Clash of the Curses

"I think we're going to shock a lot of people with a great game. I feel like we're going to win," he said. "Not to take anything away from Green Bay, but we're a great football team. I know the record doesn't show it, but I'm going to say it."

-- Lions RB Travis Fisher
Tomorrow could be the end of the Curse of Bobby Lane. The Lions complete their 51st year without a championship in stellar fashion, a record 0-15 going into the game with the Packers. This is the Lions' very own Super Bowl. An achievement in itself that would put a smile on Lane's face.

The Packers, not taking anything for granted, stumble into the game losing 5 in a row and 7 of their last 8. If the Packers can maintain this level of play, the Lions will avert the humiliation of having the worst season in NFL history.

That could be a sign of things to come. Things like 50 years of losing for the Green Bay Packers.

Chicago 20, Packers 17 - Overtime

The set-up was perfect. The Bears give the ball back to the Packers in range for a long field goal. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers expertly passes the Packers into range for a game winner, and the Packers burn most of the clock. Rodgers first fourth quarter come from behind win is close to a lock.

The ESPN motor mouths knew it, too. They had graphics and talking points ready.

But Brett wouldn't let it happen. Blocked!

Bears win in OT. Another dagger from the Favre Curse.

What other possible explanation than Brett's Curse?

The curse should be inactive for today's game against the Texans. The Packers are safely out of the playoff hunt, no need for the curse this week.
