When Nelson was knocked out of the wild-card win over the Giants with broken ribs, Rodgers shrugged it off and destroyed the Giants through the air the rest of the way. Afterward, he simply said that he believed the Packers would be fine from then on with who they had.
Geronimo (Allison) has been playing a lot for us, he said. Randall (Cobb) being back healthy we’re better with 18 on the field, but Geronimo is going to have to step up and play if Jordys out.
Rodgers completed passes to six receivers in the Cowboys game, pretty much every active skill-position player they dressed. He threw for 356 yards, and Cook and Richard Rodgers caught touchdown passes.
Instead of you like that being the lasting impression, it will be what happened against the Giants at home in Week 17.
New York had it’s wild-card spot locked up and was playing it very carefully with key players on both sides of the ball. Cousins had multiple chances to turn a frustrating 19-10 loss into a Redskins victory. His numbers 22 of 35, 287 yards, TD, two INTs just didn’t add up to that.
Cousins struggled with decision making and moving the ball with a short-to-intermediate passing game in a scoreless first half. His first interception, in the third quarter, came on a throw from right outside the red zone. His second interception, in the fourth quarter, on a potential game-tying drive, came right outside of field-goal range.
