Packers get No. 2 seed for NFC playoffs

Green Bay will play at home in divisional round on Sunday, Jan. 12, at 5:40 p.m. CT


GREEN BAY – The Packers are the No. 2 seed for the NFC playoffs and will play at home in the divisional round on Sunday, Jan. 12, at 5:40 p.m. CT.

San Francisco (13-3) earned the No. 1 seed with a down-to-the-wire 26-21 victory over Seattle on Sunday Night Football, winning the NFC West and gaining home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

The 49ers' victory relegated the Packers (13-3) to the No. 2 seed after Green Bay secured a first-round bye with a come-from-behind 23-20 win at Detroit earlier Sunday.

Following the bye, the Packers will play in the final divisional round game the weekend of Jan. 11-12, getting the Sunday evening time slot on FOX.

Green Bay will host either No. 3 seed New Orleans (13-3), No. 4 Philadelphia (9-7) or No. 5 Seattle (11-5), depending on the results on wild-card weekend Jan. 4-5. NFC North rival Minnesota (10-6) is the No. 6 seed but wouldn't play Green Bay for a third time this season until a potential NFC Championship matchup.

If the Saints beat the Vikings (Sunday, Jan. 5, 12:05 p.m. CT), New Orleans will come to Lambeau Field in the divisional round. If the Vikings win, they'll go to San Francisco and the Packers will get the winner of the Seahawks-Eagles game (Sunday, Jan. 5, 3:40 p.m. CT).
