It was nice to see the Inexperienced Bay Packers get a uncommon victory in Week 13, particularly in opposition to the Chicago Bears.
For now, it means the Packers stay in playoff competition. And whereas that’s true, desires of one other Tremendous Bowl win within the Aaron Rodgers period aren’t fairly over. Not but.
However a whole lot of work, and a few luck, can be required following the Packers’ Week 14 bye.
FanSided’s Matt Verderame has updated his power rankings for Week 14. Whereas the Packers do transfer up a number of spots, they’re nonetheless solely nineteenth, which sums up the mess they’ve put themselves on this season.
“Aaron Rodgers has seen this season flip right into a nightmare, however he nonetheless owns the Bears,” wrote Verderame.
Whereas this season is probably going misplaced, no less than we nonetheless have that. Rodgers’ unimaginable report over the Bears obtained even higher on Sunday, whereas Matt LaFleur improved to a formidable 8-0 over the Packers’ oldest rivals.
Rodgers must recapture his run-the-table kind to offer the Packers an opportunity within the closing 4 weeks of the season. Christian Watson’s breakout and the return of Romeo Doubs will undoubtedly assist.
Inexperienced Bay virtually definitely wants 4 wins from 4, beginning in opposition to the Los Angeles Rams at Lambeau Area, who will doubtless have Baker Mayfield at quarterback.
The Packers will play their closing highway recreation of the season on Christmas Day in opposition to the red-hot Miami Dolphins, one other recreation they need to win.
Obtain that, and possibly they may begin to imagine. Inexperienced Bay’s closing two video games of the common season are at house in opposition to the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions.
If they will win out, a 9-8 report could be sufficient for the seventh seed, however provided that the Seattle Seahawks, Washington Commanders, or New York Giants lose a number of video games.
We’ll see what occurs. At the least Aaron Rodgers nonetheless owns the Bears.
