Still Waiting for the Table to be Run…

QB Ryan Tannehill, running off the field after a dominating performance in Lambeau.

Review: Titans 27, Packers 17~ The Packers are left with zero margin for error the remainder of the season. Rodgers now has a convenient excuse of a broken thumb for why he’s resembled his typical January self, all season. Green Bay never committed to the run, ‘nor had much success with it (56 yards on 29 attempts).

The Packers did win the turnover battle, but like all season, the offense did nothing with it. Once they fell down 27-17 (final score), the Packers’ last 4 drives went:

  1. 3 plays, 3 yards (3 and out)
  2. 3 plays, -2 yards (3 and out)
  3. 4 plays, 7 yards (3 and out)
  4. 10 plays, 37 yards (downs)

You score on each of those possessions, even field goals…

Tannehill ended up being too much, and our QB couldn’t come through, even thought the Titans have far less talent and many more injuries…weird, eh?

As this game is underway, Philly is arguably the best team in the NFL – while Green Bay must win out to have a chance at the postseason. The Eagles have an extreme advantage when the Packers’ offense is on the field. The turnover differential is incredible, look for that (as always) to be a key.

Other than that, let’s see if the highest paid QB in NFL history can resemble a starting caliber QB, let alone earn his paycheck by winning Super BowlSSSS

Packers 20
Eagles 34 (-6.5)

Season: 5-6
Overall: 86-48
