NFL Network’s Fran Charles and Tom Waddle caught up with Packers LB Clay Matthews and CB Charles Woodson on Wednesday to talk about the “consolation prize” of a Pro Bowl trip.
According to Woodson, the key to making it to the Super Bowl is peaking at the right time.
“I think the momentum aspect was the biggest change. Because we basically started our playoffs the last two games of the regular season,” Woodson said of the Packers’ championship run last year. “This season, we had everything wrapped up, had a little time off. We came in and played against a team that was hot, the way we were hot the year before.”
That team would be the Giants, who defeated the Packers 37-20 in the divisional round and have ridden their own momentum to the Super Bowl, trying to repeat Green Bay’s run from a year earlier.
