Green Bay Packers are in the giving mood with a loss to the Minnesota Vikings

Adrian Peterson vs. Packers at Metrodome

With a thrilling 37-34 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, the Green Bay Packers are in the gift-giving mood.

It was the Chicago Bears who were naughty and the Vikings who were nice this holiday season.

Not only did the Packers gift-wrap a spot in wild-card weekend, Adrian Peterson and his 199 yards (a mere nine yards short of the single-season record) was most likely enough to give him the 2012 MVP Award.

Eli Manning and the Giants make the Packers look like they have “dead-arm”

After not throwing a touchdown in three straight games, the New York Giants Eli Manning threw three of them in a 38-10 rout of the Green Bay Packers.

The nasty injury-bug finally caught up to the Packers (7-4) who looked lost on the offensive line and couldn’t stop any facet of the Giants’ (7-4) offensive attack.

Back and Forth: Packers win a game with five lead-changes

An offensive explosion which seems imminent whenever the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions meet didn’t happen. What did happen was a back-and-forth game dictated by turnovers.

The injury-riddled Packers beat the Cardinals for their fourth straight win

Injuries are as common to football as cheese is to Wisconsin, but the plague that has hit Green Bay is way beyond what any normal team goes through.

After beating the Arizona Cardinals by the score of 31-17, the Packers (6-3) are legitimately without 11 starting players. New injuries to WR Jordy Nelson, OL Bryan Bulaga and LB/DE Clay Matthews only adds salt to an open wound as the team enters their bye week. [Read more…]

Green Bay Packers running game in shambles in 24-15 win over Jaguars

Despite giving the Jacksonville Jaguars multiple opportunities to compete, the Green Bay Packers held on for a 24-15 win in a game where it could be argued the Jaguars looked like the better team.

Blaine Gabbert outplayed Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ (5-3) run-game was non-existent against a Jaguars (1-6) team who’s one of the league’s worst at defending the run.

A win is a win, but it leaves you wondering if the Jaguars’ moral victory is slightly better than the Packers’ real victory.

Packers survive close call in 28-27 win over the New Orleans Saints

Despite some more questionable calls and a suspect pass defense, the Green Bay packers persevered at home to outlast the New Orleans Saints by the score of 28-27.

Bad reffing aside, the Green Bay Packers’ defense had no answers for the San Francisco 49ers who went into Lambeau Field and pulled out a 30-22 win.

aaron-rodgers-bad
The Green Bay Packers saw their storybook season come to an embarrassing halt yesterday (Sunday, January 15) in a 37-20 NFC divisional playoffs loss against the New York Giants. Like the Philadelphia Phillies before them, who had the best record in baseball until they fell apart in the MLB division series, the defending Superbowl champs looked like they woke up still drunk from the night before, then decided to play a football game. The hometown crowd booed the Packers at halftime, which was followed by a chorus of “Let’s go Giants!” by the smattering of Giants fans combating frostbite in the Wisconsin cold at the game’s end.
