Prior to the Week 17 games, I scanned my Twitter timeline and read multiple tweets about how the matchups were "boring". No thrillers were expected, just a bunch of dull games to be played out so the real excitement—the playoffs— can began the following weekend. There were two teams that didn't quite get this memo; the Green Bay Packers traveled to the rival Minnesota Vikings' Metrodome, where they lost 37-34 in dramatic fashion.
The Packers were out-dueled by not only Adrian Peterson, who eclipsed 2,000-yards, but by Christian Ponder as well. You read that right: Christian Ponder.
