Packers celebrated Lions loss to Ravens on Monday night

The Green Bay Packers were well aware they needed help to put themselves in a better position to make the playoffs. Rarely will you find an NFL player that is willing to admit they read what’s written about them or watch the scoreboards on Sundays. However, most of them do. It’s tough to completely avoid and the Packers knew a loss from the Detroit Lions Monday night would greatly benefit they playoff aspirations.

Packers guard Josh Sitton had several teammates over to his house to watch Monday night’s game between the Lions and Baltimore Ravens. For a night at least, the Packers were massive Ravens fans. When Justin Tucker’s 61-yard field goal flew through the uprights to give the Ravens a 18-16 lead, the house party exploded in celebration.

“We were kind of jumping around like little school girls to be honest with you,” Sitton said in an interview with Alex Marvez and Solomon Wilcots on Sirius XM NFL Radio. “We were pretty damn excited.”

The loss by the Lions now gives the Packers (and Chicago Bears) control of their own destiny in the NFC North. If Green Bay wins out against Pittsburgh and Chicago, they will win the division.

It helped us obviously,” Sitton said. “We’ve got to go and do what we’ve got to do this weekend to make it even matter.”

  1. Really Josh Sitton? I realize we’re in the same division. But i just hate Josh Sitton. You were probably so excited because the last time you talked smack you got put in place. You know, when detroit sacked you guys 7 times and won 40-10?

  2. Three teams with obvious weaknesses essentially backing into the playoffs, smells of one-and-done once there. However, it still makes for some exciting football. Go Bears!

  3. I think it’s tremendous that all the top teams in the NFC North are all playing their hearts out during the final weeks of the season, fiercely battling for that glorious playoff berth. The Lions, Bears and Packers are all a credit to the Black and Blue Division, and to the NFL community.

    And then there are the Vikings.

    Awesome, you’ve been victorious against Dallas and Atlanta by a combined total of two points. Keep dancing and celebrating. Bumpkins.

    Let me explain how the NFL works. If you win, that counts as 1 win whether it be by 40 points or 1 point. Then they total all the wins at the end of the season to determine who gets to go to the playoffs.

    If you are a Viking fan, the low number of wins cannot be increased by the fact that you lost 5 of your games in the last 30 seconds. That still counts as a loss. Get enough of them and you will finish in last place, again.

    32 teams start out the year with the same goal, to win the Superbowl. Come December, only those teams that might qualify for the playoffs are playing meaningful games so sorry that the Vikings finally decided to win a few well after it means anything. All that does is get you a later draft pick.

    Lesson over with.

  5. Playing hearts out by beating Falcons,Cowboys, and tying Vikes really a good run Bears lost to Vikes and Lions will also so I am really impressed with the NFC North

  6. Must suck to watch the Packers be so consistent. What is it, we have won more games than any other team in the last 25 years? sefinition of excellence.

  7. Go Packers, Bears and Vikes. As long as it’s not the dirty Lions. I hope Bears or Packers keep them out of the playoffs. Lions remind me of the Stealers.
