What We Learned Against the Lions

  2 years ago     121 Views     3 Comments  

For the third time in five years, the Packers were on the upper end of a big-time Week 17 game – this time versus the Lions. The offense rose to the occasion, generating 21 points and 377 yards against the league’s number two defense. In the victory over Detroit, we learned that Eddie Lacy can overcome the league’s best D-line and that Richard Rodgers could be a viable TE1 next season. But perhaps most obvious after the Packers’ twelfth win of the season is that Aaron Rodgers is the NFL’s MVP. When Rodgers aggravated his calf injury in the second…

The Packers 30-20 win over the Lions yesterday kept the home field winning streak alive as well as the Packers NFC North title reign. With this win the Packers locked up #2 seed and a first round bye that was much needed to help Rodgers injured calf get time to heal.

Rants Not too much to rant about with a win but…

With a first-round bye and a home game at stake, Aaron Rodgers had perhaps his gutsiest performance as a Packer in Sunday's game against Detroit. After pulling up on his strained calf as he threw the first of two touchdown passes to Randall Cobb and heading to the locker room, Aaron went 17 for 22 with 2 touchdowns and posted a 139.6 passer rating. Along the way, he also called his own number on a sneak, expecting that to be the last thing that the Lions would expect...he was right. The Packers gritted out a win against a Lions team that gave…

OK Packernation, we have to wait to see what the situation is on Aaron Rodgers. But in the meantime the Packers still have a job to do. Here are three thoughts during halftime: 1. Get better Aaron! Here is your chance to say "Get well soon!" to Aaron Rodgers as we wait for more information on his injury. [poll id="52"] 2. Go get 'em Matt!
