Aaron Rodgers And Randall Cobb Put The Packers Into The Playoffs

It seems appropriate that the Packers' game-winning score was a connection from two of their players returning from injury. In a win-and-in Week 17 game against the Bears, Aaron Rodgers found a wide-open Randall Cobb on fourth down to take a 33-28 lead that ended up as the final score, putting Green Bay into the playoffs.

Rodgers was returning from a broken collarbone; Cobb had recovered from a broken leg. Together, they exploited Chicago's awful defense on the Packers' last opportunity of the season, and next week, Green Bay takes on the 49ers in the playoffs. When the two met last postseason, San Francisco won, 45-31.
