Rodgers Seals His Toughness In Ice Bowl II
On Sunday, the Green Bay Packers defeated the Dallas Cowboys 26-21 in what was called the Ice Bowl II.
Going into this game, everybody was talking, and rightfully so, about the calf injury of Aaron Rodgers. We all knew that Rodgers was playing in this game, but it was clear that his mobility was limited. Green Bay kept the game close, and Rodgers looked comfortable in the second half, even if he wasn’t mobile.
Rodgers stat line for the day was that he completed 24 passes for 316 yards and three touchdowns. The offense played well enough against a Dallas defense that wasn’t good on this day. The Cowboys had opportunities to win this game, but that was overshadowed after Dez Bryant had what was the play of the game overturned after he didn’t have sole procession of the ball.
But back to Rodgers, I have to give him the respect that he deserves after playing in pain. With that said, Rodgers still has his work cut out of him. Rodgers needs to rest/treat his calf, and the Packers need to prepare to take on a dangerous Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field. That should be one hell of a game between the top two teams in the NFC with a spot to go to Super Bowl 49, and you can assure that the Seahawks will do everything in their power to test Rodgers.
