Pro Football: NFC North Update and Notes

December 29, 2014

The Green Bay Packers clinched their fourth straight NFC North crown yesterday, defeating the Detroit Lions (30-20).

The previous three years “G.B.” did not even make the NFC Championship game despite winning the NFC North, managing but one playoffs win, a wild card round win in 2012 at home vs the Minnesota Vikings.

Meanwhile, the Lions are relegated to playing in the wild card round.

That does not augur well for the Detroit Lions, a franchise without a playoffs win since 1991, in a home divisional game.

Additionally, the Lions are (0-7) all-time in wild card round games, six of them on the road.

It is the road again for the Lions in the wild card round as they visit the touchdown favorite Dallas Cowboys in the later Sunday game which rounds out the four game wild card round weekend.

There is a possible “silver lining” for the silver and blue clad Lions. In the film, “Silver Linings Playbook,” the protagonist’s team, the Philadelphia Eagles, wins vs the Cowboys.

In their aforementioned 1991 last playoffs win, the opponent was the Dallas Cowboys.
