GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- After a blowout victory over the New York Giants, the Green Bay Packers' simplest path to the playoffs is clear: beat the rival Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field on Sunday and they're in.
The Packers also could make the playoffs if they lose to the Bears but have other circumstances fall in their favor. Coach Mike McCarthy certainly doesn't want his players thinking that way.
McCarthy insists he's not even aware of the other potential playoff scenarios beyond the Packers winning their way in, saying nothing matters beyond his team getting its 10th win of the season.
