GREEN BAY, Wis. - With two games left, the Green Bay Packers are playing to win out.Green Bay (10-4) can lock up a sixth-straight post-season berth as early as Sunday, when it plays at Tampa Bay (2-12), the last-place team in the NFC South.We are close to the playoffs, and we do have to buckle down and focus on the task at hand, running back Eddie Lacy said.The Packers, who are tied for the NFC North lead with the Detroit Lions, have their eyes on getting at least a No. 2 seed in the conference that would give them a first-round bye in the playoffs.They are counting on Lacy to be ready to go Sunday in the warm Florida air after Sundays mistake-filled 21-13 loss at Buffalo. Lacy, who has been bothered this week by an irritated eye caused by a contact lens, is probable to play.I took my contact out, and I guess it just got super irritated, Lacy said.Lacy, who needs 60 rushing yards for his second straight 1,000-yard season, prefers to wear contacts in the game, rather than goggles.I dont want to say I refuse (wearing goggles) because I think it will be better than wearing contacts, but thats kind of old-fashioned, Lacy said.The Packers, who didnt practice Friday, also listed linebackers Clay Matthews (biceps), Mike Neal (abdomen) and Nick Perry (shoulder) and offensive guards T.J. Lang (ankle) and Josh Sitton (toe) as probable for the Buccaneers game.Right tackle Bryan Bulaga continues to go through the league-required testing protocol after suffering a concussion in Green Bays game against Buffalo. Bulaga is questionable to play against the Buccaneers.As we say in here all of the time, youre either a part of the protocol or youre not a part of the protocol, coach Mike McCarthy said. Hes still in it, and hes making progress.In the locker room Friday, Bulaga indicated hes close to completing the evaluation process for players who have head injuries. Bulaga said he had to pass a couple more steps in testing before he can be cleared by an independent neurologist to resume playing.I think were on a good track right now, Bulaga said. So well see what comes about tomorrow and go from there.An NFL spokesman said Buffalo defensive end Jerry Hughes wasnt fined for his open-field block on Bulaga that knocked the Green Bay lineman out of Sundays game on a Bills interception return in the fourth quarter.Young prospect JC Tretter filled in for Bulaga the rest of the game and has been getting the starter reps in practice this week in case a lineup change has to be made.

Now they have a short week to prepare for a Thursday night contest at St. Louis.Youve got to love NFL scheduling, Arizona wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald said.The Chiefs (7-6) dropped their third straight and trail three teams in the AFC wild card chase.We obviously need to do a better job, take care of our business, Kansas City coach Andy Reid said. Its my responsibility that takes place. We had e very opportunity to do that today, and we didnt get it accomplished.On Friday, Williams practiced with the scout team, pretending to be Jamaal Charles. Afterward, coach Bruce Arians told him he was being elevated to the regular roster.Williams responded by rushing for 100 yards, nine more than Charles got. The former Utah State back, a seventh-round draft pick by Indianapolis last year, was the main cog in a running game that had been so bad lately. After rushing for fewer than 100 yards in the last two games combined, the Cardinals got a season-high 141 on Sunday.Quickness, explosiveness, an unbelievable change of direction, Arians said of Williams. He can break a guy down in a hole and make him miss and hes got power for a smaller guy.Williams big game came the same day that Arians said running back Andre Ellingtons season is over. Ellington is to have surgery to repair a hernia. He never had been at full strength this season.Arians gave Williams a game ball. Williams said he would give it to his parents.Some things to know from the Cardinals win:CONTROVERSIAL CALLS: The Chiefs were on the wrong end of a couple of controversial calls in the second half.The refs called two plays that I think were just crazy, Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles said.First, a third-quarter touchdown was negated when tight end Anthony Fasano was called for offensive passs interference.dddddddddddd On the next play, an interception ended the threat and led to Arizonas lone touchdown.My back judge (Lee Dyer) reported to me that he had Fasano blocking, referee Craig Wrolstad told a pool reporter, blocking downfield to create separation which allowed him to be open for the pass.In the fourth quarter, Arians challenged a call that tight end Travis Kelce was down by contact after a 19-yard pass reception to the Arizona 22. After the review, the call was reversed, giving the Cardinals the fumble recovery at the 15.The tight end caught the ball, took a number of steps, got hit and as he was going to the ground, the ball came loose. The ball remained loose. ... He tried to maintain possession, but he did not.ARIZONAS Defence: After surrendering 500 yards in its worst performance of the season last weeks 29-18 loss to Atlanta, the Arizona defence came back to shut out the Chiefs in the second half after they had taken a 14-6 halftime lead.This is the story of our season, said linebacker Alex Okafor, whose interception stopped a Kansas City drive and led to the Cardinals lone touchdown. Playing hard in the first half, but cranking it up in the second half, especially at home.Arizona has blanked the opponent in the second half of its last three home games.CHARLES TURNS QUIET: Jamaal Charles broke loose for a 63-yard touchdown run, then caught an 18-yard touchdown pass from Alex Smith.In between, he went down with a left ankle sprain. Reid called it a mild sprain.It was scary at first, Charles said. I thought I tore it up.In the second half, Charles rushed for 17 yards in seven carries.HOME COOKING: Arizona improved to 7-0 at home, the most home victories for the franchise in the 16-game era.Its also the most since the Chicago Cardinals won 11 of 13 home games in 1925.The Cardinals are 13-2 at home since Arians became coach.TURNOVERS: Arizona won the turnover battle 2-0, with an interception and fumble recovery.The Cardinals have a plus-10 turnover ratio.
