Morning Buzz: Packers keep postseason hopes alive
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers after their overtime victory in Cleveland.
We’ll start with Pete Dougherty’s look at what is still an uphill climb to make the postseason for the Packers.
Somehow, the Green Bay Packers turned the most humiliating of defeats into an inspiring comeback win that saved their 2017 season for another week.
Now comes the hard part.
The Packers’ rally from a two-touchdown deficit in the fourth quarter to beat the Cleveland Browns in overtime was the ultimate survive-any-way-you-can victory. That it was against the NFL’s only winless team matters not a wit. A win is a win is a win, and the Packers’ only charge Sunday was staying in the hunt.
That, they accomplished.
Now they’re looking at the very real prospect of getting back Aaron Rodgers from a broken collarbone this week, and with that, a world of possibilities open. But at 7-6, they almost surely have to win their final three games, including the next two against NFC contenders: at Carolina (9-4) and at home against NFC North leader Minnesota (10-3).
