GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers aren't perfect, especially on offense and special teams. But as far as the standings are concerned, they've been untouchable for a month and are streaking toward the playoffs.
With Sunday's victory at Chicago, the Packers have won five straight games to climb to 9-4. That puts them on top of the NFC wild card standings, and just one more win in their last three games might be enough to punch their ticket to the postseason.
But it wasn't so long ago that the Packers were sitting at 4-4, and coach Mike McCarthy isn't letting them take anything for granted. McCarthy said Monday that the Packers don't have any breathing room heading into Sunday's game at Pittsburgh.
