    Let me see if I have our playoff hopes straight.

    Here are the NFC teams that are still hoping for a Wild Card.
    Green Bay Packers
    New York Giants
    Carolina Panthers
    Atlanta Falcons
    St. Louis Rams

    For GB to go to the play-offs, we need the following:

    First, Green Bay needs to beat Chicago.
    Chicago home game - NBC on Sunday night.
    Chicago has injuries and *might* rest some players.

    Secondly, we need the Giants to lose to the Redskins.
    Washington home game - Saturday night on NFLN
    Giants have Strahan out and a new OC.

    So, if we get that far (GB win, NY loss) then we need one of the following three we're in:

    1.) Vikings beat Rams
    Vikings Home game - Sunday at noon

    2.) Panthers beat the Saints
    Saints home game @ 1pm EST.
    Saints coach said he will be resting some players. Panthers may have Delhomme back (instead of Weinke).

    3.) Falcons beat the Eagles
    Eagles home game @ 4:15pm EST.

    The Packers will know before their game starts on Sunday night whether they have a shot at the playoffs with a win.


    I added Trom's noted potential game factors from this thread:

    There are two other long shot possibilities for the Pack to make the play offs. Since they are such long shots, I figured I wouldn't list them. Mostly I wanted to know the game times of the above games and so I thought you might want to know too. Here is the best link I found explaining our chances:
