It’s been over a week since the Green Bay Packers suffered a heartbreaking 24-21 road loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC divisional round, and just when the wounds from that loss were starting to heal up, former NFL quarterback Kurt Benkert brought up Sunday night the idea that Jordan Love and company would have taken care of business against the Detroit Lions and gain ticket to the Super Bowl if they were the NFC title game opponent of Dan Campbell’s squad.
“All that I’m taking from this is that the Packers would have been in the Super Bowl,” Benkert posted on X.

That scenario isn’t hard to imagine. For one, the Packers went 1-1 in the regular season against the Lions. They suffered a 34-20 loss to Detroit in Week 4 at home and returned the favor to the Lions in Week 12 in a 29-22 victory. Then of course, the Packers nearly upset the 49ers in the divisional round, ultimately falling prey to the NFC West franchise to the tune of a 24-21 score.
What Could Have Been For the Green Bay Packers If They Made It Past The Divisional Round?
Despite the loss to the Niners, the Packers can say that they had an incredible campaign, all things considered. While many thought 2023 would be more of a transition stage for the Packers after the departure of Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay didn;t waste much time in becoming a Super Bowl contender, as the team finished the season with a 9-8 record, earned a ticket to the playoffs, and even defeated the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round.
