Packers playoff tickets still available
GREEN BAY - About 12,000 tickets are available for a potential playoff game at Lambeau Field.
The Packers could host a wild-card or divisional round game, though the former is more likely. Wild-card games are Jan. 7-8. Divisional round games are Jan. 14-15.
The team's chances of making the playoffs improved with Sunday's 30-27 victory over the Chicago Bears, leaving the Packers one game behind Detroit and one game ahead of Minnesota with two games remaining. The Lions are 9-5, the Packers 8-6 and the Vikings are 7-7. The Lions play the Cowboys (12-2) in Dallas and the Packers at Ford Field in Detroit. The Packers play the Vikings and Lions, and the Vikings play the Packers and the Bears (3-11).
Any scenario that ends up with Green Bay tied for first place with either the Lions or with both the Lions and the Vikings would result in the Packers winning the division. In the first case, they would have defeated Detroit twice, in the second they would have a 4-2 division record and the other two would be 3-3.
Tickets went on sale to the general public Friday, when 14,000 were available. The Packers said 12,000 remained at midday Monday.
A maximum of six tickets per account can be bought. Prices range from $114 to $145.
If the Packers do not host a playoff game, full refunds will be given.
