Green Bay Packers tickets for the NFL playoffs are putting the NFC North division champions on a tough road to Super Bowl XLVII. They begin with a wild card round rematch of Week 17 with the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field, then are forced to travel west to play the San Francisco 49ers if they do indeed survive, and finally more than likely would end up playing the Atlanta Falcons at the Georgia Dome in the NFC Championship game. All this would take the franchise to its sixth Super Bowl.
The Packers were a bit underwhelming during the regular season.Green Bay’s passing game is still a top tier unit and the running game is acceptably in the middle tier. The defense is both decent against the pass and the run. Aaron Rodgers once again finished the year with the best quarterback rating, completing 67.2 percent of his passes for 4,295 yards with 39 touchdowns and just 8 interceptions. Really, he has somehow gone unnoticed and unappreciated by everyone but those living inGreen Bayand those with him on their fantasy team.
Rodgers spread the football around, completing more than 30 passes to five receivers and scoring touchdowns with seven different receivers. This would be Randall Cobb’s breakout season. Cobb had a forgettable rookie season but would manage to become the most consistent receiver of the bunch. He caught 80 of 104 passes for 954 yards and 8 touchdowns. He doubles as a sometimes return man.
The defense is led by Clay Matthews, the Pro Bowl linebacker featured in commercials. He had 13 sacks this season and relied on safety Morgan Burnett and linebacker A.J. Hawk to clean up on running plays. Cornerback Casey Hayward has supplanted Charles Woodson as the best cover man on the team. Woodson has actually moved to safety after it became clear his skills no longer made him an appropriate cornerback on a championship caliber football team. If the team can avoid the kind of breakdown in Week 17, then Packers playoff tickets will get the fans to New Orleans.
