MINNEAPOLIS — The Cheap Green Bay Packers Jerseys China aren’t just going back to the playoffs, they’re going back as NFC North champs. A week after they ensured themselves of ending their two-year playoff drought, they wrapped up their first division title since 2016.
And by doing so with their 23-10 win over the Cheap Minnesota Vikings Jerseys China on Monday night, they assured themselves that they wouldn’t have to come back to U.S. Bank Stadium in the playoffs. Before Monday, they had Cheap Jerseys From China never won in this building.
It wasn’t pretty until the fourth quarter, when Cheap Aaron Jones Jersey China scored the second of his two touchdowns to run his season total to an NFL-leading 19.
But then again, when it hasn’t been Jones or Cheap Davante Adams Jersey China, it hasn’t been pretty on offense for a good portion of the Packers’ 12-3 season.
It was only 15 days earlier when Cheap Aaron Rodgers Jersey China said: “I wouldn’t mind winning ugly all the way to the Super Bowl.”
For a while, this one looked like it would qualify as another step along that path.
The Packers turned it over three times in the first half. It was their second three-turnover game of the season. Both came on Monday Night Football, the previous being in Week 6 against the Lions.
That’s also when Rodgers last threw an interception before Monday. He had a streak of 277 straight passes without one until badly underthrowing Adams on a pass into the hands of Vikings safety Cheap Anthony Harris Jersey China in the second quarter. That ended the second-longest interception-free streak of Rodgers’ career. He once threw 402 straight without a pick, which remains the longest streak in NFL history.
The Packers had allowed just 29 points off turnovers entering the game, the second fewest in the league behind only the Vikings (26). The Vikings’ first 10 points all came off turnovers (Jones’ fumble and Rodgers’ pick).
Rodgers couldn’t get much going deep, especially early on. He completed just 1-of-8 passes on throws of more than 10 yards in the first half, tied for his second worst half since 2008 with a minimum of eight attempts, according to ESPN Stats & Information. And the one he completed was fumbled away by Adams.
It was Rodgers’ third game this season without a touchdown pass, although they’ve won all three. The Packers had been 4-10 entering this season when Rodgers failed to throw a touchdown. It was the first time Rodgers won a game in which he threw an interception and no touchdowns.
But thanks to Jones’ 23 carries for 154 yards with two touchdowns and Adams’ 13 catches for 116 yards, and thanks to Cheap Za’Darius Smith Jersey China, whose monster season included a monster game Monday night with 3.5 sacks as a part of a seven-tackle (five for a loss) game, the Packers survived without the best day from Rodgers
Vikings can’t touch Jones on way to end zoneAaron Jones runs untouched into the end zone as the Packers grab the lead over the Vikings on the road in the second half.
Still, the Packers will face questions about how much damage — if any — they can do in the postseason.
As division champs, they are guaranteed at least one postseason game at Lambeau Field, but if the season ended the way it stands now, the Packers would have the No. 2 seed in the NFC. With that comes a first-round bye and then a divisional round game at home. And they’re still in play for the top overall seed in the NFC. If they win the regular-season finale at Detroit and the Cheap San Francisco 49ers Jerseys China lose at Seattle on Sunday night, then the Packers would earn the No. 1 seed and homefield advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.
Not bad for a team that wins ugly.
