The NFL Playoffs Picture for the NFC Week 16

10 of 11

Green Bay Packers

Dec 15, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant (88) runs the ball while Green Bay Packers strong safety Morgan Burnett (42) attempts to make a tackle in the second quarter at AT

Current Record: 7-6-1

Current NFL Playoffs Position: Out

If they win out:

Like the Cowboys, the Packers need help from the Lions if their playoff run is going to be a reality. Simply winning out isn’t enough. That being said, if they can win their last two games this season, they only need the Lions to slip up once in their last three games, and then they’re in, most likely with Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb back in action.

If they lose out:

If the Packers fail to beat the Steelers or Bears in their last two, they will not only miss the playoffs, they will finish with a losing record for the first time since 2008, Aaron Rodgers’ first season as the Packers starter.

Teams they’re rooting against:

Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia
