Cardinals vs. Packers 2012: Blog reacts to Green Bay's much-needed win heading into the bye

Benny Sieu-US PRESSWIRE

The Packers are 6-3 heading into the bye week and it couldn't come at a better time, according to Acme Packing Company.

The Green Bay Packers limped into their game against the Arizona Cardinals and still came out with 31-17 win at Lambeau Field.

As Acme Packing Company points out, it wasn't statistically pretty but it was a gutsy win for a beaten up team that couldn't be happier to finally see their bye week due to all the injuries they've endured during their 6-3 start.

They've fought through this rough stretch and will now get a chance to heal a bit after surviving a three-game stretch where they needed to perform and did.

The three games between the one at Houston and the Week 10 bye have always been considered must-win games for the Packers, and they managed to come away with victories in all three. They now have a week off to get their injured stars back into the fold.

With names like Charles Woodson and Greg Jennings banged up, this was a prime time to knock off the Packers but they withstood it all. Aaron Rodgers didn't have his greatest day but he still managed four touchdowns and when that's considered an average day for a quarterback, that's saying something.

Now, for the Packers and the Acme Packing Company, it's time for rest.
