This Sunday, the Green Bay Packers will have a chance to make a statement to the NFC that they will not go quietly into the night. That they will not vanish without a fight. That they’re going to live on. They’re going to survive.
(I’m not saying that the Seattle Seahawks are evil, like the aliens from Independence Day...but I’m not not saying it.)
The Packers come into this week at .500 with a record of 6-6, two games behind the Detroit Lions in the NFC North and a game behind Tampa Bay in the NFC Wild Card race. A loss this week will put a huge damper on their chances of winning the division, and makes a Wild Card appearance highly unlikely as well. However, a win over one of the NFC’s projected top seeds could vault them right back into the thick of the discussion.
The good news for viewers across the United States is that most of the country (aside from some swathes of the South) will be able to watch the game on your local TV stations. Scroll through our Game Primer to see how and when to tune in, and get ready for this weekend’s game.
