Packers Clinch Division

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel the Green Bay Packers have clinched the NFC North Division title and a playoff berth with their 38-7 victory over the Oakland Raiders Sunday.

Led by two special teams touchdowns by cornerback Will Blackmon, the Packers cruised to an easy victory after losing to the Dallas Cowboys a week earlier.

Blackmon who has missed a lot of the season due to a broken foot, scored on a 57 yard punt return and also recovered a muffed punt in the endzone for a touchdown.

Ryan Grant also had a sensational game for the Packers as he rushed for 156 yards and a touchdown. Grant has more rush yards after week 8 than any other running back in the league.

The balanced attack of the Packers allowed for Brett Favre to ease into the game, a week after separating his shoulder and bruising his throwing elbow forcing him to leave the game against Dallas. By starting he increased his consecutive starts streak to 250 regular-season games.

He demonstrated that he was still an elite quarterback, even while being banged up, as he threw for 266 yards and two touchdowns, including an 80 yard touchdown to Greg Jennings.
