Packers Look To Change Recent Playoff Trend

The Green Bay Packers have made the playoffs in each of the last three seasons since winning the Super Bowl. However, they have failed to get past the divisional round and have just one win in that time frame. The Packers want to change that fortunate this weekend. The last time the Packers and Dallas Cowboys played a playoff game at Lambeau Field was the famed Ice Bowl.

Blocked Kicks Are Reason For Concern For The Packers In the Playoffs

The Green Bay Packers do not have many holes in their game as they enter the playoffs as the No. 2 seed in the NFC. However, one is their blocking in the kicking game. They allowed more combined blocked field goals, extra point attempts and punts than they had in the previous five seasons combined.

Bye Week Will Help Rodgers Get Healthy For Packers Playoff Run

The Green Bay Packers do not have to play this Sunday. That is a good thing as quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be able to get some extra rest before the Packers begin their run toward the Super Bowl. They will host one of three teams in the Divisional Round. Their opponent will be determined by the outcome of the Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys game.
