If Packers make playoffs, Wild Card game would be in Philly

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 28, 2010 – 10:56 pm

With Philadelphia losing to Minnesota Tuesday night, the Packers now know who their first-round opponent would be should they qualify for the NFC playoffs.

The Eagles lost their chance for a first-round bye with the loss to the Vikings and now are locked into the NFC’s No. 3 seed. If the Packers beat the Bears on Sunday, Green Bay would earn the No. 6 seed and travel to Philadelphia for a Wild Card game on Jan. 8 or 9.

The Bears are now guaranteed a first-round bye and no worse than the NFC’s No. 2 seed for the playoffs. Chicago still has a chance at the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, but the Bears would need the Falcons to lose to the Panthers and the Saints to lose to the Buccaneers on Sunday. The Bears would then have to beat the Packers to get the top seed.

Both of those NFC South games are noon (CT) kickoffs on Sunday, so the Bears will know by the time the game with the Packers kicks off at 3:15 p.m. whether or not they are playing for anything playoff-wise. If either the Falcons or the Saints win in their early game Sunday, the Bears will know they’re locked into the No. 2 seed before playing the Packers.

The Packers can earn a Wild Card playoff spot by beating the Bears, or by having the Buccaneers lose to the Saints and having the Giants lose to the Redskins. The New York-Washington game has a 3:15 CT kickoff and will be played at the same time as Chicago-Green Bay.
