When the decision to kickoff or receive to start the overtime arises, I would think very seriously about giving the other team the ball first if defense was my strength and we were facing an offense I felt like we could control.
A hard fought win over the Bears in Week 17 clinched a playoff spot for the Packers, the final available seed in the NFC.
