Don’t Look Now, Green Bay Is The Six Seed
UH OH. Green Bay Packers received quite a Christmas gift when almost every team except for New York lost around them. Packers rose to the six seed by Monday night when Washington fell to Carolina, 26-15. Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are tied in every category, and Green Bay maintains a strength of schedule lead. If you were to tell people after Sunday night debacle in DC, Green Bay would be the six seed, no one would have believed you. Not even the biggest optimists.
Packers already had control of their own destiny, and now, the door is open for them to clinch a playoff spot. Atlanta needs to beat Carolina, New Orleans takes down Tampa, Chicago beats Washington and Packers beat Vikings. It’s not impossible to think about next week. Green Bay isn’t relying on San Francisco or Cleveland to get it done.
Packers are at a six seed, but they’re not done yet. Still, work needs to be done over the past two weeks with bigger fish to fry potentially later.
