The Green Bay Packers will need a lot of help to make the playoffs in 2022. Winning the rest of the games on their schedule will be the number one priority. However, there will be a few teams the Packers will need to lose if they want that elusive seventh seed. The Washing Commanders are one of those teams. During the Sunday Night Football game, the Commanders lost to the New York Giants 20-12. That loss helped Green Bay.
Packers’ Updated Playoff Odds After Sunday Night Football
After the Commanders lost to the Giants on Sunday Night Football, the Packers’ playoff chances slightly increased. More so, it created a clear path to the postseason. According to the New York Times’ playoff simulator, if the Green Bay Packers win out, they have a 65% chance to make the playoffs. In general, Green Bay needs help from three teams to get that elusive seventh seed.
- Seattle Seahawks must lose one of their final three remaining games. Their final three games come against the Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets, and Los Angeles Rams.
- Washington Commanders must lose two of their final three games. Their final three games come against the San Francisco 49ers, Cleveland Browns, and Dallas Cowboys.
- If Washington doesn’t continue their losing streak that began on Sunday Night Football, losing two of their final three games, Green Bay’s only other option is to have the New York Giants lose all three of their remaining games. Their final three games come against the Minnesota Vikings, Indianapolis Colts, and Philadelphia Eagles.
As always, the first priority will certainly be Green Bay winning the rest of their games. That starts on Monday Night when the Packers host the Los Angeles Rams at Lambeau Field.
