The Green Bay Packers are up against it now when it comes to getting the one-seed. They entered last week as the favorites in the NFC to secure the all-valuable bye, but now sit behind Arizona, who has a 49% chance to take it, per FiveThirtyEight. Green Bay sits in the second position at 30%. Green Bay does have an ace in the hole as they have the head-to-head victory over Arizona, so they only need to match records.
That is what makes this Sunday’s game against Los Angeles so important; Green Bay cannot afford to slip multiple games behind Arizona.
