Packers beat Baker Mayfield and Rams to keep fading playoff hopes alive

Packers beat Baker Mayfield and Rams to keep fading playoff hopes alive

This is when we are used to seeing a Green Bay Packers Get ready for the playoffs. The Monday night setting suits that.

Temperatures were in the teens at Lambeau Field. Aaron Rodgers He hit some passes but mostly the running game took over. The defense was very good most of the night.

It all looked familiar, but nothing like the past few seasons. This Packers team is not peaking in the playoffs because there probably won’t be any for them. Green Bay is not dead in the playoff race but they need a lot to happen in their favor over the past three weeks. At least they did their bit on Monday night, hitting an audible limp Los Angeles Rams The team he used whatever magic he had to come back against Las Vegas Raiders last week. The Packers won 24-12 to improve to 6-8. Rams 4-10.

The guys have had some great comebacks before with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback. There were signs of life Monday night. All the Packers can do is win and see what happens.

The Packers take over in the third quarter

Last time we saw Rams quarterback Baker Mayfield, he was driving a ridiculous win over the Raiders. The first half of Monday night was a reminder of what Mayfield is being asked to do – join a team late in the season, starting two weeks after being cut by Carolina Panthersall for a team decimated by injuries – almost impossible.

The Rams offense didn’t do much. There were two field goals in the first half. Mayfield didn’t look bad, but he only had 74 yards going into the break. The Rams defense played tough and kept them in the game. The score was 10-6 Packers, but it seemed inevitable that Green Bay would open the game.

It happened early in the second half. AJ Dillon scored his second goal of the night on a defensive penalty Jalen Ramsey Kept the Packers drive alive. Rodgers began to slow down on that drive. The Packers led 17-6, and while the Raiders proved in Week 14 that you can’t take anything for granted, Green Bay wasn’t about to make the coaching blunders Las Vegas made to allow the Rams back into the game.

Packers must win and hope

The Packers got a little sloppy in the fourth quarter. The Rams scored a touchdown. Jones lost a fumble. It doesn’t matter much. The Rams are not doing well enough this season to take advantage.

Even if the Packers win, they will need help. the The New York Times Match Script Generator He claims that if the Packers win, they have a 68% chance of making the playoffs. It’s not great for Green Bay.

The Packers have an outside chance of winning their last three games if they play like they did on Monday. The team everyone thought would be a Super Bowl contender looked like before the season even started. A lot of that had to do with the Rams being near the end of a horrible injury-riddled season. But at least the Packers dealt with them.

It was a disappointing season. NFC North is already settled; He went to the Vikings. The Packers could finish the season on a five-game winning streak and still not make the playoffs. This is what happens when you play really bad in the first half of the season.

However, they are still technically alive with three matches remaining. Few teams will change locations with them.
