Thursday Night Football will feature two teams that have dug themselves into a hole. For the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks this is pretty much a must-win game. The loser won’t be mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but any realistic shot will be gone.
For the Packers, they’re looking up at the Bears (6-3) and Vikings (5-3-1) in the division. They currently sit as the seventh seed in the NFC. The Wild Card teams are currently Carolina (6-3) and those Stinkings.
Even right now, it seems the Packers are looking at the sixth seed as very possibly the best outcome.
If the Packers lose to Seattle, they drop to 4-5-1. The Seahawks would then leapfrog them at 5-5. There are several other 4-5 teams that could jump in front of the Packers too. Dallas, Philadelphia and Atlanta all sit at 4-5.
In terms of the division, the Packers could be sitting two game behind the Vikings with a loss. Of course, they play the Vikings next week, but the Packers would likely have to win out for a shot at the playoffs.
Hey, how about another run the table!?
Who cares about Seattle, but if they drop to 4-6, they would also very likely have to win out for a shot at the playoffs. The Rams have all but formally locked up the NFC West.
As far as the rivalry goes, the Packers have won three straight. However, all of those games were in Lambeau Field. Seattle has beaten the Packers in three straight at CenturyLink Field. We know what two of those games were. The NFC Championship debacle and The Fail Mary.
Somebody is going to be saying this after the game.
In previous years the Packers started out slow, then suddenly, for reasons no one can explain, Rodgers suddenly started playing like the best quarterback of all time and they got to the playoffs. This happened in 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016. I don’t see that happening this year. I think good but not great Rodgers is what we are going to get for the rest of the year and that’s not enough to get the Packers to the playoffs.
I would like to thank TT (The Frugal GM), MM (The Buffoon) and Mark Murphy for facilitating this present day cluster-fuck . . . Go fuck yourselves for wasting the GOAT with your ineptitude . . .
Go get em Morgan!!!
Whatchya smilin about Nick? Get a new contract?
10 minutes to kick-off. Will the Green Bay Packers show the Nation they discovered an identity?
Kyler Fucking Fackrell.
Shitty Fucking Officiating. Pete Dipshit must blow the refs in Seattle before games. Adams no call. Incomplete pass reversal. GB still leads as I write this but what the hell.
Sometimes you need to challenge a play, no matter how many time outs you pissed away due to bad clock management. Well, if Rodgers can bail McNuggets ass out here with 5 minutes to go, McGravy should buy him a vacation as a thank you gift.
Rodgers deserves just as much blame as McCarthy. Sorry. Truth is hard. Rodgers didnt make the plays when he needed to
He missed easy throws on the final possession. He fucked up. I am just being honest
Brady makes those plays most of the time. That is the difference between them.
If the piss poor game management in this one didn’t prove just how bad that this buffoon of a coach is, then nothing will . . . let them go 4th and 2! No challenge? What was up with Rodgers on that last throw? Was it tipped? Did they really believe that they could STOP them on defense? I didn’t!
