through. We'll see what tomorrow brings, if he'll be able to practice. It's day-to-day, but everything points in the direction of him playing."


Across to the NBA and while things continue to improve for the Eastern Conference topping Atlanta Hawks it couldn’t get much worse for the New York Knicks.

The Hawks extended their winning streak to six games last night - a 96-86 win over fellow high flyers the Memphis Grizzlies meaning it is 11 wins from their last 12 for Atlanta.

The Knicks meanwhile broke a franchise record by losing their 13th straight game leaving them with a sorry looking 5-33 record.


And finally in the NHL the New York Rangers pulled of a shock 4-1 win over the league leading Anaheim Ducks.

The Rangers' win was their 22nd of the season and their third straight.
