Packers Could Have Big Advantage in Divisional Round
The Green Bay Packers earned the No. 1 seed in the NFL Playoffs and the lone bye in the NFC on Wild Card Weekend. The Packers will take the field with NFL MVP favorite Aaron Rodgers leading the way in the divisional round, which is an incredible weapon to have in these win-or-go-home games.
Now it looks like Green Bay will gain another advantage.
Up to 6,000 season ticket holders will be allowed to attend the Packers' divisional round matchup on the weekend of Jan. 16-17 (date and opponent still TBD).
Green Bay will play the winner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Washington Football Team clash if both the Chicago Bears and Los Angeles Rams lose this weekend. The Bears are a 9.5-point underdog at New Orleans, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, while the Los Angeles Rams are a 3-point underdog at Seattle, so a Green Bay-Tampa Bay matchup looks likely.
The Packers led the NFL in scoring this season with 31.8 points per game, but Green Bay's worst performance of the season was a 38-10 loss at Tampa Bay.
Green Bay now has the site and crowd advantage, along with the extra rest, to make a run at Super Bowl LV. The Packers' odds to win the Super Bowl are currently +470 at FanDuel Sportsbook.
