What are the chances the Packers will make the 2021 playoffs?

The Arizona Cardinals' loss to the Los Angeles Rams has resulted in a 10-3 three-way tie in the NFC with the Green Bay Packers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Week 14 saw a change in the leaderboard as an Arizona Cardinals loss to the Los Angeles Rams dropped them to a three-way tie with the Green Bay Packers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The new top seed

With this development, the Packers have gone up to become the number one seed in the NFC, at least for the moment. They are in the top spot because they have the best record against NFC teams, having only two losses, while all three losses of both Tampa Bay and Arizona have been in this division.

As the number one seed, they are now given a greater than 99% chance of getting into the playoffs. If they win all their remaining four games, they will be given the first-round bye which is given to the number one NFC team.

The remaining four

The Packers will face the 8-5 Baltimore Ravens on Sunday for their Week 15 matchup. The main story to watch out for in this game is the health status of their quarterbacks.

Aaron Rodgers has said that his toe was worse following their win against the Chicago Bears, while Lamar Jackson injured his ankle during their loss against the Cleveland Browns.

Other NFL stories:

After Baltimore, they will face the Browns (7-6), the Minnesota Vikings (6-7), and the Detroit Lions (1-11). Among these teams the Browns will likely be the most hungry for a win, as they are not yet out of the AFC North race.

Green Bay is the favorite to win all its remaining games, and as long as the team remains healthy, it is likely that they will be able to maintain their position as the number one seed.
