The Green Bay Packers are NFC North Champions for the fourth season in a row. If Green Bay makes it to the Super Bowl, one thing will certainly make the “highlight” reel. The image of Aaron Rodgers heading back to the sidelines after going down just before the half this past Sunday. Packers playoff tickets for the the game at Lambeau are available now. Kickoff is set for January 11, at Green Bay.
Aaron was nursing an injured calf, before heading into the game against the Lions. He was listed as “probable” earlier in the week, and most fans knew he would give it a go. What surprised most fans was the fact that he further injured that same calf while scrambling to his right. Nothing spectacular, just a run to avoid the oncoming rush. He hobbled twice, and flipped the ball to Randall Cobb for a touchdown. The stadium went silent when he didn’t get up. Slowly, a chant rose from the crowd “MVP! MVP!” It was certainly a moment for the football ages. Now, the Packers will get to take next week off, since Green Bay defeated the Lions once again.
Shu Adds Insult To Rodgers’ Injury Late In The Game
Finally, fans across the country witnessed Ndamukong Suh “accidentally” step on Rodgers’ bad calf. The game was almost in the bag for Green Bay when Suh stepped backwards onto Rogers leg with one foot, then another, then pushed off. If you watch the reply from the other side of the field, you can see that T.J. Lang was actually pulling Suh forward, but he still found the need to take a second step back, after certainly knowing that he was stepping on a player. The second step wasn’t so bad, until one notices that Suh seems to push off and put his full weight on the second step. This is not the reaction of someone who finds themselves unintentionally stepping on a player. Also, after years of playing in high school, college, and the pros, a top notch defensive player knows how to stay off another player’s legs, hands, or feet. Either way, the Packers are on their way, and the rest is history.
It’s time to take a look at the notable bowl games prior to New Year’s Eve. This week, lets take a look at the “really big” NCAA Football bowl games outside of the playoffs. For this job, we decided to ask our favorite sports guru Tim Bryce to describe each game in a few short sentences.
Peach Bowl, Mississippi vs. TCU – Earlier this season, Mississippi was the second ranked team in the country and two weeks ago it appeared as if TCU was going to back door their way into the playoffs. But Mississippi stumbled to the f
inish line this season and the playoff selection committee chose Ohio State over TCU. TCU’s defense is insane and that will be the difference in this game. TCU will be able to find touchdowns while Mississippi doesn’t. TCU wins by a few scores.
Fiesta Bowl, Boise State vs Arizona – It used to be a huge deal when a mid-major like Boise State made the Fiesta Bowl. Now it is not so big of a deal with the disappearance of the BCS. If the BCS were still in play, neither team would be in this game. But this is the match up we have, and Boise State should win what will be a good game.
Orange Bowl, Mississippi State vs. Georgia Tech – Oh my, Mississippi State is going to wonder for the rest of all eternity what could have been in 2014. The Bulldogs were once the number one ranked team in America and were all but in the playoffs. But two losses to finish the season leaves them in the Orange Bowl against a very underrated Georgia Tech team. If the Bulldogs are not careful, this could be a loss, and I think it will.
Outback Bowl, Auburn vs. Wisconsin – For Outback Bowl tickets, check our inventory here. The old 19 vs. 18 match up features the horrible defense of Auburn versus the inept quarterback play of Bucky Badger. This game features two teams who had good seasons, but were nowhere near the playoffs from the start. This is going to be a high scoring game featuring about eight million rushing yards.
Cotton Bowl, Michigan vs. Baylor – This game is basically Baylor’s unstoppable offense vs. Michigan State’s brick wall of a defense. Whoever wins that war of attrition wins this game.
