That sound you heard last Sunday at about 4:10 PM Eastern? That was the 1972 Miami Dolphins popping the corks as the last of this year’s undefeated teams fell.
With their 19-14 setback to Kansas City, Mike McCarthy’s Green Bay Packers won’t be matching the 2007 Patriots by finishing the regular season 16-0, or equaling the Dolphins’ unblemished 1972 campaign.
But the Pack still have the inside track on earning the #1 overall seed in the NFC and home-field advantage through the playoffs. A win on Christmas night against the Chicago Bears will lock that up with a week to spare, and the defending champs’ head coach spoke with Westwood One’s Jason Horowitz ahead of the big game against their NFC North rivals.
(Listen to Mike McCarthy’s interview with Jason Horowitz from 12/25/11)
Dave Sims, James Lofton and Hub Arkush (sidelines) will have all the action from Lambeau Field tonight beginning at 8 PM Eastern.
