Thanks To Niners, Packers Don’t Have The Biggest Fourth Quarter Loss
We all remember the 2014 NFC title game like it was yesterday. Green Bay had a nine-point lead heading into the fourth quarter. It seemed like the Super Bowl matchup everyone thought was inevitable finally was happening, Tom Brady versus Aaron Rodgers. But Green Bay had the biggest choke of their franchise (At that point) and fell apart losing a stunning NFC title game. In 2014, Green Bay had the record for the biggest blown lead in an NFC title game until last night. The San Francisco 49ers now have that over Green Bay blowing a 10 point lead to the Los Angeles Rams.

This is a bright side of yesterday. I’m sure it’s annoying because Green Bay is likely the best team out of anyone that played yesterday or playing in two weeks. But that’s not how football works. Just because you’re the best doesn’t qualify you to play in the Super Bowl. Games need to be won. The Packers didn’t do that sadly. But thankfully, they will now talk about the Niners’ collapse in the championship game first before they talk about the Green Bay Packers.
