The Green Bay Packers could clinch the coveted No. 1 seed in the NFC, and it mostly hinges on their performances in the remaining two games of the 2019 NFL regular season.

If the Packers win out with victories over the Vikings and Lions, they only need the Seahawks to beat the 49ers and they'll have the No. 1 seed and a first-round bye.

Of course, that's far from a given. While the Packers have been on a roll lately, the Vikings could prove to be a formidable opponent tomorrow during Monday Night Football, even without Dalvin Cook. If Kirk Cousins is able to utilize Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs properly, the Packers defense is going to have a long night.

Then there's the Seahawks, who have lost their top three running backs for the season due to injuries. They might still have Russell Wilson to lead the way, but without any semblance of a running game, the 49ers will be able to put a lot more pressure on Wilson and make it difficult for the Seahawks to pull off a win.

We'll see what happens tomorrow, as well as in an action-packed Week 17, but the Packers will do their absolute best to simplify their path to another Super Bowl.
