Even though it came against a bad team with nothing to play for, the Packers were solid in all three phases and were dominant from the very start.

The Packers goal is to finish strong, playing their best ball at the end and they’re definitely headed in that direction.

At 11-4, the Packers have won 9 of their last 10 games and currently hold the #2 seed in the NFC playoff picture after San Francisco lost at Seattle on Sunday night 42-13.

The Packers still likely need to win their final game at Minnesota to hang on to that #2 seed.  They’ll be challenged too.  The Vikings need a win over the Packers on Sunday to clinch a spot in the post-season themselves.

The Packers defense came out strong right from the start.  They sacked Jake Locker 7-times and picked him off twice. 

The Packers 55-points is tied for the third-most in the team’s history.  They out-gained the Titans 460 yards to 180 yards.

Aaron Rodgers passed for 342 yards and three touchdowns with a passer rating of 125.1.

The Packers game has been flexed out of its normal noon start to 3:25 on Sunday afternoon at the Metrodome.
