When Panthers Coach Ron Rivera said that he felt the team under the most pressure this week will be San Francisco he was dead wrong. Not only is his team the one that HAS to win this game, if he really believes that the Panthers are playing with house money he is setting his team up for failure.
The Green Bay Packers overcame some significant injuries to win the NFC North and make the playoffs, but they still lost in the first round. Here is the story of their season.
Home or away. Late summer or during one of the coldest nights of the year.
To now continue to rail against Cutler is howling at the moon, tilting at windmills, typing in metaphors.
Seattle has already faced, and beaten, both the Saints and 49ers this season but not the Packers. Does the unknown help or hurt a team in the Playoffs?
The Internet can be a wonderful place, but it can also be a rumor mill.
The Bears-Packers game had something for everyone going into the game.
The Green Bay Packers pulled off a huge win to make the playoffs, but now they have to face off with the San Francisco 49ers. They will have to work to prevent a repeat of what happened when these two met last season.
Two of the NFL’s most decorated franchises will meet this Sunday when the Packers and 49ers meet in a NFC Wild Card matchup. The winner will move on in the playoffs, while the loser will face a disappointing end to a season that started with much higher aspirations.
Time offers the opportunity for perspective, so I thought it would be a good idea to wait each week to give my thoughts on the Bears game.
Jay Cutler could cure cancer and would still not win people over because of his lack of warmth and fuzziness.
Aaron Rodgers missed about half the season. Now, he can make up for lost time.
Bears coach Marc Trestman said the team’s season-ending loss to the Packers was “very disappointing,” and called Green Bay’s first-half fumble return for a touchdown while on offense “a debacle,” as the entire defense stood around and watched their rivals make an easy score.
Aaron Rodgers fired a 48-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb in the final minute, and the Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears 33-28 to capture the NFC North championship.
Green Bay Packers WR Jarrett Boykin picked up a loose ball and ran it for a touchdown after Julius Peppers knocked the ball out of Aaron Rodgers’ hands.
Getting into the playoffs matters, when you consider the last three Super Bowl champions all played on wild card weekend.
Despite their dearth of recent success, all eyes will be on the Cowboys. For the karma and the drama, for better or worse, they are America’s team. Mostly for worse. Just watch on Sunday.
One win. Seven losses. Eight touchdowns. Seventeen interceptions.
The waiting game is over.
The NFC North crown is on the line this Sunday at Soldier Field, and the Bears should know which quarterback they’ll face soon – Aaron Rodgers or Matt Flynn.
