It was apparent from the very beginning of the football game.  The Packers were in New England for one reason, and one reason only: to win.

Say all you want about how severely mismatched the Packers were/are to the Patriots, but Sunday night's game was clear evidence of resilience from none other than the Aaron Rodgers-less Packers.

Better yet, you may as well refer to them as the Matt Flynn-led Packers.

We learned a lot about the Packers Sunday night...from a defensive perspective: Tramon Williams, B.J. Raji, and A.J. Hawk held Tom Brady enough to keep things close; and from an offensive perspective: Matt Flynn had great success in his first career start.

Even though the Pack came out on the losing end of a 31-27 suspense-filled battle for the ages, Green Bay's playoff hopes remain in tact at 8-6 looking ahead to the biggest game of the season against the Giants at Lambeau Field.

Still, Sunday night's fall to the Patriots will now serve as a lesson moving forward into the final two weeks of the regular season.

With a collection of positive achievements coming out of Sunday night, here are the 10 most important things we learned from Sunday night.
