Packers: Top 5 most entertaining games from 2020 season
As football fans, we all want to see our team win. For Green Bay Packers fans who weren’t around for the 1970s and 80s, many of us almost expect our team to win, week in and week out. But there’s something to be said for those games that come around every so often and remind us, “This is why we love football”.
I often feel that we as fans get too caught up in reaching the end-goal, the Super Bowl, that we sometimes fail to appreciate the incredible journey along he way. We got to root our team on 18 total times last season, and regardless of the outcome, they were definitely 18 of my favorite days of the year. It’s why we watch football, after all.
When you factor in that you cheer for a team with the #1 offense in the league, you usually get some of the most entertaining games of the entire NFL season!
To clarify, I’m not the ranking the five best Packers performances of the season. I understand that in the eyes of some fans, the game with the best performance is the most entertaining game, that’s perfectly fine. Part of me agrees with that logic too as there’s nothing I want more than a Packers blowout victory every single Sunday.
But in this list I will be strictly ranking the closest, most exciting affairs that had a little bit of everything in them. The games that had us on the edge of our seats throughout the 2020 season.
(Don’t get too caught up in the order, while I did rank them 5-1, this is more so a chance to reflect on what was one of the best Packers seasons of the Aaron Rodgers era).
