Wrong word

A writer just chose the wrong word:

Whose to say the Packers won't repeat history once again?

That ought to be who is rather than whose.

Here's another sentence:

The Packers haven't had a kick returned for a touchdown in 10 seasons (Allen Rossum, 2000).

Actually, the Packers haven't returned a kick for a touchdown in 10 seasons.

That was correct when this was written; the Packers' Randall Cobb returned a kick 108 yards on Thursday night.
