The Green Bay Packers have rebounded nicely from a 2-5 start to being on the brink of a postseason berth.

There are all sorts of playoff scenarios for the final week of the regular season Saturday and Sunday, and the Packers should consider themselves lucky that theirs is so easy.

With the win this past Sunday over the rival Vikings, the Packers path to the postseason is simple: win and you're in.

If the Packers lose, they will not be a part of the postseason this year. It's as simple as that.

For a team that began 2-5, it has been a very impressive turnaround. The Packers have won 6 of their last night to currently stand at 8-8.

Green Bay takes on the 7-9 Chicago Bears at home at Lambeau Field on Sunday, a 3:25 kickoff time.

The Packers are a 3-point favorite currently according to ESPN Bet in the contest.

Just like last season, the Packers endured a long losing skid mid-season, rebounded to playoff contention, and once again have a win-and-in Week 18 game against a division rival at home.

Last year, the Packers lost said game to the surging Detroit Lions, ending their season and the Packer career of Quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

This season feels a bit different, but anything is possible coming up on Sunday when the games oldest rivalry adds another chapter.

Kickoff from Lambeau is set for 3:25, and you can listen to the game beginning with pregame coverage at 3:00 on ESPN 102.3 AM 1000 KSOO!
