It’s cold, it’s been snowing and the Eagles aren’t going to be able to postpone the game this time.
The Green Bay Packers have been hot at the right time, and that has stemmed from the play of their quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers has thrown for 846 yards in the last three weeks, and his defense has found a way to stunt all comers with the exception of the 31-27 loss to the Patriots three weeks ago.
After the Packers suffered what seemed to be insurmountable injuries all season, they found a way to work themselves healthy and into the playoffs at season's end.
While some would say Rodgers is not a playoff quarterback, I would beg to differ. Rodgers has only had one opportunity, and his numbers (423yds, 4 TDs, 1 INT) could not have been any better as his defense gave up 51 points to the Cardinals.
The Eagles have been on the decline over the last month of the season, and while Michael Vick started the season refusing to turn the ball over, he has done anything but protect the football in recent weeks.
The cold weather doesn’t play into Vick’s game well, and while he has become a better passer, it’s not going to be enough to outdo the Packers defense in the cold weather.
Things to Watch:
Michael Vick’s ability to run and throw in the cold weather
Green Bay’s ability to limit DeSean Jackson
Packers 34 – Eagles 24
