The Giants won’t be lucky enough to face Matt Flynn on Sunday. At least not right away.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who suffered a concussion two weeks ago, told a Milwaukee radio station tonight that he’s been cleared to play against the Giants and will start. Given the Giants' penchant for sacking quarterbacks and Rodgers' two concussions suffered already this season, having him finish the game may be more of a challenge.
The Packers’ playoff hopes dwindled with Rodgers sidelined thanks to losses to the Lions and Patriots with Flynn under center (mostly; he replaced Rodgers early in the Lions game), and the Bears have already clinched the NFC North title. But the Packers are just one game behind the Giants for the last wild card spot heading into the final two games of the season and Rodgers certainly gives them the best chance to beat the Giants.
The Packers are expected to announce that Rodgers passed his post-concussion exams on Wednesday.
