Can the Packers win their remaining three games?
The Green Bay Packers are three victories away from the NFC’s number one seed and home-field advantage in the postseason. The math is that simple. Standing in their way are the Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings, and Detroit Lions.
Green Bay entered Week 15 atop the NFC. It had the advantage in a three-way tie. There is no longer any tie.
The Arizona Cardinals were stunned in a blowout loss to the Detroit Lions, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers put in an equally surprising performance as they were shut out by the New Orleans Saints.
It means the Cardinals, Buccaneers, and Dallas Cowboys are all a game behind the NFC-leading Packers.
Green Bay won’t necessarily need to win out to get the top seed, but doing so will ensure its fate remains in its hands.
Up first is a home game on Christmas Day against the Browns. They then stay at Lambeau Field to host the Vikings in Week 17, before hitting the road for a Week 18 meeting with the Lions.
The Packers know what they need to do to close out the regular season strong and earn themselves a bye week before a home game in the divisional round.
The question is, will they win all three?
