Packers Get A Win In Minnesota

The Packers had to go to Minnesota and get a win to keep pace with the Detroit Lions. And lo and behold, the Lions lost to the Patriots in big fashion. This sets up a Clash of the Titans so to speak as the Patriots travel to Lambeau next week and the Packers require this game to make not just a statement, but also to put the pressure on the Lions to run the table and give themselves a chance in the last game of the season. Green Bay is now, officially, the NFC North first place team. (more…)

Mike McCarthy had little to say after yesterday's loss to the Lions. More to come later this afternoon but I think he summed the game against the Lions up nicely in two words. Two words that tell me that this Packers team is not on the verge of collapse, as some in Packernation seem to believe. In the minutes following the game as I stormed around the house angrily "cleaning up", I thought about those two words myself. It is disappointing when a loaded Packers team doesn't capitalize, when two words can sum up a game. (more…)
