OH. MY. GOD.
The Packers had three chances to get into the playoffs.Their best hope
was Seattle in San Francisco, since Seattle is horrendous on the road.
Lucky for the Seahawks, San Francisco was horrendouser.
The next shot looked pretty good. A determined Dallas just needs to win
against an out-of-the-race New Orleans. Piece of cake, and... DAMN!
Ok, last prayer - Minnesota needs to lose in Arizona. Well, Arizona
sucks, but Minnesota has a hard time on the road, and many bad days on
real grass, so maybe... Nah. Might as well pack up the cheesehead for
Green Bay does their job, with touchdowns on back-to-back plays as part
of their 31-3 victory over Denver, but it's such a hollow victory. 2
minutes left & Minnesota is up by 11 points.
Oh look, Arizona scored a meaningless touchdown and blew the two-point
conversion. Well, at least they'll only lose by 5, now. Time for the
desperate on-side kick followed by some Vikings kneel-downs.
Ok, so Arizona recovered. There's still a lot of green between them and
victory. I will now forcibly squash this hope that's rising inside me
like a bad burrito.
Sack, sack, 4th & 24? Ugh. sigh.
Ah crap! Reviewed. He was probably out of bounds. Damn!
After reviewing the play:
oh. my. god.
In 4 seconds, the Packers went from sitting at home next week to
actually HOSTING the freakin' Wild Card game as the NFC North
If you'll excuse me, I think I'll go get happy-drunk now.
Heh. Stupid Vikings.
