Packers Gives Fans An Early Present Beating Minnesota
Merry Christmas to all you tappers out there. You get a couple blogs from me this merry morning. Green Bay Packers added one more game to the wagon with another dominating performance at home thrashing Minnesota Vikings, 38-25. The game wasn’t as close as the final score would make it appear as Green Bay received one of the best Aaron Rodgers in quite some time along with a red-hot Jordy Nelson. Packers looked very healthy and dangerous at the same damn time.
When shows submit to The Emmy’s for ‘Best Picture’, they send in the best episode. If we had to do that for MVP race, Rodgers should have shown this particular game. He dominated with 347 yards, four touchdowns, no interceptions and a rushing touchdown. He looked like a man possessed out there. Rodgers found Nelson on several occasions including a bunch in the first half thanks to the Xavier ‘Rogue’ Rhodes. The game did feature a back and forth aspect though in the first half.
As Minnesota began to drive down the field, Clay Matthews made a bonecrushing hit on Sam Bradford knocking the ball loose and Mike Daniels recovered. Packers would add a touchdown extending their lead to 15. Matthews looked like his old self today playing fast and strong off the edge all game long. The game is a hell of lot different if Minnesota gets points there instead of a turnover.
Packers move on to Detroit in what will be a do-or-die game for the division. That’s the fourth straight year Green Bay put themselves in this position for the NFC North crown. Packers can still make the playoffs if they lose with a Washington loss. Same goes for Lions. It should be the Sunday Night game.
