    The Packers came into this game with a big chip on their shoulders. They were given no credit all season in the NFL pundits polls even though they sported the leagues best record. Green Bay knew this would be a tough defensive battle. The first time both teams met, it came down to the wire. This time around, Peyton Manning was leading the Seahawks so the Packers didn't know what to expect.

    No snow but real cold temperatures with a steady 10 mph wind would be the gametime conditions. The Packers got the ball to start the game and were immediately in a hole as Rodgers was sacked on 2nd down setting up a third and long. In game tape the week leading up to the game, the Packers noticed Kam Chancellor liked to play run first and could be caught looking over the middle to crossing patterns. The Packers looked to take advantage as Rodgers connected a deep outside pass in one on one coverage to Randall Cobb for a 86 yard touchdown and an early lead. Peyton Manning wasn't the Peyton we all know. Cold weather and father time may have finally caught up with him as he threw a couple first half picks. Midway through the second, Rodgers noticed Kam sneaking up on running plays. He called a play action bomb to a streaking Greg Jennings as Kam peaked in the backfield for a 41 yard score and a 14-0 lead. Both defenses stiffened up and that is how the game ended.
