Here we are once again – game day – today’s matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Baltimore Ravens will kick off at noon and we will be here once again talking, chatting, complaining, shouting and the whole works.
Considering the Packers play the Super Bowl champion today adds a new dimension to this particular game. The Super Bowl champ always has a big target on their backs and beating the world champ clearly gives a team bragging rights – at least for one more week.
It’s a long season and every game is important. There comes times during the season, however, when specific games take on added meaning. This is one of them. The Packers are 2-2 and the Ravens are 3-2. Both teams have been inconsistent, but it seems that the Packers defense … the side of the ball that has been dormant for a long time – has seemed to come alive. But without Clay Matthews in the mix, how will the team respond?
This is simply one of those statement games that would lift the Packers back into the elite status of the NFL. The Packers were in the top 5 of power rankings as the season started. Since then, they have dropped a half dozen spots because of their inconsistency. Today is the time to regain the respectability.
In the meantime, here is an infographic provided by http://oak.ctx.ly/r/ekjg. It shows how the two teams matchup … it doesn’t tell the entire story, but gives us a thumbnail look at where the two teams stack up.
Take a look and then scroll down to the comment field and leave your comments throughout the game. We would love as many Packers fans (and Ravens fans!) to join us. We keep it clean and fun. Join us.
