Full Story:

With their playoff hopes hanging in the balance, the Lions and Packers prepare to face off in what could be a “win-and-in” showdown on “Sunday Night Football.”

The Lions could be eliminated from postseason contention before a ball is even kicked in Green Bay. They need the Rams to take down the Seahawks to stay alive in the NFC playoff race. If Los Angeles manages to beat Seattle, then that would turn Sunday night’s game into a winner-take-all.

Regardless of what happens out West, the mission for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers is simple: Win and punch their ticket to the playoffs.

Green Bay is riding a four-game winning streak that has vaulted the team back into the hunt after a 4-8 start. A victory would complete an improbable comeback for the reigning NFL MVP and his young teammates.
