Two teams were crushed in the NFC Divisional Championship Games on the 15th and 16th of January. In fact, those two teams probably are going to let their heads hang low for quite a while. The Green Bay Packers annihilated the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday, while the Bears rolled over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
Atlanta just never seemed like they could get their act together on Saturday. Aaron Rodgers, QB for the Packers, was spot on all night. The Falcons just couldn’t keep up with Rodgers quick thinking, laser eye and rocket arm. He was unstoppable. He threw 366 yards and had 3 touchdowns. Not too shabby, eh? The Atlanta Falcons turned the ball over four times, couldn’t protect their quarterback Matt Ryan, committed seven penalties, got slaughters in time of possession and gave away a season high in points. Green Bay took down Atlanta 48-21.
The Bears also are making quite the impressive showing against the Seahawks. While the Seattle Seahawks had a very impressive victory the week previous when they trampled the Super Bowl defending New Orleans Saints, but the Bears just didn’t care. They were going to win the game, and that’s what they‘re doing . The snowy and cold conditions at their home turf, also worked to the Bears favor. The Bears took home three touchdowns in the first half alone with the help of Jay Cutlers fine throwing and skill. Not to be outshone, Greg Olson is the first Bears tight end to get 100 yards in a playoff game ever, even under the jurisdiction on Mike Ditka and his championship Bears back in ’85. Nice work, Mr. Lovie Smith. The Chicago Bears are in the process of taking down the Seattle Seahawks 28 to nothing mid third quarter. It’s pretty much inevitable how this game will end.
Soo….boiled down, what does this all mean???? The Green Bay Packers will be playing the Chicago Bears on Sunday the 23rd for the NFC Championship title at Soldier Field in Chicago, IL. This is like a Midwesterners best dream matchup ever. The Bears and the Packers have a long-standing feud and rivalry. They have competed against each other 180 times. The Bears currently hold winning record against the Packers with a record of 92–82–6 in head-to-head matches.
