2012 Green Bay Packers: Season Predictions

Green Bay Packers 2012 Season Predictions

Aaron Rodgers and crew will return to the Super Bowl in 2013.

I’ve embarrassed myself enough already this preseason by trying to predict the Packers 53-man roster. Why not keep the embarrassment going by predicting how each and every Packers game will turn out this season?

A lot of this is tongue-in-cheek, so don’t take my predictions too seriously. But my overall prediction is dead serious: The Packers will finish 12-4 and lose to New England in the Super Bowl.*

*I reserve the right to change my prediction whenever I want without repercussions and any loss of credibility.

Packers 27, 49ers 23
Aaron Rodgers threw for 312 yards and three touchdowns despite getting sacked three times to lead the Green Bay Packers to a 27-23 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

Packers 24, Bears 18
Jay Cutler needed three boxes of tissues on Thursday night instead of the usual two after throwing four interceptions in the Packers 24-18 win over the Bears at Lambeau Field.

Seahawks 30, Packers 26
Matt Flynn torched his former team for 275 yards and three touchdowns in his first start since taking over for struggling rookie Russell Wilson, leading the Seahawks to a 30-26 upset victory over the Packers.

Packers 33, Saints 24
In an effort to get a contract extension worth at least twice Drew Brees’ new salary, Aaron Rodgers threw for 401 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Packers to a 33-24 win over the Saints on Sunday. A group of rowdy Packers fans celebrating something called Throwback Weekend were ejected from the stadium in the fourth quarter after drunkenly streaking across the field. After the group was released on bail, they returned to Lambeau Field and tried to steal all the cheese curds from the stadium.

Packers 41, Colts 10
Aaron Rodgers threw for 428 yards and five touchdowns, Green Bay’s defense battered rookie Andrew Luck, and the Packers beat the Colts 41-10 on Sunday.

Texans 27, Packers 20
Arian Foster rolled over the Packers for 187 yards and the Texans defense intercepted Aaron Rodgers twice as Houston beat Green Bay 27-20 on Sunday night.

Packers 32, Rams 20
Cedric Benson lost two fumbles early, but it didn’t matter as James Starks returned from an injured toe and ran for 103 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers 32-20 win over the Rams on Sunday.
