For the season, Rodgers has the otherworldly numbers of 40 touchdown passes and only seven interceptions. I'm excited about it.
It will certainly be a memorable atmosphere in downtown Detroit, but this is actually a scenario Lions fans were hoping to avoid. Seven out of nine ESPN experts believe the Packers are going to win this game.
EAGLES 27, COWBOYS 13 Tony Romo threw his first touchdown pass in almost 14 months and the playoff-bound Cowboys played it safe. visiting The Cowboys (13-3) locked up the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs when the Eagles (7-9) beat the Giants on December 22. He has two TDs in his past three home games vs.
Both teams will launch offensive assaults, as both are prone to producing high point totals with Aaron Rodgers and company on Green Bay's side, and Matthew Stafford and his co-horts on the other.
Perry, in the midst of a career year, was far from the only Packers player who missed an opportunity to make a key play early in November. NY stunned the No. 2-seeded Packers 23-20 in overtime in the NFC Championship during the 2007 season and steamrollered a Green Bay squad that went a league-best 15-1 in the 2011 regular season by a score of 37-20 in the divisional round. "I don't know the time that the TVs go off by heart".
"That's what you have to do sometimes as a leader", Rodgers says.
"That's the confidence he has in our team and our offense and himself", Green Bay receiver Jordy Nelson said. We understand what we need to do to get to this point. Later, several Denver players said coach Gary Kubiak will be stepping down for health reasons.
Detroit responded with a touchdown of their own, and even got break on their final drive of the second half. "My injuries have definitely subsided, the rehab has continued but I'm healing up at the right time".
Rodgers declined to compare this Packers team to the 2010 title team. However, following the injuries to Randall in the third quarter and then Rollins and Dorleant, Burnett was moved to a nickel cornerback role while Micah Hyde was asked to move out to the boundary from his usual slot position.
"He came in and said 'We're going to play".
Awaiting the winners of those games will be the top seeds: No. 1 Patriots and No. 2 Chiefs in the AFC, No. 1 Cowboys and No. 2 Falcons in the NFC. They'll host either Miami, Kansas City or Oakland in a wild-card playoff next weekend.
Still, McAdoo's answer upon facing the Packers and mentor Mike McCarthy Sunday night in Green Bay is illuminating, not for its blandness - "I try to leave feelings out of it". Jacksonville (3-13) matched the second-worst record in franchise history after blocking a punt with 1:54 to go and breaking a 17-17 tie with 1:33 left. The public persona remained unflappable, covering the private one he doesn't want us to see. That means taking care of the football, finding some semblance of a running game and capitalizing with touchdowns once they get into the red zone. Detroit's has been particularly anemic, ranking 30th in the league.
But the No. 1 seed is still up for grabs - Patriots (13-2) get it with a win, Raiders get it with a win and a Pats loss. With the Rex Ryan revenge factor gone because he was sacked by Buffalo on Tuesday, not much to recommend in this one.
With nothing to play for in Week 17 against the New York Jets, the Bills will also start a different quarterback on Sunday. Ryan Fitzpatrick will start against the Bills, backed up presumably by not-ready rookie Christian Hackenburg.
Detroit quarterback Matt Stafford is a native Texan who would love to get the win in front of his friends and family. When I was in class, people were asking me to sign stuff and they were taking selfies with me on the way to class.
Their season-ending performance suggested the Broncos were too good a team to be sitting at home for the playoffs. Only Norm Van Brocklin (173) coached more games without winning a division in National Football League history.
It probably isn't a good thing if the last line of defense is making the tackle, but Dallas has to love this hit and effort. It left Roberts lying right on his back, and fans in Dallas partying with the Cowboys comfortable ahead at the time, 42-21.
While the Pistons have plenty of motivation to play well tonight, the Warriors find themselves in a bit of a trap game. Friday night, Golden State has a chance to get a revenge win in over Detroit. "We just couldn't score".
New Year's Eve plays a big role in the classic Sunset Boulevard , despite the fact that it's not really a New Year's Eve movie. Main St., Rockford, will have its Countdown to Fun Celebration from 12:30-4:30 p.m. on Saturday.
And now that we're here, we have to capitalize on that chance and play up to that momentum that we've had over the last few weeks. If they were playing anyone but the Packers, perhaps there would be a little more momentum on Detroit's side.
It might not be as surprising as the Cubs breaking a 108-year drought, but the Cubs were the best team in baseball all season. OK, so maybe the Dallas Cowboys didn't exactly ride to the rescue, though Jerry Jones might take credit for it anyway.
The Auburn Tigers and the Oklahoma Sooners will both be gunning for a victory on Monday when they meet at Mercedes-Benz Superdome. White has said he's 100 percent recovered from his shoulder injury, and his return should let the Tigers be somewhat balanced.

Despite the Tigers yardage being down from a season ago, I do not think the entire blame should be placed on the offensive line. He ranks 42nd in the nation in passer effficiency rating (140.79) and his 7.0 yards per attempt is tied for 72nd in the nation.
