A.J. Dillon and the Packers would clinch the top seed in the NFC with a win over the Vikings tonight.

The NFC route to Super Bowl LVI in Inglewood, Calif., is one step closer to going through Lambeau Field. 

Due to Arizona's 25-22 upset victory at Dallas on Sunday afternoon, the Green Bay Packers can clinch the top seed, a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs with a victory over the visiting Minnesota Vikings at 7:20 p.m. Sunday on NBC. 

The Packers own the NFC's top record at 12-3 heading into Sunday night's game. The Cowboys fell to 11-5.

If the Packers lose, Green Bay would have to win at Detroit next week or get another Cowboys loss to clinch. 

Without starting quarterback Kirk Cousins, the Vikings (7-8) need a victory tonight to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.
