The Green Bay Packers Clinch 7th Straight Playoff Appearance 

With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers losing on Thursday night, all the Packers needed to clinch their seventh consecutive trip to the playoffs, was either a loss or tie by the New York Giants or the Washington Redskins.
As luck would have it, the Giants suffered a defeat at the hands of the still undefeated Carolina Panthers. This keeps the Packers tied with the Patriots for the longest current streak of playoff appearances. 
When the day started, the Packers knew that they controlled their own destiny, “win and you’re in.” That is no longer necessary, but now a win would keep them one full game ahead of the Minnesota Vikings, who won today against the Bears, and put Green Bay that much closer to winning their 5th consecutive crown in the NFC North.
A win would also keep the window open for the Packers to win the number 2 spot and a bye in the NFC playoffs.
