For the second year in a row, the Green Bay Packers own the NFC’s number one seed. Home-field advantage is theirs, meaning the Packers will advance to the Super Bowl with two victories at Lambeau Field. Considering they are the only undefeated team at home, they have to like their chances.
However, there’s no doubt this fan base is still haunted by many heartbreaking playoff exits, including last year in the NFC title game to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Many of the things the Packers had done so well all season long, just didn’t go their way in that game.
