Recap: The Green Bay Packers are the NFC North champs!2 minute read
It was a hard fought game, then again aren’t all divisional games hard fought? The Packers headed to Motown for this showdown with the divisional foe Detroit Lions. With the NFC North crown on the line here, saying it was a big game is an understatement. The stakes were high to say the least, not only does the winner get the crown, but also has a much easier road to Superbowl 51.
With the victory the Green Bay Packers sit atop NFC North once again where they belong. The Packers now head home to Green Bay Wisconsin to play the New York Giants and Eli Manning. I’m not worried about the Giants. Eli Manning is a turnover machine! He has the 6th most interceptions in the NFL on the year with 16. Our defense has the 3rd most interceptions in the league with 16. We’re going to do Eli like we did Russell Wilson, 5+ turnovers.
