It’s a New Day After Packers Bye

38 7

JJ Watt brings down Jay Cutler

Things are looking an awful lot different for the Green Bay Packers coming out of their bye week.

The team had a week to rest and hopefully heal some of their injuries, but that’s not the biggest development for the Packers. In the NFL’s Sunday night game, the Houston Texans beat the Chicago Bears 13-6 to drop the Bears to 7-2.

That’s one game ahead of the Packers, who beat the Bears earlier this season. The most interesting thing in that game was quarterback Jay Cutler leaving with a concussion at halftime. When did he even get hurt? No one seems to know, but Cutler didn’t return and Jason Campbell didn’t move the Bears offense.

If Cutler misses an extended amount of time, which seems possible considering this is like his sixth concussion, the Bears could find themselves in second place in the NFC North pretty soon.

Meanwhile, in the consolation bracket, the Minnesota Vikings beat the Detroit Lions 34-24, which tells us one thing. The Lions suck pretty bad.

The Vikings, meanwhile, somehow have the same number of wins as the Packers at six.

In addition to the Bears, the Packers are now only looking up to the Falcons, who lost to the Saints on Sunday, and the 49ers, who are 6-2-1 after a tie with St. Louis.

Green Bay faces Detroit on Sunday.

    What do you mean: “The rest of the NFC’s best teams look like they suck balls all of a sudden”….?

    Far as I know, the cats, teddy bears and sister humpers have all sucked our balls for years….it’s almost tradition……..Mccarthy is .800 in division games…….seriously; if they suck any harder on the Packs nuts, they might need the Heimlich B )
    Oh, and for one I hope Cutler comes back from his concussion real fast….game’s just not the same without him throwing passes……..to the Packer defenders…..!

    Cutler is the green and gold’s secret weapon. Think of the damage that Bears D could do if they had a QB??? PLEASE COME BACK JAY

    I hope for Tyko’s sake he/she is a 13 years old. A grown adult should not be using the word “faggy.” The Bears are by no means a bad football team. The Packers are better, deeper, and have 10 times the QB, but they could easily beat us in Chicago, and are in 1st place. You generally aren’t sitting in 1st after week 10 if you suck.

      Aaron Rodgers is not 10 times better than Cutler…he’s infinitely better; it’s literally immeasurable.

    It is a tough call on who looked worse- the Bears or the Texans. Let the Packers be 90% healthy and in a controlled environment, and they should beat either team by 10.

    Giants are doing their normal mid-season swoon, probably looking ahead to their bye. The 49ers and Falcons both looked like they played their best football in the first two months.

    Fortunately for the Packers, the Lions might be the only NFL team as banged up as the Packers.

    Barring an injury to A-Rodge, the Packers make the playoffs if they beat the Lions. That’s my call. With 3 very winnable home games remaining, a win over the Lions nearly guarantees the Packers 10 wins, and the way it is going in the NFC, 10 wins should get you in.
