On a crisp 33 degrees morning in Green Bay, there is still a sprinkle of hope in the air. Following a 20-17 Loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12, Packers coach Mike McCarthy was fired. At 4-7-1 the Packers season had been a wash, standing at only a 3% chance to make the playoffs following Week 12. It would be nearly impossible for Green Bay to still find themselves playing in January. However, following the Packers 34-20 victory over Atlanta, everything that needed to go right for Green Bay went right. Losses by Carolina, Washington, Philadelphia, and Minnesota in Week 13 still keeps alive the Packers chances of sneaking into the Playoffs. First things first for Green Bay, they must win out to have a chance to reach the Postseason for the first time in 3 years. The Second thing is they need Carolina, Philadelphia, and Washington to lose 1 of their remaining 3 games. All of which is likely to happen. Third and the biggest thing to wish for if you’re a fan of Green Bay is for Minnesota to lose 2 of their remaining 3 games in the season. The remaining Viking schedule consists of Miami, Detroit, and Chicago. So should we be surprised by the fact that Aaron Rodgers is still somehow gotten the Packers into a position to have a chance? We have nothing but the improbable from Rodgers in his tenure with Green Bay. We have almost come to expect nothing different. So let’s sit back, relax and enjoy everything that is the NFL and the insanity that comes with December football. If I am a betting man, Green Bay will find themselves coming back to Chicago on Wildcard Weekend. For what can only be another epic tail in the Green Bay and Chicago Rivalry.
