Although the game yesterday against the Minnesota Vikings did not go according to plan and the Packers fell to the Vikings by three points with a score of 37-34, it is not the end of the world. I like to keep things positive, so even though they lost their final game in the regular season, they still secured a spot in the playoffs taking the NFC North and a No.3 seed, and that loss also prevented the Chicago Bears from making the playoffs at all, so I like to look at it that way.
Green Bay finished the regular season 11-5 and will head into Wild Card Weekend with a match up against the Minnesota Vikings once more, at Lambeau Field.
Taking a look at the game yesterday, the Packers just could not hold Adrian Peterson. He ran for 199 yards surpassing 2,000 on the season. Stopping AP will be the key factor in the game next Sunday. If the Pack wants to come away with the win, holding AP is a must.
Offensively for the Packers, Greg Jennings accounted for 2 TD’s, James Jones 1, and Jordy Nelson 1. It was great to see Jordy back in action helping out Aaron Rodgers, who put on quite a show himself.
The game next Saturday is scheduled for 8:00 on NBC.
