NFL Playoffs Schedule: Where to Watch, Live Stream Seattle Seahawks vs. Green Bay Packers in NFC Divisional Round

The divisional round of the NFL playoffs ends in Wisconsin on Sunday night, as the Green Bay Packers host the Seattle Seahawks at Lambeau Field.

The final game of the round is also the one with the smallest spread, with the Packers a four-point favorite over the Seahawks.

There is little to choose between Green Bay and Seattle, a balance that is emphatically displayed by both teams' regular-season records. The Packers won seven of their eight regular-season games at home this year—the joint-most in the NFL along with the Baltimore Ravens—while the Seahawks have exactly the same record on the road.

Green Bay holds a 2-1 advantage in the all-time series in the playoffs, courtesy of defeating the Seahawks in 2003 and at a snowy Lambeau Field four years later.

The most recent meeting, however, has less happy memories for the Packers, who squandered a 16-point halftime lead to lose in overtime in the NFC Championship Game in 2014.

Time will tell whether Sunday's installment of the rivalry will provide another classic, but on paper at least all the ingredients are in place for a fascinating matchup.

Of the eight teams left in the NFL playoffs, Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson are the only remaining starting quarterbacks who have won Super Bowls. They rank fifth and sixth, respectively, in postseason passer efficiency, among quarterbacks with minimum 100 attempts.

Rodgers, who needs four touchdowns to tie Peyton Manning for the fourth-most career postseason touchdown passes in NFL history, is well aware the Packers have the chance to move a step closer to a first Super Bowl title since 2009.

"We're two games away from being able to compete for that," he told ESPN.

"I'm 36, I know what this is all about. This is an important opportunity for us. I feel like I've got a lot of really good years left, but you never know."

From a coaching standpoint, however, the Seahawks and the Packers sit at opposite ends of the spectrum.

Pete Carroll has taken Seattle to the playoffs eight times in 10 seasons and takes a 10-6 postseason record into the divisional round, while his Green Bay counterpart Matt LaFleur makes his playoff debut.

In his first season as head coach, the 40-year-old became just one of five head coaches in league history to win at least 13 games in a debut campaign.

The Packers won the NFC North for the first time since 2016 and as this graphic provided by Statista shows, they arrive into the playoffs with the No. 2 seed.

The Seahawks, meanwhile, dropped from No. 1 to No. 5 in Week 17 after losing at home to the San Francisco 49ers, which meant they had to take on the Philadelphia Eagles in the wild-card round last week.

While the Seahawks came through their first road trip of the postseason with a 17-9 win, the lack of rest could count against a team that has been beset by injuries this season.

The Seahawks lost running backs Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise for the season in Week 16 with a hip injury and a broken arm respectively, just two weeks after Rashaad Penny, who served as Carson back-up this season, tore his ACL, as did linebacker Mychal Kendricks.

Carroll, however, insisted keeping his team mentally grounded was more challenging than replacing injured players.

"The challenge really is the managing the players' mentality," he told reporters Wednesday. "That's the challenge to it. Keeping them balanced and clear thinking and not distracted by all the hoopla at the front of it and all that. There's such a buildup when you go to each game. Each week is just so much fun because it's so intense as you move through it that it's managing that."
