UPDATE: With their loss to the Vikings Sunday night, the Packers are now the No. 5 seed and will travel to Washington to take on the Vikings next weekend. They play Sunday, January 10 at 4:40 p.m. ET on FOX.
Depending on how they fare against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night, the Green Bay Packers have three different potential playoff matchups.
They could run it back and host the Vikes again. They could attempt to get playoff revenge against the Seattle Seahawks at Lambeau. Or they could head to D.C. and take on the Washington Redskins.
Obviously, who or when the Pack play will depend on their game (8:30 p.m. ET), as well as Seattle’s matchup against the Arizona Cardinals (4:25 p.m. ET). We won’t know their fate until about midnight ET on Sunday night, so until that happens, here’s a look at all of the potential scenarios:
Packers Win, Seahawks Win
The Packers would earn the No. 3 seed, while the Seahawks would move up to No. 5. That means Green Bay would host the Vikings at Lambeau for the second week in a row. In this situation, Green Bay would already have two victories over Minnesota on the season.
Packers Win, Seahawks Lose
The Packers would also earn the No. 3 seed in this situation, but they would instead host the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, January 9 or Sunday, January 10. These two teams met at Lambeau way back in Week 2, with the Pack rolling to a 27-17 victory.
No matter what the Seahawks do, the Packers would get the No. 5 seed, meaning they would have to go on the road and play the Washington Redskins on either Saturday, January 9 or Sunday, January 10.
