    Because they lost to the Bears on Thursday night the Packers have fallen to #1 Wild Card and #5 seed in the NFC playoff standings. They trail Minnesota by a half game in the NFC North standings and are a half game ahead of the Atlanta Falcons in the Wild Card.

    And the Vikings play at the Falcons today. The result, either way, will offer a help to the Pack. If Minnesota loses they move back into a tie for first in the division. However, now with two in-division losses they don't have the tiebreaker. A Falcons loss leaves them a game back for the top Wild Card spot.

    Division boils down to sweeping the Vikings. Get the third seed.

    You are correct. Any combination of 4 Vikings wins, as long as one of those wins is over the Packers, the Vikings take the division.

    If the regular season ended today and the playoffs started next weekend the Packers would be going to Washington for a Wild Card game.
