5 reasons why Packers can win Super Bowl this season
Packers are getting hot at the right time
The Super Bowl isn’t won in the regular season. Securing the top seed and home-field advantage is great, but it comes with no guarantees. The Packers know that all too well.
Sometimes, it isn’t the team that dominates the regular season that wins the Lombardi Trophy, but the team that gets hot late in the year.
Again, the Packers know this all too well.
In 2010, Green Bay needed to win its final two games to make the playoffs. It secured the sixth seed by defeating the New York Giants 45-17 and the Chicago Bears 10-3. The Packers would then go on the road and win three straight playoff games before beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl.
That Packers team got hot late in the season and made a run.
Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers did the same thing two years ago.
After going 2-3 in November, the Bucs got hot in December, going a perfect 4-0 and entering the playoffs as the fifth seed.
Despite losing to the New Orleans Saints 34-23 and 38-3 in the regular season, they would eliminate them on the road in the divisional round before beating the No. 1-seed Packers at Lambeau Field.
Tampa Bay then defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 in the Super Bowl.
The Packers are getting hot at the right time. Maybe they can make another championship run.
