Aaron Rodgers is making Green Bay fans forget about that traitor Brett Favre with each and every win on the football field. More now than ever since the Packers are heading to the Super Bowl.

Rodgers ran for a touchdown and made a touchdown-saving tackle in leading Green Bay to face the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Packers played an all-around game of offense, defense, shutting down Bears punt returner Devin Hester.

In the 182nd meeting in the series, Green Bay won 21-14 over the Chicago Bears.

The Packers are 13-6 and had to win all of its playoff games away from Lambeau Field, at Philadelphia, at Atlanta and now Chicago to get to the Big Game in Dallas.

Rodgers’ counterpart at QB, Jay Cutler, left the game due a knee injury in the third period, but he not performing well anyway.

His backup Todd Collins was inefficient as well.

The best QB for the Bears was third-stringer Caleb Hanie and he added life to the team.

Hanie rallied the Bears for a touchdown to cut the lead to 14-7 after Chester Taylor’s 1-yard run early in the fourth quarter.

But Hanie also gave the Packers a chance to add the winning touchdown by throwing a pass to Packers defensive lineman B.J. Raji, who rumbled 18 yards for a TD and a 21-7 lead.

Hanie then threw a touchdown to Earl Bennett of 35-yards and it was 21-14 with 4:43 to go.  But the Bears chance to tie ended when Hanie threw another interception by Sam Shields and that was the game.

Rodgers threw 244 yards with two interceptions and he led The Pack to a quick 14-0 lead.

Minnesota elevates Frazier from interim to permanent head coach

Leslie Frazier Vikings coach (NFL)

The Minnesota Vikings players have said all along that they wanted Leslie Frazier to continue as their head coach.

Owner Zigy Wilf must’ve been listening because he did exactly what the players had suggested.

Earlier in the week, the Vikings management decided to remove the interim tag and keep Frazier, who was the defensive coordinator, and make him the head coach.

Frazier says that he’ll look over the roster, staff, and schemes to see where improvement is needed to get the Vikings back in the playoffs.

He did indicate that he will not ask 41-year-old Brett Favre back under any condition.

Frazier was selected by Wilf on November 22 to replace the controversial Brad Childress who was fired. The Vikings went 3-3 under him after a 3-7 start. The players were more relaxed as opposed to being uptight under Childress who belittled them in the press at times.

Vikings third-string QB Webb surprises Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles felt they had all the cards when they played the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikes were down to their third-string quarterback who was drafted as a wide receiver because Brett Favre was injured and Tarvaris Jackson was also banged-up. So, the call went to Joe Webb, who played quarterback at the University of Alabama-Birmingham.

Webb played like a veteran signal-caller throwing for 195 yards and scored a rushing touchdown leading the Vikings to a stunning win over NFC East champion Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, 24-14.

The game marked the first Tuesday night NFL game since 1946.

The game was switched from Sunday night because of a howling storm that dumped about a foot of snow in the Philadelphia area.

Adrian Peterson rushed for 118 yards and a touchdown, to help the 6-9 Vikings knock the Eagles out of a chance at a first-round playoff bye.

Because of the loss, the Eagles will be the NFC’s number-3 seed and will play host to the number-6 seed on January 8 or 9.
