Packers advance to NFC Championship

The Packers have advanced to the NFC Championship Game and will play either at Seattle or at Chicago next Sunday, Jan. 23.

The Seahawks and Bears play on Sunday afternoon in the other NFC Divisional playoff game.

The Packers were last in the NFC Championship three years ago, losing to the N.Y. Giants at Lambeau Field.

Green Bay is just the second No. 6 seed to beat the No. 1 seed in the NFC since the league went to this playoff format in 1990. The other was Philadelphia over the N.Y. Giants in the 2008 postseason.
