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.
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.
The 186 games played between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears qualifies it as the oldest rivalry in the NFL. But the recent history suggests this series has devolved into a “rino,” a rivalry in name only.
The injury hits just keep on coming for the Green Bay Packers.
This is more like it for Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. The reigning MVP set a career high and tied a franchise record with six touchdown passes and the Packers played their best game of their so far inconsistent season, beating previously undefeated Houston 42-24 on Sunday night.
Please avoid falling into the trap of calling the Packers overrated just because they’re 0-1.
The Atlanta Falcons had an early lead keeping the Green Bay Packers scoreless after the first quarter. The Packers turned it around scoring four touchdowns in the second quarter and held the Falcons back.
