Packers play at 3:30 p.m. CT on Sunday, Jan. 15

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 1, 2012 – 10:34 pm

The Packers’ NFC Divisional playoff game has been slated for 3:30 p.m. CT on Sunday, Jan. 15, at Lambeau Field. The opponent will be either the Lions, the Falcons or the Giants.

The Packers have a first-round bye in the playoffs and then host the divisional round. As the No. 1 seed, the Packers will play the lowest remaining seed after Wild Card weekend.

The lowest seed, No. 6 Detroit, plays at No. 3 New Orleans in the Wild Card round, and the Lions would come to Green Bay if they beat the Saints. Should New Orleans win that game, the Packers would get the winner of the other NFC Wild Card game, which will pit No. 5 seed Atlanta at the No. 4 New York Giants, who beat the Dallas Cowboys to win the NFC East on Sunday night.

    How can I get playoff tickets to see the best NFL team? First time going to a game so I really want tickets!

    Tickets can only be obtained third party…I would go through Stub-hub, Ticketmaster etc to ensure you get your tickets…

    Well Adele,sorry but , actually the best way is to have your dad get his name on the waiting list 30 years ago. Or you can pay alot of money to a ticket broker.

    My son bought tickets from Stub Hub. He got good seats in endzone (row 43) but he was just bumming that the game is on Sunday instead of Saturday due to driving from south eastern pa. Ohh well at least he gets to go. Go Pack Go

    to adele who is looking for tickets juts go to the game and you will havbe plenty of choices to scalp tickets
    My guess is you will be able to get a single upper row for under $200.

    A good QB can shred the Packers defense to pieces and thats my biggest concern going into the playoffs. If Dom Capers has a plan he better start to work on it because this is not the same defense that won a Super Bowl last year and N.O. could win a shoot out and S.F has a very good defense and either team are capable of beating the pack

    Yesterday the Packers ran a very base style defense for two reasons, key starters were out, they wanted to get a look at some back-ups. The defense created turnovers made improvements. The score is what matters and Dom Capers will not disappoint in the playoffs. I think the Packers are sitting right where they want to be. Everybody close to healthy and ready to for the Divisional game.

    My guess is we will see a completely different defense than we’ve seen during the regular season. Capers is a Master and I believe he’ll come through, so long as the defense executes. Each prospective opponent has a demension that should concern the Packers, but I think the Packers will prepare effectively for whoever they face. GO PACK GO… one game at a time!

    Help me understand. Both NFC Divisional level games are listed to be played on Sunday, January 15th. The Pack plays the late game at 3:30 PM meaning the 49ers would play the early game at 1:00 Eastern time. That would mean the game would start at 10 AM Pacific time. Am I missing something?

  15. By Linda on Jan 2, 2012 | Reply

    I had to watch the game via internet but WOW is all I can say. We are lucky to have two of the greatest QB let alone a super TEAM. Everyone is in sink. Keep it up. I want the best team all the way. And thanks McCarthy!

    If the trade Flynn we could have a whole new defense as well as a bunch of draft picks.

    to Jack. The information on NFL.com’s website (as of 1/2/12) and the information we are being told on packers.com and in local media are not the same. I’m assuming that the NFL.com site is wrong (both on the top line bar AND in the playoffs section under “schedules”… which say different things!), because they never do both games from the same conference on the same day.

    @ Jeff.
    Thanks, Jeff. Knew something had to be wrong there. I went to the 49ers website and they are saying they have the 4:30 PM game on Saturday. That makes more sense. I agree, I have never seen them play both games from the same conference on the same day. Thanks again. I’ll be there on the 15th with a fresh voice after wearing mine out yesterday. Go Pack!!

    Will there be a bus from Chicago to Lambeau for the playoff game (and back) on January 15th?

    A ticketholder said he was giving us tickets to this, but then someone offered him more money, so we’re not going anymore!

    The Packers are lucky to have the offense they have. If they did not, they would be 8-8 for the year. Here is alittle locker room help for the Packer defense, ”
    The Green Bay packer defense could not stop the girl scouts from delivering cookies”. I would love to say that in the locker room, because whatever Capers is saying is obviously not working. I hope the defense shows up for the playoffs.

    @Mark Van Kessel,
    15-1 not 51-1, James Starks not John, and Nick Collins has been out since September. I like your enthusiasm though.
    As far as everyone hating on our “D”, saying that they are the worst Defense in the history of the league? Lead the league in interceptions (31), 130 passes defended. I’ll take that horrible defense any day.

    Capers will unveil a Packer Defense that will blow fans away come playoff time. WORD.. Go Pack Go!

  27. By packersownerandshareholder on Jan 3, 2012 | Reply

    I can’t wait!! The only team that gives me a little anxiety is the Giants. We all know the history and they played us tough once all ready this year.

    They are an out door team with a quality run game and running back (Ahmad Bradshaw not “Tip Toe Bandit”) and that alone could limit the time our incredible Offense is on the field. They aren’t afraid of us or afraid of comming into Lambeau because they have done it before and beateen us and “The Best Team Ever”, *cough* Patriots, back in ’09.

    Eli is playing with a lot of confidence and the team as a whole is playing with a lot of swagger. Lets not forget a lot of the guys on that team have Super Bowl rings.

    BUT at the end of the day I remember we have a man named Aaron Rodgers on our team and a D that has given up a lot of yards but takes the ball away from the opposing team and puts it back in that mans hands at a very high rate. In addition the Road to the Super Bowl must go through Lambeau Field and the greatest fans in sports!! GO PACK GO

    I think we can beat the NYG .. I am more worried about Atlanta. But maybe “Tebow the Great” {{cough}} will take care of that for us somehow.
