Summary: Since winning Super Bowl XLV, something just keeps getting in the way of the Green Bay Packers.
In 2011, the Giants brought their Magical Mystery Tour into Lambeau Field and knocked off the 15-1 Pack in the divisional round. Over the past two seasons, Green Bay met its waterloo against the San Francisco 49ers including a wild card round loss in bone-chilling temperatures at Lambeau Field last January.
The other “something” is injuries which threatens to rain on Green Bay’s potential parade again.
Defensive tackle BJ Raji is set to miss the entire season after injuring his right biceps during Friday’s preseason meeting against Oakland.
Aaron Rodgers rode in on his white horse last season to put the Pack in the playoffs. However, it will take a lot more than Rodgers for the Packers to get another Super Sunday appointment.
PREDICTED FINISH: 11-5
