Heading into the playoffs, almost everyone thought the Packers were the best team in the NFL. But the Giants beat the Packers in the divisional round, and Packers receiver Greg Jennings thinks that one game wipes out the 15 the Packers won during the regular season.
Jennings said on NFL Network that when he looks back on the loss to the Giants, he thinks that the Packers didn’t play the way they’re capable of playing. But he ultimately has to accept that the Giants were the better team.
“It hurts. It was a disappointing end to the season,” Jennings said. “But obviously, we lost to a better team at that point. We didn’t play up to our standard, but I can’t knock what the Giants did. They came in our house, beat us on our turf, got it done.”
Asked if he’s over the loss, Jennings said, “Over it. Got to be. Have to be. It’s done.”
Jennings is right that the Packers have to get over it. But that was a tough loss to get over, because while the Giants were the better team on the field that day, the Packers had every reason to think heading into that game that they were the best team in the NFL.
