I sure didn’t see that coming. Except for a minor blip in Kansas City a month ago, the Packers were an efficient and precise scoring machine all season. Although their defense certainly could be porous, it made enough plays to win when combined with an offense that scored 35 points per game.
But in the professional sports league where the regular season matters most, it didn’t matter here. When many asked about the Packers and a march to a second straight Super Bowl championship, I cautioned that there would be a team peaking at the right time. In other words, the Packers of last year.
