The NFL has announced that the Packers' divisional playoff game at Lambeau Field will be on Saturday, Jan. 12, at 3:30 p.m. CT. As the No. 2 seed in the NFC, the Packers (13-3) have a first-round bye in the playoffs and then will play either the No. 3, 4 or 5 seed at Lambeau Field. Those teams, respectively, are Seattle, Tampa Bay and the New York Giants. Seattle will host a wild-card game against Washington on Saturday, Jan. 5, at 3:30 p.m. CT. Should the Seahawks win, they would come to Green Bay to play the Packers. If Washington wins, the Redskins would go to No. 1 seed Dallas on Sunday, Jan. 13, for a 3:30 p.m. CT kickoff. On Jan. 12, the Packers would play the winner of the Tampa Bay-New York game, which is in Tampa on Sunday, Jan. 6, at noon CT. The AFC divisional games are scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 12, at 7 p.m. CT at New England, and Sunday, Jan. 13, at noon CT in Indianapolis. Both conference championship games are scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 20. The AFC game will kick off at 2 p.m. CT, with the NFC game at 5:30 p.m. CT.
