GREEN BAY, Wis. – The Packers kept their postseason hopes alive after a 24-12 win over the Rams. Ahead of them, the uphill battle begins against three tough opponents, starting with the Miami Dolphins on Christmas Day.
FOX6’s Lily Zhao goes one-on-one with Packer’s great Donald Driver to talk about why he thinks this team can win out.
Lily Zhao: “Donald, it’s great to see you and chat Packers football with you after a win. Green Bay faced a must-win scenario, and they got the job done. What impressed you the most about how the team played?”
Donald Driver: “I think it was the consistency part. I think that was the most exciting part about it is that they came out knowing that they played well on all cylinders. I think the offense played well, special teams played well, and the defense played well and so when you can have all three units playing on the same page, I think you know that you’re going to get a win out of it.”
Zhao: “I know you’ve seen all the scenarios that have to happen for the Packers to make the playoffs, but on their end, they just need to win out. Aaron Rodgers has said he has a belief they can do so, what do you think?”
Driver: “I think we all believe that they can do that right? I think that’s the most exciting part. I told somebody, it’s almost like that year we went to the playoffs and won the Super Bowl. We controlled our own destiny and I think that’s the exciting part about it. If they win out, they have a 60 percent chance of making it to the next level. I think that’s the most exciting part.”

Zhao: “Coming up next on Christmas Day is Miami. What matchup are you looking forward to most in that game?”
Driver: “Yeah, the defensive backs and the wide receivers for the Dolphins. I mean, they have a powerful offense, so it’ll be great to watch. I think our defensive backs go out there and Alexander goes out there and play the way they know how to play and shut those guys down.”
Zhao: “You’re one of the all-time Packers greats. You know the receiver position well. When you see rookies Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs finally back on the field at the same time, what do you like most about that 1- 2 punches at receiver?”
Driver: “Yeah, they look good. I think that was the most exciting thing. I mean I kinda missed my boy Doubs out there. I told you he reminds me of myself, but you know Christian Watson has been playing lights out. I think he’s exciting to watch play week in and week out. The confidence that he’s been able to build over the last 3-4 games has been exciting, so I think if those guys can stay healthy, you know the sky’s the limit for what these guys can do rolling into the last three games.”
Zhao: “Donald, I know you’re a very, very busy man, and you were part of the first “Green Bay Cast” on Monday night with Charlie Berens right here on FOX6, just dissecting the game and giving some great anecdotes at the same. What did you think about that experience and how it went?”
Driver: “Yeah, it was good. We had a good time. I mean, he is a character. I just thought him switching in and out, but that’s exactly how Charlie is. No character at all, that’s who he is and that’s his demeanor and I love it. It’s exciting.”
