In what could be labeled a surprise to those still relying on their predetermined expectations of this Green Bay Packers team — but not to those who’ve managed to adjust their thinking to how the team has actually been playing for the majority of this season — the Green Bay Packers lost another game, this one being to their division rival Minnesota Vikings to officially lose their NFC North crown for the first time since the 2010 season.
With the loss, Green Bay managed to end the year at 10-6, which was still good enough to give them the #5 seed in the NFC playoffs.
Before I get to that, it is imperative for us to continue going through why this happened; that’s exactly what I’ll do now.
While I’m sure you’re tired of reading about why they lost yet another game in what has been for most of us a pretty bleak 10-win season, this will hopefully clearly outline the reasons behind this particular loss concisely so that you can better understand the reasons behind it; though it likely won’t make you feel any better about where the team is, it should help adjust your expectations accordingly.
