A turnover feast, a turkey day treat! Packers 34 – Lions 12

The Packers dominated the Lions on Turkey day (a.k.a. Thanksgiving) last Thursday – intercepting Matt Stafford four times and making him look like a turkey too. Donald Driver won the galloping gobbler award, and Charles Woodson provided a spark once again for the Packers defense. Even with a slightly injured Calvin Johnson and a slightly injured Matt Stafford playing their hardest the Lions had no teeth. If it wasn’t for Jordy Nelson’s fumble of the opening kickoff the Lions might not have scored any touchdowns at all. Come on White Lightning, you’re better than that! It was a fantasy football feast as well for anyone who played the Green Bay defense, as they scored a ton of fantasy points from turnovers and sacks.

If you looked at the video above – now you know that Charles Woodson may be old but he still knows what the Heisman Trophy that he won looks like. Check out his pose after the pick-six. Classic!

Now it’s time to bust out of your pants with a John Madden classic, the Turducken. For anyone who doesn’t know, this is a combination of a turkey, a duck, and a chicken, all cooked as one giant bird. So how do you make this roast beast? Try this recipe.
Looking ahead to next week, the Packers play the red hot Ravens on Monday night at Lambeau Field. My roommate has tickets. Maybe I should put away the carving knife now… because I really want those tickets. Here, roomy roomy! I have a surprise for you! Perhaps we will be having a roommate stew to go with our Turducken; oh yes that could be rather tasty. Until next time cheese heads – Go PACK!

This Week’s Winner: C-Wood and his Heisman Trophy pose.
This Week’s Loser: Matthew “#1 Overall Pick, throwing it up for four picks” Stafford.

As always, I encourage and appreciate responses!! I will comment on your comments.

    I really like the mix of football and food in this post. It takes talent to smoothly transition from a Packer game, to John Madden, to a food recipe. OK, so maybe it’s not so hard to relate John Madden to food, but it’s clever nonetheless. Although it was a win over the lowly Lions, it was an important game for Green Bay. After some hard-fought games and battling through injuries, the Packers needed a convincing win and a good stats day. Hopefully, they can use this game as a confidence booster and a launching point for a playoff push down the stretch. I also like the inclusion of a recipe in this post…nice touch.

      Thank you for the comment Matt. I am glad you liked post. I always try to incorporate some aspect of food in with my blog here at Wisconsin Cheddar. I thougth that the turducken was only natural because it was a tradition that John Madden used to talk about on Thanksgiving. I also would like to see the Packers in the playoffs. The next four games are going to tell us whether they are contenders or pretenders. I hope that they are the first one.
