Green Bay Packers continue to struggle

Miami Dolphins come out on top in Week 6

Much like the Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings and the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints, the Green Bay Packers had Super Bowl aspirations heading into this NFL regular season, but after the first six weeks of the season, Aaron Rodgers and company have started to realize that making it all the way to the big game in February will be no easy task as they will have to play the rest of the season without running back Ryan Grant and up and coming tight end Jermichael Finley.

Not only will the Packers have to play the rest of the season without two of their best offensive weapons, but they will also have to deal with the fact that perennial Pro Bowl quarterback Aaron Rodgers is not 100% right now due to a concussion he sustained against the Washington Redskins a few weeks back.

In Week 6, the Green Bay Packers were hoping to get things on track after losing to the Washington Redskins in overtime last week, but they weren’t able to get things going fast enough against the Miami Dolphins as they were forced into overtime for the second straight week and failed to capitalize on their opportunities to win the game.

Even though Aaron Rodgers was able to throw for 313 yards and account for two touchdowns (one rushing, one passing), it just wasn’t enough to get the best of the Miami Dolphins as kicker Dan Carpenter sealed the deal with a field goal and 9:01 left in overtime.

This second consecutive loss couldn’t have come at a worst time as the Green Bay Packers will be facing off against Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field next week and could have used the much needed momentum heading into what could potentially one of the biggest games of the year.

Fortunately though, the Packers are one of the most talented teams in the NFL today and without a doubt have the capability to bounce back and get the win over the Vikings in Week 7, but it will be a tough matchup to say the least that could end up being yet another game that goes into overtime.

In the meantime, the cheese heads will focus on getting healthy and making sure Aaron Rodgers is good to go for this NFC North showdown at Lambeau Field.

If the Green Bay Packers can’t get a win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 7, they could be in serious trouble as they will drop to third place in the NFC North division behind the first place Chicago Bears and the second place Minnesota Vikings.

With that being said, their season could be on the brink of disaster as they will be playing catch up for the rest of the season and hoping to limp into the playoffs for a second straight season through the NFC Wildcard.
