NFC Update

January 3, 2022

The (13-3) Green Bay Packers, playing on the exact 56 year anniversary of their 1965 “all the way,” NFL Championship Game (23-12) victory, vs the Cleveland Browns, in the great Jim Brown’s last game with Cleveland, matched their 1961 title game score, (they shutout the fine offensive team, New York Giants in that tilt at City Stadium, which was subsequently named Lambeau Field, where both the ’65 title tilt and last night’s games were played), winning (37-10) vs the “out of it,” (7-9) Minnesota Vikings, to clinch a second straight NFC “1” seed.

Last season, as was the case in 2019 when they lost AT the S.F. 49ers, the Pack (title winners 85, 60, 55 and 25 years ago and also in “same calendar” years 1965 and 2010) also lost the title tilt, that time at home, vs Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. (Brady has 7 titles, the Packers’ Aaron Rodgers has 1).

The likelihood of a “slots”/div round Pack/Bucs tilt decreased greatly yesterday, as first (12-4) and over in reg. TB/Brady “found” Cyril Grayson in the last minute to (-14) (27-24) the (4-12) Jets and then 6 point underdog, (11-5) Arizona (Cardinals) outrighted the Cowboys of Dallas, in a late afternoon Buck game.

L.A. (Rams) becomes the two seed, if they beat the “battling for the ‘offs,” 49ers (oh Curt Menefee, the Saints ‘offs chances were not and are not slim. However, falls to the “5” seed, if they lose and Arizona wins at home vs Seattle (Seahawks), in what could be Pete Carroll and/or Russell Wilson’s “Sea” tilt.

‘Zona is at least a “5,” while the Philly Eagles are also in the ‘offs and certainly why Dallas (they need not only a win but Rams and Bucs losses, so why not Brady and T.B. Saturday or another game?!) at Philly in a “flexed” Saturday night tilt/!

The Niners surely will be underdogs at the Rams while the Saints will be favored vs the Falcons. Since wins by the Rams and Saints would yield New Orleans ‘offs qualification.
