Back in the mid-November, the Green Bay Packers were sitting at 4-6, almost out of the Playoffs, but still hanging on. Six weeks later, they still haven’t lost a match after that embarrassing performance against the Washington Redskins. Six games, six wins for Aaron Rodgers and company. He believed that this team could run the table. Today, we can say that he was right while his doubters are standing corrected.
Now, after Rodgers’ big performance in Detriot, the Green Bay will enter the NFL Playoffs as the 4th seed and will face the New York Giants at Lambeau Field in the Wild Card Weekend next Sunday.
The question now is just how dangerous are these Green Bay Packers? Well, they are going to be a major factor in the NFC and here is why.
The offense is back. Aaron Rodgers has a lot of targets that are available to him, and everybody has been contributing in the past six duels. Jordy Nelson is his go-to guy, but Addams, Cobb, Cook and others are also big pieces of this Packers’ successful puzzle.
Running game is now alive in Green Bay as Montgomery has given this team a much-needed boost out of the backfield. It never hurts to have another playmaker on the field.
On top of all of that, the defense has stepped up big time. They will be facing the Giants, a team that has struggled on the offensive side of the ball. Is that New York defense really good enough to shut down Rodgers at home? It’s going to be hard to do that.
Packers booked their spot in the postseason, and they will be a major threat for the Cowboys and other favorites in the NFC. To some, Green Bay Packers might even be one of the favorites to make the Super Bowl.
