With the New Orleans Saints’ victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night, the only NFC Wild Card spot the Packers can get is the No. 6 seed.
The Saints (11-4) and Falcons (12-3) are still battling for the NFC South title, but whoever finishes second will have the No. 5 seed as a Wild Card because none of the other contenders — the Packers, Giants and Buccaneers — have a chance to get to 11 wins.
Should the Packers get in the playoffs as a No. 6 seed, any and all playoff games would be on the road.
