Can Green Bay Make a Super Bowl?

With a dominant 37-10 win over the Vikings on Sunday night, Green Bay clinched the No. 1 seed, a first-round bye, and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

But don’t crown them just yet: The Packers were in this exact spot a year ago and fell to the Buccaneers in the NFC Championship — and they’ve failed to get over the hump in the last decade.

They haven’t been to the Super Bowl since winning it in 2011, falling in the NFC Championship four times and losing three home playoff games over that stretch.

Can the current title favorites (+400*) succeed where the past teams failed?

  • Aaron Rodgers has all but locked up his fourth MVP award (-400*).
  • Davante Adams broke his own franchise record Sunday with his 117th catch of the season; he’s second in the NFL in receptions and third in yards (1,498).
  • The Packers are tied for first in turnover differential (+16), and the defense ranks eighth in scoring (20.9 points).
  • Head coach Matt LaFleur has won an NFL-record 39 games in his first three regular seasons — but lost in the conference title game in his first two postseasons.

Rodgers and Adams combine for about 23.5% of the team’s 2021 cap hit ($43.9M) — and both will be free agents this coming offseason.

But winning helps everything, and if Green Bay is able to take home a title, maybe this won’t be the Last Dance after all.
