Aaron Rodgers threw for 229 yards and the game's only touchdown as the Green Bay Packers clinched a playoff berth Sunday, beating their rival Chicago Bears 10-3.
Rodgers finished the season with over 3,900 yards and 28 touchdowns despite missing essentially a game and a half with a concussion. The Packers will face the Philadelphia Eagles next week in the Wild Card round of the NFC playoffs.
With the playoffs kicking off, the Packers are perhaps the most dangerous sixth-seeded team in the past five years. Their opposite number in the AFC, the New York Jets, are also impressive and both teams could pose serious threats to their early-round opponents, even on the road.
With the bevy of excellent games that we will surely see, there will also be some clunkers. The Saints figure to rout the 7-9 Seahawks, even in Seattle, while the Ravens and Chiefs play ugly at times.
