They can, however, win a playoff spot by the end of the week if any of these scenarios occur:
I'll let you judge whether any of those scenarios are likely. Without mentioning any names, I'm going to say Option No. 2 represents the Packers' best opportunity. Don't forget to get familiar with ESPN.com's Playoff Machine if you haven't already.

(Hat tip to Michael Signora of NFL for these scenarios.)
