Green Bay Packers News

Breaking Green Bay Packers news, Aaron Rodgers has been cleared to play but does that mean he should?

The Green Bay Packers spent the offseason improving their team and were considered a favorite to win the NFC. However, things changed when the team lost quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a shoulder injury that forced him to miss most of the season.

The Packers struggled without their All-Pro quarterback, but have managed to win three games in his absence, keeping their playoff hopes alive. The Packers’ odds of winning the Super Bowl is currently +1800, thanks to the fact that the team expects Rodgers to return to the lineup soon.

With Rodgers eligible to be activated off the injured reserve this week, and the Packers already saying he looks ready to go, Green Bay has three weeks to clinch a playoff spot.

With games against the Carolina Panthers, Minnesota Vikings, and Detroit Lions left on the schedule, making the playoffs isn’t guaranteed for the Packers. However, with Rodgers under center, the task is much easier.

The Carolina Panthers are also in the thick of the playoff race, and would like to pull ahead of the New Orleans Saints, who currently lead the NFC South and won the season matchup against the Panthers, making this a very big game for them as well.

The fact that the Panthers also have one of the best defenses in the league also makes things more difficult for Green Bay.

With the Minnesota Vikings rolling into town the next week, the Packers will go up against another one of the best defenses in the NFL, who will be trying to keep their hated rivals out of the playoffs. With the Vikings competing with the Philadelphia Eagles for the best record in the NFC, this will also be another hard game for Rodgers and the Packers.

The road game against the Detroit Lions in their season finale looks like the easiest of the three games on their schedule, but the Lions are tied with the Packers and also have playoff plans.

With a couple of more tough games ahead of them, it’s hard to see the Packers making the 2018 playoffs this year.
