This week, the Green Bay Packers are preparing for a holiday showdown against one of their biggest rivals. The Vikings are in town, with the two teams still fighting for playoff berths.
The Packers can theoretically clinch a playoff berth this weekend, though the exact details of that clinching are fuzzy. The important thing here is for the Packers to get a win at home against a .500 team. If they do that, then they will be assured - at the very least - of an opportunity to win the NFC North next week at Detroit.
Here’s how to tune in for this weekend’s game.
