MILWAUKEE — The Green Bay Packers can control their fate in the playoffs with a victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday, January 1st. But that’s not the only way the green and gold get to see some post-season action.
NFL.com has laid out the following scenarios for the Packers:
Green Bay clinches division title
- Green Bay win or tie
Green Bay clinches a playoff berth
- Washington Redskins loss
- Washington Redskins tie + Tampa Bay Buccaneers win + Green Bay clinches at least a tie in strength of victory over Tampa Bay
- (Note: GB clinches at least a tie in strength of victory tiebreaker over TB if one of the following teams win or tie: SEA, HOU, JAX, PHI. GB has already clinched strength of schedule tiebreaker over TB in this scenario)
By the way, FOX6 is airing has a football double header on Sunday which features the Dallas Cowboys visiting the Philadelphia Eagles at noon — and the New York Giants visiting the Washington Redskins at 3:25 p.m. As noted above, that second game could have a bearing on the Packers’ playoff hopes.
