Who Will the Packers Play in the NFC Divisional Round in Two Weeks?

Sunday was not easy for the Packers in Ford Field against the rival Detroit Lions, as Green Bay had to rally from a 14-point halftime deficit, but finally late in the the game were able to go 68 yards in eight plays to line up veteran kicker Mason Crosby for a 33-yard field goal on the games final play.

If you have been taking in Apuestas de futbol online you know that the Packers enter the offseason as one of the favorites in the NFC, as they won 13 of 16 games, 6 of 8 games on the road, and after a restful bye week they get a chance to sit at home and play the highest seed in the NFC remaining after Wild Card weekend.

Here’s the potentials for the Packers as they get set for a few days off before they prepare for a hopeful run to be playing in Super Bowl LIV on February 2nd in Miami.

1. Packers vs New Orleans Saints

The Saints will have to get past the very good Minnesota Vikings this weekend in a wild card game at home, but if they do they would be a stout matchup for the Packers.

Drew Brees and the Saints offense is very good, and it will be a good matchup for the Packers defense, who have answered the call all season.

The Saints likely would want this game to be a shootout, while the Pack would prefer a 17-14 game to keep Brees, Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara in check.

2. Packers vs Philadelphia Eagles

It took the Eagles to week 17 to finally clinch the very mediocre NFC East, a division that will have likely three teams looking for new coaches after the Cowboys can Jason Garrett.

The Eagles can’t be counted out, as there are still a lot of players on this team that won the Super Bowl just two seasons ago.

Philadelphia comes into the playoffs hot having won their last four games after starting 5-7, and can’t be overlooked as an easy team for the Packers in the Divisional round.

3. Packers vs Seattle Seahawks

The only way this game can happen is if the Vikings stun the Saints in New Orleans and the Hawks top the Eagles in Philadelphia.

Seattle does have one thing going for them, that is the fact they won 7 of 8 road games this season, going just 4-4 at home.

Russell Wilson is an MVP candidate, and while they are banged up at the running back spot, they have a good defense that could give the Pack some problems.

The fact that the game is in Green Bay won’t intimidate the Hawks in the least.
