GREEN BAY – It's possible for the Packers to clinch their third straight NFC North title this week.

For that to happen, the Vikings (5-7) would have to lose on Thursday night to the Steelers, while the Packers (9-3) would have to beat the Bears on Sunday night.

So, if Pittsburgh beats Minnesota in three days, Green Bay would take to Lambeau Field in prime time Sunday in a division-clinching scenario.

The Packers have won the NFC North in each of Head Coach Matt LaFleur's first two seasons and are looking to make it three straight.

Currently, Green Bay sits in the No. 2 spot in the NFC playoff picture, one game behind the Arizona Cardinals (10-2). The Packers are actually tied for the second-best record with the Buccaneers (9-3), but Green Bay currently has a better conference record than Tampa Bay.
