Can Aaron Rodgers run the table again? The scenarios for the Green Bay Packers to make the playoffs.



There are two different questions you can ask yourself if you are a Green Bay Packers fan. Can the Green Bay Packers make the playoffs and can Aaron Rodgers run the table again. The answer to the first question is very unlikely, and the answer to the second question is absolutely.


Right now after the Seattle Seahawks lost to the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night, the Packers have a 13.3 percent chance of making the playoffs. So numerically wise, making the playoffs is very unlikely to happen. In order for the Green Bay Packers to make the playoffs, the Packers need to win their remaining four games, the Seattle Seahawks to lose one of their final three games, and the Commanders to lose two of their remaining three games. Here are the remaining schedules for the Seattle Seahawks and the Washington Commanders:



Washington Commanders (number in bold is percent chance of winning):

Week 16

@ 49ers

4:05pm (Sat.)

31.5%

Week 17

Browns

1:00pm

53.6%

Week 18

Cowboys

TBD

20.3%



Seattle Seahawks (number in bold is percent chance of winning):

Week 16

@ Chiefs

1:00pm (Sat.)

13.3%

Week 17

Jets

4:05pm

61.4%

Week 18

Rams

TBD

64.4%


So for the Green Bay Packers fans out there, for the Seattle Seahawks to lose one of their remaining three games and for the Washington Commanders to lose two of their remaining three games, it is very probable. But for the Green Bay Packers to win four straight games, it is highly unlikely. But can Aaron Rodgers run the table? Absolutely. Have we seen him do it before in 2016 when they won six straight games to end the season to make the playoffs? Oh yeah we did. For Green Bay Packers fans and football fans in general, here are the Green Bay Packers' remaining schedule of the season so you can get a glimpse to see how Aaron Rodgers' magic can happen:

Week 15

Rams

8:15pm (MNF)

78%

Week 16

@ Dolphins

1:00pm (Sun.)

40.1%

Week 17

Vikings

4:25pm

57.8%

Week 18

Lions

TBD

63.1%


For the Green Bay Packers to win out, they need their defense to step up big time. Their first assignment is to contain the newly Rams quarterback Baker Mayfield. Then they face a tough task on Christmas Day playing against Tua Tagovailoa and his duo wide receiver threats in Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. So after that Christmas Day matchup, they head back north to the Frozen Tundra to play a very good Vikings team with Justin Jefferson playing his best season ever. After you think it can't get any worse than that, the Packers play their season finale against a very scary and surprising Detroit Lions team. The Green Bay Packers lost to both of these NFC North rival teams early on in the season. That was before Christian Watson became the story and hot hands of the NFL among rookies. Who knows what the Green Bay Packers will do this time. So for Packers fans out there who are religious, send up some prayers for the scenarios to fall in place so the Green Bay Packers can make the playoffs. Your first prayer intention can be for the Packers to win their primetime game tonight against the Los Angeles Rams. And for Aaron Rodgers sake, it is officially time to run the table.
