Will the Packers make the playoffs?
However, the Packers have a large concern of their own, namely their next five games. They are brutal.
12/13 @ Chicago
12/20 @ Pittsburgh
Seattle seems like the safest bet for a victory. While the rest of the game are potentially winnable, they certainly will not be easy especially without Aaron Kampman and Al Harris. Thankfully, the Cardinals may have nothing to play come Week 17.
So what does the Falcons schedule look like? Unfortunately, quite a bit easier than ours.
11/29 Tampa Bay
12/13 New Orleans
12/20 @New York Jets
1/3 @ Tampa Bay
The first Tampa Bay should put the Falcons at 6-5, one game behind us. The Jets, Buffalo, and season finale Tampa Bay game should also be wins. That alone gives the Falcons 9 wins. If they can win one of their two tougher games (Philadelphia, New Orleans) the Falcons would be sitting at 10 wins.
Can the Packers match the Falcons 9 or 10 wins and make the playoffs?
