The Packers clinch homefield with a game to play and we got answers to the questions we asked before the game:
- Can the Packers not completely sh!t the bed? Yup. It looked a little shaky early, but this game was never really in doubt – they took over in the 2nd and the route was on.
- Can 8 guys stop Dalvin Cook? Easily. He only had 13 yards on 9 attempts. The Vikings played pretty balanced early then went into pass mode when they got down
- Can they avoid injury? Mercifully, yes. I wanted Rodgers to sit down sooner, but they seem to have made it out unscathed. This is extra important because the Packers can afford to rest guys next week before their bye and get a couple weeks to heal up before the divisional round.
