Green Bay Packers: 2013 NFC North Division Champs

What a weird, wild, insane season it has been for the Green Bay Packers.

Could anyone have predicted such a story to be written about this team?

They lost their starting Left Tackle in Bryan Bulaga  during preseason.

They lost their annointed starting running back in DuJuan Harris during preseason as well.

Clay Matthews suffered a broken thumb-twice-causing him to miss multiple games.

Starting LBs Nick Perry and Brad Jones missed multiple games due to injury.

Mike Neal went from being an experiment at OLB to starting OLB.

Second year CB Casey Hayward missed nearly the entire season with a hamstring injury.

The safety play was suspect for nearly the entire season.

Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone and missed half the season.

Three different quarterbacks (Seneca Wallace, Scott Tolzien, and Matt Flynn) subbed for Rodgers, and went a combined 2-5-1.

They needed a miracle to stay in the playoff hunt, and got one thanks to the Philadelphia Eagles beating the Bears, when they had a chance to clinch the division.

It would all be decided in a one game, winner take all show down along the Chicago lakefront. Winner moves onto the playoffs, loser goes home.

The season came down to the final minute of play-literally-with all of Packer Nation on the edge of their seats.

And at the end of the day, the Packers emerged as the 2013 NFC North Champions.

No one-I repeat NO ONE-could have predicted a season like this.

What a weird, wild, insane season it has been for the Green Bay Packers.

And the best part is…it’s not over yet.

Congrats to the Green Bay Packers, your 2013 NFC North Champions.
