Packers now control fate, can win NFC North


The Green Bay Packers are not dead in the NFC North. By winning the final two regular season games the Packers will again win the division.

Aided by a Dallas collapse and a Detroit loss to Baltimore the Packers are in the drivers seat for the division title again. Green Bay has won the North the last two years and can do so again with wins over Pittsburgh this week and Chicago the following week.

Of course if Chicago wins out they would claim the division.

It remains unclear as to when Aaron Rodgers will return for the Packers but they have found ways to win with Matt Flynn the last two weeks. Rodgers will be evaluated in the next couple days which should shed light on his status.
