What Had Happened Was: 1/2/17 Oh, you don’t know? We got you.

GAME. BLOUSES.

The NFC playoff picture has come into clear view and is now set for next weekend after the field dwindled from four possible teams fighting for the final two spots at the start of Sunday’s games.

The Green Bay Packers — winners of the NFC North after the team’s 31-24 victory over the Detroit Lions — are the NFC’s fourth seed and will welcome the fifth-seeded New York Giants to Lambeau Field next weekend. After losing four straight games following a 4-2 start to the season, the Packers rattled off six consecutive wins to close out the season and snatch the division crown from the Lions.

Detroit had a two-game lead going into its final three games, but lost all of them to miss out on its first division crown since 1993. The team will still enter the wild-card weekend as the NFC’s sixth seed, thanks to the Washington football team laying an egg in its win-and-in game against the Giants at FedEx Field.

The Lions have now made the playoffs for the second time in three years under head coach Jim Caldwell and will travel to Seattle to face the third-seeded Seahawks on Saturday night. Aaron Rodgers threw three of his four touchdown passes in the second half to help Green Bay usurp the Lions on Sunday night.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which had the hardest and least likely path to the playoffs, were bounced from the postseason after the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Philadelphia Eagles.
