Packers-Lions game set for Sunday night at Lambeau Field 

Green Bay needs win to get into NFC playoffs


GREEN BAY -- The NFL announced today that the Green Bay Packers will host the Detroit Lions at 7:20 p.m. CT on Sunday, Jan. 8, at Lambeau Field.

The game will be broadcast on NBC. The game will also be available on the Packers Radio Network, made up of 50 stations in six states. A full list of stations is available on

More information about additional gameday entertainment and fan activities will be announced in the coming days.

The Packers must win the game to earn the NFC's No. 7 seed for the playoffs. The Lions' playoff fate hinges on this game and the result of the Rams-Seahawks game earlier Sunday.

If the Seahawks win, the Lions will be eliminated before the kickoff at Lambeau Field, and Seattle would earn the last playoff spot if Detroit beats Green Bay. If the Seahawks lose, the Packers-Lions game becomes a de facto playoff game, with the winner getting the No. 7 seed and the loser's season ending.
