The Green Bay Packers did it. They clinched a wild-card berth in their first season with Jordan Love at quarterback, an incredible accomplishment.

It's especially impressive considering this team was once 2-5, having lost four straight games. From that moment, the Packers finished 7-3 in their final 10 games.

The Detroit Lions won the NFC North, but the Packers have qualified for the postseason as a wild-card team. By the time they kicked off against the Chicago Bears in Week 18, Matt LaFleur's team knew they had to win. A loss would've eliminated them from contention.

According to the CBS broadcast, the Packers have become the youngest team to make the playoffs since 1978. LaFleur deserves a ton of credit, as do the young players who have stepped up down the stretch.

What seed are the Packers in the playoffs?

Green Bay is the No. 7 seed in the NFC.

The Packers took care of business against the Bears, leaving their seeding in the Los Angeles Rams' hands. They held on for victory over the San Francisco 49ers, which meant the Packers ended up with the seventh seed in the conference.

That led to one of the most unexpected upsets in recent playoff history, as the Packers marched into Dallas and blew out the Dallas Cowboys. It was made extra sweet thanks to the win coming at the expense of Mike McCarthy and it sets up another potential revenge game in the Divisional Round against the San Francisco 49ers next week.

Who will the Packers play in the playoffs?

The Packers will visit the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round. The Cowboys are the No. 2 seed in the NFC. The game will be played on Sunday, January 14 at 3:30 pm CT.

It gives us a fascinating matchup between the Packers and Mike McCarthy. McCarthy led Green Bay to a Super Bowl, 10 playoff wins, and eight straight postseason appearances between 2009 and 2016. He now aims to end the Packers' season. It will be Matt LaFleur's fourth playoff run in five years.
