    smothering defense. The 24-17 defeat dropped the Packers to a 5-8-1 record,
    effectively ending their season by mathematically eliminating them from the
    playoff conversation. Aaron Rodgers and company continued their season-long
    trend of out-of-synch offense, missing on the little details that define the
    fine line between winning and losing in the ultra competitive NFL. With two

    with an injury that we assume would be a week-to-week situation during a playoff
    run. So what’s the benefit of playing our aging star quarterback at this point?
    Stubborn pride? Reps with young wide receivers like Marquez Valdes-Scantling and
    Equanimeous St. Brown? For every reason to play Aaron Rodgers, we can find two
