There is a chance that after today, the Green Bay Packers will know their opponents in next week’s Divisional Playoff game. At the very least, they should have an idea of when they play next weekend by the end of the day today, even if they do not know their opponents until Monday night.
Today, two of the three NFC Wild Card games take place, and a win by either road team will lock in that team’s trip to Lambeau Field next weekend. Today’s early game features the 7th-seeded Eagles at the #2 Buccaneers, and an Eagles upset will book them a flight to Wisconsin. If Tampa wins in that contest, however, the San Francisco 49ers would have an opportunity to play the Packers by beating the Dallas Cowboys in the mid-afternoon contest.
Of course, if both home teams win today, the Packers will face the winner of tomorrow’s game between the Rams and Cardinals. In that situation, expect the Packers to play a Sunday game in the Divisional round, with the schedule likely to be announced during tonight’s AFC game between the Steelers and Chiefs.
Keep it here for all of today’s Wild Card action as we follow along with all three of today’s games.
