The Green Bay Packers will be looking for their sixth consecutive victory on Sunday when they meet the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2011 Super Bowl. That hot streak is bringing a bit of hope to the rest of the NFL. Courtesy of Subway, we had a few minutes with Ndamukong Suh on Wednesday and he noted the Packers late season winning streak brings a little hope to everyone.
They had some dropoffs here and there which is expected because this is the NFL and everybody's good and anyone can win at any point in time. It's just a matter of pushing for the long haul because you never know what can happen. You could get on a hot streak. a hot streak at the right time like they did, and get into the Super Bowl.
The Packers winning streak was preceded by a two-game losing streak -- including a loss to Suh's Lions -- so they nearly found themselves out of the playoffs. The Packers faced a must-win in the final game of the season and yet a month later they find themselves in the Super Bowl.
That the Lions can turn around next year and win the division is the reason we love the NFL so much. There have been 10 different NFC Super Bowl representatives in the last 10 years so it's not crazy to think a team like the Lions can turn it around.
