PLAYOFF TIME! With last week’s NFC North-clinching win against Detroit, the Packers were playoff bound, and they faced the New York Football Giants in the Wild Card round. After a pretty dead-looking first half, Packer fans starting thinking we’d be one and done. However, the Packers rallied and beat the Giants, 38-13. So let’s take a look back, shall we?

The first half of the game was just straight-up disappointing. Five out of seven offensive drives ended in punts for the Packers. The offense looked disjointed and confused. The defense actually held together pretty well, however. The Giants’ only two scores in the first half were field goals, though, so there’s that, at least.

Yes, the above tweet is true. At one point the Packers had only LOST yardage. I was beginning to think we’d go one and done, until a speedy touchdown drive from Davante Adams gave me some hope. I had even MORE hope when Aaron Freaking Rodgers did what he does best as time ran out on the first half.

Aaron Rodgers. With NO REGARD FOR HUMAN LIFE.

That was the spark that the Packers needed to get going. In the second half, the offense got it together. In total, Aaron Rodgers threw for 362 yards and four TDs. Three of those TDs were to Randall Cobb, undoubtedly this game’s star player.

The defense actually did a great job holding back the likes of Odell Beckham Jr, Victor Cruz, and Tavarres King. Clay Matthews also had an impressive fumble recovery.

The Packers continued their unprecedented “table run” with their Wild Card victory. Next week, the Packers take on the formidable Dallas Cowboys in the divisonal round.

Oh, yeah, and this was the game that Odell Beckham punched a hole in the wall at Lambeau. Gonna go ahead and dump a bunch of tweets about this here.
