On This Day In Packers History
We have to go all the way back to December 11th, 1939. The Packers dominated the Giants 27-0 en route to an NFL championship. The Packers have such a rich history that they proceed the Super Bowl era. The Pro Football Hall of Fame released some awesome footage that not many people get to see. It shows Packers legends Don Hutson, Clark Hinkle, and Arnie Herber playing in the game. This was really cool footage to be able to see from a game played 80 years ago.
Packers On A Bye
The 2022 Packers are on a bye week. They opted to skip an earlier bye week and take it later. It was a decision that many have questioned but ultimately the Packers are still in the playoff hunt. There are a lot of teams to watch this week and cheer against to help the Packers’ playoff chances improve. While the chances are slim, the fact that the Packers are even in the playoff hunt is impressive.
Even outside of the playoff chances, there is a lot to watch at the end of the season. Will Christian Watson be able to continue to put insane numbers? Will Jordan Love play and what will he look like? All of this and more are things to watch for in the last part of the season.
