The Green Bay Packers host the Pittsburgh Steelers at Lambeau Field this afternoon in what amounts to practically an elimination game for both teams. The Packers control their own path to the playoffs, but a loss opens the door for the Bears or Lions to take control of the NFC North. Pittsburgh needs to win out and get help from all sorts of places to have a shot to end up in a four- or five-way tie for the final AFC Wild-Card spot at 8-8.

Today, the Packers' hopes continue to rest on Matt Flynn's shoulders, as Aaron Rodgers was ruled out on Friday yet again. Having been placed on IR on Saturday, Johnny Jolly will also sit for Green Bay, meaning the rest of the front seven will need to make up for his absence in the running game.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy today's game!
