Tuesday Cheese Curds: Familiar scenario facing the Packers to close 2023 regular season

The Packers have everything in their control as they try to make the playoffs, just like last year.

Last season, the Packers were hot in the second half. Their offense was clicking, led by a second-round pick at wide receiver and a quarterback playing his best football at the most important time. The hot streak set the Packers up for a win-and-get-in Week 18 match-up against a divisional opponent.

This season, the Packers have been hot in the second half. Their offense is clicking, led by a second-round pick at wide receiver and a quarterback playing his best football at the most important time. The hot streak has set the Packers up for a win-and-get-in Week 18 match-up against a divisional opponent.

Last season, things ended in disaster. The wheels fell off the Packers’ offense and the defense turned to tissue paper at the most inopportune time.

Will this year be any different? Let’s hope so. Losing to the Lions at home with the playoffs on the line is one thing. Pulling the same thing against the Bears? It’s a thought almost intolerable to imagine.
