The Packers' magic number to clinch home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs remains at one. That is, one win or tie by the Packers, or one loss or tie by the San Francisco 49ers will ensure the Packers will play all playoff games at Lambeau Field leading up to the Super Bowl. If the Packers lose out and finish 13-3, while the 49ers win out to finish 13-3, San Francisco would win the tiebreaker based on a better record against common opponents.
