Packers Stun Bears En Route to Super Bowl


Similar to the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears ugly match-up in week 17, someone had to win the NFC Championship. After three quarters of stifling defense and a riveting fourth quarter, the Packers edged out the Bears 21-14 to become the second-ever #6 seed to make the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl XLV will mark the Packers fifth overall appearance in the biggest game of them all. In that game, they will be vying for their fourth Lombardi Trophy.

It may be hard to fathom, but it wasn’t Aaron Rodgers or Clay Matthews who stole the headlines this Sunday. It was a couple of rookies in CB Sam Shields, P Tim Masthay and second-year DT B.J. Raji who came through in the clutch to send their team to Dallas.

Green Bay Packers’ Defense A Pleasant Surprise in New York


The Green Bay Packers defied all odds on Sunday by coming out victorious in a hard-fought battle at the New Meadowlands Stadium. Packers’ kicker Mason Crosby booted three field goals en route to a 9-0 victory. The New York Jets’ defense was good, but not as good as their counterparts in the Packers’ defense.

The shut-out marked the first time the Packers have held an opponent scoreless on the road since 1991. Tramon Williams, Charles Woodson and Clay Matthews all came up big when it counted. Could the recent surge of the defensive unit save the Packers’ season from the injury bug?
