OP/ED: Anything Can Happen in the Playoffs

  1 year ago     280 Views     3 Comments  

The saying "Anything can happen in the playoffs" may be the Packers biggest advantage this time around. Now that every game is potentially the last, there would be no better time for a few things to bounce the Packers' way instead of in the opposite direction. Now, I know none of us want this Packers team to have to rely on things to just randomly bounce their way but this year, it seems like that may be necessary.
