Why the Vikings loss hurts the Packers

Going into Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers were the last undefeated teams in the NFC. The Packers had their bye week while the Seahawks were hosting the Minnesota Vikings(1-3) on Sunday night. Seattle was able to come back late with a 94-yard touchdown drive in the final two minutes to win 27-26 and stay unbeaten. As the Vikings drop another game, the Packers separate even further away from them in the division. The bad news is that Seattle is now 5-0. This year the NFL has instituted a seventh seed in the playoffs so only the number one seed from each conference will get a first-round bye instead of the top two seeds. A Viking win would’ve put Green Bay in control of the one seed while still holding a firm lead over Minnesota in the NFC North division. If Green Bay and Seattle have the same record at the end of the season, the number one seed in the conference will come down to tiebreakers as the two teams won’t face each other in the regular season. 


The Packers go on the road next Sunday to take on the Buccaneers. Kickoff is at 3:25 p.m.
