Cardiac Pack Wins Again

The Green Bay Packers continue to flirt with disaster and red flags are popping up everywhere on defense. That and the Packers’ offense sudden inability to get a first down once they go up by double digits is becoming quite troublesome. The Packers once again built a comfortable lead only to let their inferior opponent take them down to the final seconds. It is a very disturbing trend.

While the Packers defeated the Cleveland Browns 24-22 it hardly had the feel of a team peaking in advance of the playoffs. The Packers were on the receiving end of several questionable calls, including the game-sealing interception. It looked like Rasul Douglass might have gotten a hand on the jersey of Donovan Peoples-Jones prior to making the pick. But the refs didn’t call it so it so it must not have been a penalty.

He hit Allen Lazard with a 11-yarder to give the Packers a 7-6 lead in the first quarter. Even that may have been a generous call as Lazard barely got the ball to the pylon. It was called a TD on the field there wasn’t enough evidence to overturn it. Rodgers would throw two more touchdown passes to Davante Adams in the first half before the Packers’ offense went into a shell in the second half.

It was a festive atmosphere at Lambeau as was to be expected. The Packers tried their best to be Scrooge but the spirit of Christmas is a strong one. Thankfully it’s a Packers’ fan.
