When Panthers Coach Ron Rivera said that he felt the team under the most pressure this week will be San Francisco he was dead wrong. Not only is his team the one that HAS to win this game, if he really believes that the Panthers are playing with house money he is setting his team up for failure.
The Green Bay Packers overcame some significant injuries to win the NFC North and make the playoffs, but they still lost in the first round. Here is the story of their season.
Phil Dawson kicked a 33-yard field goal as time expired to lead the 49ers past the Packers 23-20 on Sunday night .
Seattle has already faced, and beaten, both the Saints and 49ers this season but not the Packers. Does the unknown help or hurt a team in the Playoffs?
The Green Bay Packers pulled off a huge win to make the playoffs, but now they have to face off with the San Francisco 49ers. They will have to work to prevent a repeat of what happened when these two met last season.
Two of the NFL’s most decorated franchises will meet this Sunday when the Packers and 49ers meet in a NFC Wild Card matchup. The winner will move on in the playoffs, while the loser will face a disappointing end to a season that started with much higher aspirations.
Here’s the complete wrap up of a wild and crazy week 17.
Despite their dearth of recent success, all eyes will be on the Cowboys. For the karma and the drama, for better or worse, they are America’s team. Mostly for worse. Just watch on Sunday.
For many football fans, Week 16 of the season is even bigger than the Super Bowl because it is their personal Super Bowl. It is the week with money on the line. Week 16 is the week fantasy football champions are crowned.
As improbable as it sounds, the best quarterback on the field in Sunday’s game between the Packers and Eagles likely won’t be Aaron Rodgers or Michael Vick.
Aaron Rodgers is not only one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, he is likely one of the top five players in the NFL. So when Rodgers went down with a fractured collarbone on Monday night, it obviously had an impact on this Sunday’s game against the Eagles.
The Eagles will not have to face Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on Sunday, as he recovers from a fractured collarbone in the Packers’ Monday Night Football loss to the Bears. The loss of Rodgers may give the Eagles an even bigger advantage than you’d think.
Don’t be suckered in to thinking the Eagles are getting lucky by playing a Packers team without one of the top quarterbacks in the league suiting up. Instead, realize the Eagles may be getting a break playing a team that is all of a sudden a bit of a mystery.
Every football team catches good and bad breaks during the season. The Eagles are catching a very good one this week.
Aaron Rodgers plays Sunday, Eagles fans get the opportunity to see one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. If Aaron Rodgers doesn’t play on Sunday, the Eagles likely have a better chance to win. If given the choice, Eagles fans selected the latter.
