Can you believe it?

After a miraculous comeback versus the Dallas Cowboys, last night the football gods again have seemingly decided to return favor to our beloved Green Bay Packers.

The Detroit Lions lost at home against the Baltimore Ravens, sending their season into a spiral and opening the door for the Packers. Green Bay now has only to win their last 2 games against the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Chicago Bears and they will win the NFC North!

Once again I say, CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!?

I, for one, thought this team was done after the loss at Detroit. I’ll go a step further and say I was about ready to write them off after the Giants game. The Packers just seemed lost. They have proven me wrong, and I am completely glad they have.

The greatest part is knowing if Aaron Rodgers can return for the next two games (or maybe even Randall Cobb, for that matter). These Packers have a good chance at making some noise in the playoffs.

I am not saying they make it through the wildcard game. Heck, I am not even sure they can make it through the next two games which would be decently tough. But I did not think they had a chance when I checked out of the Dallas game when it was “out of hand” at halftime to the tune of 26-3.

This Packers team has guts, they have gumption, they have resilience. With a legitimate running game in Eddie Lacy, they might just have a chance. They have something we have not had in awhile.

Hope.
