What a tough loss. It was another heart-wrenching loss, not to mention to their archrivals, the Chicago Bears. So many things were lost on this night - the chance to tie up the Bears in the all-time series (now 94 to 92), the chance to go ½ a game up on the Vikings in the division, any real chance at a first-round bye, and of course, a loss on the night the Packers retired Brett Favre's number.
The highlight of the game was halftime, when the retirement of Favre's number took place. Favre gave a great speech that made me a little teary-eyed, and then Bart Starr, perhaps for the final time, was brought out to the field, where he shared an embrace with Favre. It was a very touching moment that I'll remember for a long time.
The game was very disappointing, but I choose to just think about the halftime ceremony, which was a great moment that hopefully takes the sting out of the loss (or, perhaps because they lost on the same night, makes it a little worse).
+'s & -'s:
+: Favre and Starr.
-: Davante Adams, James Jones, J.C. Tretter.
