The Playoff Chips Fall in Packers Favor

The Green Bay Packers are in a much better position for a playoff spot this afternoon, then they were when they woke up this morning, all without even playing a game.

The Lions win over the Buccaneers 23-20; the Eagles’ crazy win over the Giants 38-31; and the New Orleans Saints loss to the Baltimore Ravens 24-30; all help the Packers as we get into the final stretch of the regular season.

The Packers play the Patriots tonight for the Sunday night game. Rookie QB Matt Flynn will be starting for the injured Aaron Rodgers.  Even though the Packers may be 13 point underdogs going into the game tonight, I can promise they have a lot more to play for after the events of the day.

At this point, the Packers control their own destiny.
