NFC North Sunday Recap

You wouldn’t like Aaron Rodgers when he is angry.

We shouldn’t have made him angry

Why did you all make him angry? Critics and Bears fans alike had been lining up to take their shots at Rodgers and company. Now look, he is destroying everything in sight.

First it was the Texans caught in his fire storm and now the poor Rams were in his path of destruction. The reigning MVP has heard enough about his struggling offense and has officially entered beast mode.

A week after throwing six touchdowns, Rodgers went 30-37 for 342 yards and three scores as the Packers rolled the Rams 30-20. The game wasn’t even that close in the second half, but a garbage time touchdown pulled St Louis within ten.

Rodgers and the Packers offense were hearing how NFL defenses were starting to figure them out and without a running game teams could contain the passing game.

The last two weeks? Not so much.

The Packers won impressively for the second straight week after the Colts stunned them three weeks ago coming back from a 21-3 deficit. Green Bay now sits at 4-3 and the Bears need to take care of business on Monday night to keep their two game advantage. This team is starting to find their stride and it is vital the Bears keep racking up wins during a favorable section of their schedule.

In the other NFC North tilt, the Vikings held off the Cardinals to go to 5-2.

Adrian Peterson looked the best he has all season and the defense did enough to pick up the struggling Christian Ponder. The second year QB threw for a whopping 58 yards to go along with two picks. Harrison Smith (From Notre Dame!) returned a John Skelton interception for a touchdown to ice the game.

Peterson ran for 153 yards an a TD as he continues his return from knee surgery. The Vikings are starting to show some weaknesses, cough QB cough, but remain in the thick of things in the NFC North.

The Lions come in to Chicago tomorrow after a big comeback win last week, but they still look like the team that season was looking like it was about to spiral out of control. They are putting jerseys on people off the street and telling them to go start in the secondary. The Bears need to take advantage of a good matchup in prime time.

The Bears have a game, albeit emotional they are supposed to win. After they do, they can move on to week eight still in first.

    Packers Rams not close in second half? I think a 1 possesion game with 9 minutes to go is not a blow out.

      27-13 with 9 minutes to play. Did you ever feel like the Rams were actually in the game? I sure didn’t.
