The Packers were destroyed in the NFC Championship by the San Francisco 49ers. They got behind early and never looked competitive in a game that would’ve sent them to the Super Bowl.

Hopefully, everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving and didn’t beat the hell out of anyone on Black Friday. If you got to enjoy the three Thanksgiving games, all three were entertaining, unless you’re a Cowboys fan then just two were entertaining. The underdog covered in two of the three games with the Falcons coming up a point or two short of covering the spread in their game against the Saints. With the NFL playoffs a little more than a month away, there should be plenty of competitive games this week.
