Happy Holidays Lounge. The Bacon is back for another crappy article. But luckily, the greatest trash talker will keep it short as I am about get snowed in from a huge blizzard coming my way in Wisconsin. It's like a hurricane, you know its coming, but you cannot do anything to stop its path.
On to today's article.
The Packers are in luck, as the final three teams trying to wedge their way in to the playoffs all happen to be in the NFC East. The Packers on the other hand have a huge lead on the Bears, as Cutler is having better luck controlling his diabetes but not his accuracy.
We aren't so hot either, we won four in a row, but it was ugly. When I mean ugly, I mean really ugly. It's the type of ugly you find at a bad adult store. However, they are still wins, and now the team has forced the three bastards into a Mexican Shootout.
If the Packers win the next game, they will win a wild card spot. Here is why:
The Packers are (8-4) (Conf 6-3) with one win against the Cowboys.
Dallas is the same (8-4) (6-3)
Philadelphia is (8-4) (7-2)
Giants are (7-5) (5-3)
Dallas' Remaining Games:
Philadelphia's Remaining Games:
New York's Remaining Games:
Each team has to face at least one opponent from their own division, and of the three, Dallas has the hardest. Dallas also lost to the Packers, so the Pack wins the tiebreaker. The Giants loss to Phildelphia drops them to 7-6, 5-4 with the Packers 9-4,7-3. Playing a "trap" game against the Redskins next week makes it even tougher.
Now I know the Packers almost need to win all their games to get a playoff spot guaranteed, however, the NFC East schedule is in our favor.
I guarantee one of them will not be happy at the end of this week if the Packers win. With the Bears up next, and how much our defense has improved, I see no reason not to get ready for ready for January football.
