It’s a well-known fact that Packers fans are one of the most passionate and devoted fan bases in the NFL, and they showed that this week.
Green Bay earned the No. 1 seed in the NFC Playoffs with a 13-3 record, taking not only the division, but also the conference by storm. That gave them the opportunity to have the conference run through Lambeau Field, assuming they win out, which is a huge advantage they have over their opposition — especially when factoring in weather.
Not only that, the noise from Packers fans is also a big advantage. When the defense needs a lift, or some help, they’ve always been there. Well, this season, they haven’t been able to, as few games have had fans in the stands.
But Saturday’s game against the Rams in the NFC Divisional playoffs will be a different story, as 6,500 tickets went on sale Tuesday. They weren’t available for long, though, as fans bought them all in only 27 minutes, according to the Green Bay Press Gazette. Tickets are now sold out.
The Packers are currently listed as seven-point favorites in the game, with home-field advantage likely playing more of a role than it has in most NFL matchups this season.
