The Green Bay Packers know when they’ll open the 2012 playoffs. The Packers’ NFC Divisional playoff game has been slated for 3:30pm CT on Sunday, January 15, at Lambeau Field.
The Packers have a first-round bye and will enter the post season as the #1 seed in the NFC.
The Packers would face the lowest remaining seed in that Jan. 15th playoff game in Green Bay. The Detroit Lions enter the playoffs as the lowest seed in the NFC (No. 6). They’ll play at New Orleans and could gain a rematch with the Packers in Green Bay if they can beat the Saints next week. If New Orleans holds serve at home, then the Packers would get the winner of the other NFC Wild Card game, which will pit No. 5 seed Atlanta against the No. 4 seed New York Giants. The Giants gained the final spot in the NFC playoffs with a Sunday night win over the Dallas Cowboys.
