MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Green Bay Packers’ path to the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs is straightforward. The Packers earn the top seed if they win their final three regular-season games.

That would give them the opportunity to earn a Super Bowl berth without leaving Lambeau Field. That’s a tantalizing possibility for a franchise that has lost on the road in three of the past six NFC championship games.

The NFC North champion Packers will try to take one more step toward earning that No. 1 seed when they host the slumping Carolina Panthers on Saturday night.

The Packers share the NFC’s best record with New Orleans and own a tiebreaker advantage over the Saints. Carolina has lost seven of its last eight games.

The game kicks off at 7:15 p.m. and will be shown on NFL Network.

ADAMS’ TD STREAK

Wide receiver Davante Adams has produced a touchdown catch in each of his past eight games, but says he isn’t thinking much about how long he can keep that streak going.

He has long-range goals in mind instead.

Adams says that “what drives me is getting the Super Bowl and ultimately trying to be the best receiver to play this game.”

Adams has 14 touchdown catches this season to tie Kansas City’s Tyreek Hill for the NFL lead.
