The Packers last second touchdown from Aaron Rodgers to Andrew Quarless put the Packers up to 4-2 overall and with the Detroit Lions looking like they will get a win against the Vikings, the Packers don’t gain ground there.
But the best news of the day is that the Packers don’t LOSE ground…because they looked like they were going to take a loss to the Dolphins until that last second TD pass play.
While, in one sense, a win is a win, the Packers made Packernation wonder where they were at for all but about 3 minutes of this game. The defense turned the ball over twice and Aaron Rodgers and company could do virtually nothing with it against a Miami team that, though fresh off a bye…didn’t stack up on paper against the Pack.
But as this game closed out…I think Packers fans were just ecstatic…jumpin’…screamin’…and lovin’ a win no matter how it came. The Packers need to do some work and didn’t show a lot of ability to make adjustments in the second half, but they got a win.
Of greatest concern after this game is the injury status of Sam Shields (knee) and Tramon Williams (ankle) who both left the game in successive plays. We will keep you up to date on their status moving forward as it may be VERY important to a Packers team that was hampered by injuries last season.
But all in all the Packers escape Miami with a win regardless of how it happened. Drop a comment and let me know what you think!
