Playoffs Still a Mighty Long Shot for Packers
Stranger things have happened, but the Green Bay Packers’ playoff chances are still on life support at 6-6. First, we know the Packers will have to win out to get in.
Their remaining games are at Cleveland, at Carolina, Minnesota and at Detroit. That’s a fairly tough run, minus the Browns. However, with Brett Hundley at quarterback not even a win over the Browns is going to be guaranteed.
The Packers are also going to need plenty of help, too.
The Washington Post has pulled together the full scenario of games here.
- Minnesota Vikings defeat the Carolina Panthers
- Jacksonville Jaguars defeat the Seattle Seahawks
- New Orleans Saints defeat the Atlanta Falcons
Los Angeles Rams defeat the Seattle Seahawks
New Orleans Saints defeat the Atlanta Falcons
This would put the Packers in if they win out by way of head-to-head wins over Seattle and Carolina, plus a better record than Atlanta and a better conference record than Detroit.
The odds of that happening are 750-1.
