The Green Bay Packers may have folded in Week 17 but previous to the loss that cost the football team the bye in the wild card round and home field advantage at Lambeau Field up to the NFC Championship game, the team had been putting on an offensive show. Green Bay Packers tickets will take the fans toNew Orleansto watch as the legendary franchise plays in Super Bowl XLVII, its sixth appearance in the biggest game in American professional sports.
Though the running game is once again suspect, the passing game is one of the best in the NFL. Injuries have kept James Starks from playing to his full capacity and Alex Green has been forced to take on the role of primary running back. Altogether, the Packers have only scored 8 rushing touchdowns, and two of those Aaron Rodgers ran in.
Rodgers has been the key to the offense, throwing 39 touchdown passes to just 8 interceptions. This season has proven a trying one for fantasy football fans trying to pick the right Packers receiver. None surpassed 1,000 yards and Rodgers through touchdown passes to seven different players. The best bet has been James Jones, a player who only seems to catch the football when there is an opportunity to score. He ledGreen Baywith 14 touchdowns and had the second most receptions with 64. Randall Cobb has been the primary receiver, catching 80 passes for a team leading 954 yards. During the postseason, the opposing secondary will have to try and cover Cobb, Jones, Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, and Jermichael Finley at the very least. This is all but impossible when the Pack is playing even remotely well.
The opposite side of the football sits just outside the Top 10 in scoring defense and is an average turnover forcing unit. This unit’s strength is in the linebacker and safety positions. Linebacker Clay Matthews is not tackling as many people as fans would like, but he is being tasked with the pass rush and has 13 sacks in the role. Linebacker A.J. Hawk’s duty is to sit back and take care of the running back and cover the middle of the second level. Safeties Morgan Burnett and Charles Woodson have done an excellent job as the last line of defense. With the middle of the field secure and the passing game nearly impossible to stop the Green Bay Packers playoff tickets are a hot commodity with fans confident the green and gold will be playing in Super Bowl XLVII.
