Packers 2011 Schedule
December 5, 2011 by staff
Packers 2011 Schedule, Mentioning 16-0 isn’t exactly taboo around the Green Bay Packers. It isn’t quite their favorite topic, either. After a thrilling 38-35 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday night secured on a last-second field goal by Mason Crosby, the reality is the Packers might have cleared their biggest hurdle to the second 16-0 regular season in NFL history.
Asking them about it after they clinched a playoff berth, they simply smiled and said the record is 12-0, not 15-0, and there are three more victims, uh, opponents ahead.
“It’s the first step,” said Aaron Rodgers, who showed his likely-MVP form by throwing four TD passes and guiding a 68-yard drive with 58 seconds remaining that set up the 31-yard kick by Crosby. “We don’t talk about 16-0. It’s a playoff spot, division, a first-round bye. If we’re fortunate enough to be unbeaten, then we’ll talk about 16-0.”
To get to 15 wins, they must beat Oakland at home, win at Kansas City, then take down the archrival Bears on Christmas night at Lambeau Field. The Raiders were routed at Miami on Sunday and are extremely inconsistent. The Chiefs and Bears are playing third-string quarterbacks, and when they faced off Sunday, neither appeared ready to test the Packers.
Taking care of those three would leave the Pack needing only a victory over the Lions at Lambeau on New Year’s Day to match the 2007 Patriots for most wins in a regular season. It’s no leap to project a Packers win in that one.
