The Green Bay Packers are your 2021 NFC North Division champions! After a hard fought matchup with the Ravens, the Packers welcome Cleveland for a Christmas Day showdown. The adrenaline of the holidays will make this game an awesome experience for anyone attending. As great as this sounds, football fans can only hope that this game can be played as scheduled. COVID-19 has been hitting the NFL hard with games having to be rescheduled. However, let’s all be of good cheer and see what could happen come Saturday!
Aaron Rodgers Breaks Brett Favre’s Touchdown Record On The First Drive
On Sunday, Aaron Rodgers tied Brett Favre’s record of 442 touchdown passes as a Green Bay Packer. What is most impressive about this is that Rodgers accomplished this with almost 200 less interceptions than Favre. This record should not serve as distraction, but I am almost certain that Rodgers will want it done sooner rather than later. Who is going to catch the touchdown pass? I feel like that should not matter, but I got a feeling a lot of fans will want Davante Adams to be the one. Breaking this record at home is going to be a Christmas gift that all Packer fans are going to be able to enjoy.
AJ Dillon Scores Two Rushing Touchdowns
What does AJ Dillon have in common with former running backs Eddie Lacy and Ryan Grant? All of them were at their best in cold weather games. What we saw from Dillon against the Titans last season was surely a sign of things to come. The temperature on Saturday is looking to be at or below the freezing mark. This type of environment screams success for AJ Dillon. No one wants to tackle a 250lb man who is running downhill at you. I am expecting a big day from Dillon, fairly similar to last year’s game against Tennessee. Where would this leave Aaron Jones? If Dillon can perform like this, I can see Jones doing most of his damage in the passing game on screens and wheel routes.
Packers Complete The Sweep Of The AFC North
The AFC North is one of the most storied divisions in all of professional football. It is filled with blueblood, ground and pound football teams who have great history in the NFL. The records of each team do not speak for themselves, but a season sweep would mean a lot to the Packers. Green Bay has clinched the NFC North, but a win puts them further ahead in the driver’s seat for playoff homefield advantage. Each game going forward for Green Bay is an absolute must-win. Cleveland has some skilled players on both sides of the ball, most notably Nick Chubb and Myles Garrett. This is not going to be an easy win by means. However, Green Bay will have enough to get the job done against the Cleveland Browns.
