Despite going five weeks in between wins, losing just about every good player on their team to injury, and tieing, the Packers currently sit at 7-7 sixteen weeks in with a chance to win their third consecutive NFC North Title with a victory this Sunday in Chicago. Right now, it doesn't appear Rodgers will play in the game, but that doesn't mean he has no chance at returning for the playoffs. So, here's I think will happen in the postseason if the Packers beat the Bears this weekend:
1. THEY MIGHT BEAT THE SAINTS:
Earlier this season, the Saints beat the 49ers down in New Orleans, meaning that they currently control the NFC's 5 seed. Now being the 5 seed, they would obviously play in the Packers in the Wild Card round, which I think is an easy pick depending on whether or not Rodgers plays. If he does, Packers will win. If he doesn't, Saints will win. Simple.
2. THEY'LL PROBABLY LOSE TO THE SEAHAWKS:
Now if the Packers somehow manage to beat the Saints with Matt Flynn, they'll definitely lose to the Seahawks in the divisional round. But, if Rodgers plays, they might just pull it out. Remember the Atlanta game a few years ago? The Falcons looked pretty unbeatable in that one, but the Pack still won it. So yea, they're never guaranteed to fail.
3. THEY'LL BE A MYSTERY IN THE CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND:
By this point, with Flynn or Rodgers, the Packers will be a mystery. Now I think the Cowboys will beat the Eagles next week, making them the 3 seed, but I don't see them beating the 49ers, who I think will also beat the Panthers in the Divisional Round. So, if the Pack are still alive at this point, I think they'll be playing at home against San Fran. Again, with Rodgers, they'll win. Without him, they'll probably lose.
Anyway, yea, that's what I think will happen. It probably won't be right, but it could be.
