New, comments

The biggest games of the year took place on Sunday, with Philly winning the one that probably had the more prestigious trophy.

The biggest game of the season took place on Sunday, and it was a thriller.

Team Fluff beat Team Ruff 52-47.

Wait, no, the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots 41-33.

Whether you were watching the Super Bowl or the Puppy Bowl, you got a thriller that came down to the wire. Doug Pederson and MVP Nick Foles led the Eagles to the team’s first Lombardi Trophy, while the Lombarky Trophy went to Team Fluff and MVP Bear for a great performance.

Meanwhile, we got to see a legendary Packer get voted into the Hall of Fame, ending an effort that has been going on for decades. It was a good weekend overall for Packers fans, and the team will look to replicate the Eagles’ 2017 success (though hopefully without the need for a backup quarterback to take over for Aaron Rodgers).

The goal for the Packers' defense in 2018 is to communicate better, and the whole idea behind the Packers' rearranging of the coaching staff is to achieve that goal.
