Forgive me for not paying more attention but it seems the Green Bay Packers have come out of nowhere to claim a spot in the NFC Playoffs. I remember looking at the Packers loss to the Bucs, watching aaron Rodgers get laid out on every pass play, and thinking the Packers were on the ropes. Due to a defensive wakeup call, the Green Bay Packers are in the playoff and looking very solid. They’ve got the type of momentum needed in a playoff run by claiming six wins in their last seven games.
Now the Green Bay Packers have things clinched. They’ll line up against either the Cardinals or Eagles in the first round of the playoffs, a spot nobody could have foreseen when they were playing .500 ball. What’s important now is playing well againts the Arizona Cardinals in the last week of the season. It could be a tuneup for the post-season party and the Packers just need a few tweaks to go deep into the run for the Super Bowl.Eric Drouant
