The Packers are heading to
the post-season for the 7th straight season. Green Bay knew they had clinched a spot in
the NFC tournament before they beat the Raiders 30-20 thanks to the Carolina
Panthers beating the Giants.  Green Bay
was up 14-0 early on the Raiders after Micah Hyde’s interception set up John
Kuhn for a short TD run and then Damarious Randall’s 43 yard pick six added
another TD just :15 seconds later.  The
Raiders cut the lead to 14-13 at the half, but three Mason Crosby field goals
and a 30 yard James Jones TD catch won it for Green Bay
The Packers will head to Arizona
next Sunday.
