Packers lose in overtime

The Packers defense once again couldn't hold up in the 4th quarter, or in overtime.

Packers lose 20-17 on a 38-yard field goal in OT.

The pundits keep talking about how QB Aaron Rodgers is now 0 for 8 in 4th quarter comebacks. You know what? A majority of those games would have been won had the defense or special teams not blown it. Rodgers had the Pack in position to win the game at the end of the 4th quarter. The field goal attempt gets blocked. That's not on Rodgers.

The Packers dominated the game. Special teams let them down and directly led to points for Chicago over the course of the game. The defense -- again -- gave up a couple big plays down the stretch, and gave up a stupid horse collar roughing penalty in overtime that put Da Bearz inside the Packers 35.

It makes you sick. It really does.

Can't say any more now, other than this game was so typical of the last half of this season especially.

Sickening. Absolutely sickening.
