Most important picture from Packers win? Perhaps not even during the game

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Sep 17, 2013

Sunday's 38-20 Packers win over Washington had all the record-breaking offensive performances.  

It had the opening of the new south end zone stands and the largest crowd in team history.

Such victory brings lots of images of Packers success.

But perhaps the most important image of what happened inside Lambeau Field didn't even happen during the 60 minutes of the game.

It happened afterward, in a gesture between Aaron Rodgers and his counterpart, Robert Griffin III that might not have been seen in some football stadiums around America as recently as 50 years ago.

Perhaps some people may not think a handshake on a football field between people of different ethnic backgrounds is a big deal.

If that's because people simply see it as handshake between two quarterbacks, that's an even better fact.
