Aaron Rodgers might finally get his wish: an NFC Championship Game at Lambeau Field.
All the Green Bay Packers have to do is win one more game and that becomes a reality.
Rodgers ensured that in Sunday’s regular-season finale thanks in part to a perfect first half on the way to a 35-16 win over the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.
It gave the Packers (13-3) the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs. With that comes a first-round bye — the only one in the conference thanks to the expanded playoff field — and home games between now and the Super Bowl. While the other six NFC playoff teams play next weekend, the Packers are off until the divisional round on either Jan 16 or 17.
“We’re happy that the road to Tampa goes through Lambeau,” said Packers coach Matt LaFleur, who completed his second 13-3 season in as many years at the helm. “But we also understand that there’s a lot in front of us.”
