We take a under-the-hood look at the play design on Alshon Jeffery’s touchdown against the Packers.
Sunday was what the Green Bay-Chicago rivalry has looked like for far too long.
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.
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.
The Bears 21-14 loss in the NFC title game couldn’t have been more strange if it came out of Hollywood. Nearly coming back to tie the game with your 3rd string QB after being down 14? Impossible – but it almost happened.
