To many football fans, the current domination by the Green Bay Packers probably seems like it came from nowhere. It's understandable if you aren't a follower of the team, considering they were 10-6 last year before going on their Super Bowl run and stringing together 19 consecutive victories.

However, I assure you that the current success being enjoyed by the Packers and their fans (and owners) did not arise out of thin air.

It took patience and huge momentum swings to get to this point. It took a lot of yelling at my television and a lot of heartbreak to finally arrive at this point.

This is my list of the top five circumstances that led to the Green Bay Packers' current domination. This will be fun for Packers fans to reflect on, and it will be insightful to those of you who are rooting for struggling franchises.

The Packers took the long, hard road to get to the top, but when you put it in perspective, it's clear that the journey is the reward.
