#1 – Packers vs. Saints (Week 3)

Truthfully, you could give any of the top four this #1 spot and I wouldn’t argue with it. This game isn’t by far and away the most entertaining game of the season, it just slightly edges above the rest in my opinion.

That being said, go back and watch this game. It was phenomenal. Both teams went blow for blow with each other for 60 minutes. A 45-yard dime to Allen Lazard from Aaron Rodgers rolling to his left was the highlight of the first half.

The Saints swiftly answered with an Emmanuel Sanders TD, as Sean Payton managed to creatively get it done all game long despite Drew Brees’ noticeably limited arm strength.

The third quarter saw three touchdowns put on the board, two of which were notably excellent. Firstly a contested catch made by Packers blocking TE Marcedes Lewis, followed by a 52-yard screen pass which Alvin Kamara took to the house. The Packers’ putrid tackling on this play was something we may want to forget, but still this was a play worthy of making it into every 2020 NFL highlight reel.

As the teams entered the fourth quarter all squared, we knew someone had to slip up for this game to tilt one way or the other. After Aaron Jones was stopped short on a fourth-and-1 and New Orleans took over on downs, we thought that may be the fatal blow that would result in the Packers’ first loss of the season.

That was until just two plays later, when the Saints pushed their luck a little too hard and Za’Darius Smith stripped and stole the football from former Packer Taysom Hill on a QB keeper.

The Packers went on to seal the deal with 10 more points, taking home their third victory of the season in as many games. They had passed their first major hurdle of the year.

Final Score: Packers 37 – 30 Saints

While in retrospect of last season overall you may say, “well they didn’t get the job done in the end so who even cares?”, I’m here to tell you that we must appreciate games like those five I just mentioned.

When it’s all said and done, it’s not about the ending, it’s about the journey… and what an incredible journey the 2020 season was.
