It was a nail-biting game (and season), but the Packers managed to pull out a win against the Lions, becoming division champs for the fourth year in a row. And that was even with Rodger’s calf injury making a surprise appearance at the end of the first half AND another fit of stompiness from Ndamukong Suh.
I have to admit, at halftime I thought we’d gotten ourselves into a worst case scenario, where Rodgers was injured and the Packers would lose, thus forfeiting the chance of the bye week Rodgers would need for recovery. Luckily, somehow, Rodgers was able to return and play well enough to secure a ten-point win and some recuperation time. If he doesn’t win MVP this year, I don’t know what more they could want from a player.
Final Score: 30-20 Packers
Final Standing: 12-4, Division Champs
