Jordy Nelson is making navigating the sideline for catches look easy for the Packers.

Sometimes the receiver is on his tiptoes. Sometimes he has to twist around like a pretzel with a defensive back draped over him.

Either way, he usually comes down with the ball.

Now it's the Ravens' turn to deal with Nelson's tightrope act and the rest of Green Bay's talented receiving group when the Packers visit M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday.

Randall Cobb and James Jones form the rest of the Packers' top trio for quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The threesome has combined for more than 1,000 yards receiving and seven touchdowns in four games.

The Packers, however, do want to improve in the red zone after some struggles the past three games.
