“We have momentum going for us, particularly what we’ve done over the last nine weeks, 10 weeks,” coach Mike McCarthy said of Green Bay’s nine wins in the last 10 games. “So we wanted to take the next step as a football team and I felt we were able to accomplish that today.”
The 49ers (10-4-1) will win the NFC West by beating Arizona next weekend. Seattle (10-5) earned at least a wild-card spot and finishes at home against St. Louis.
On Saturday night, NFC South winner Atlanta won 31-18 at Detroit to clinch home-field advantage throughout the conference playoffs.
Minnesota (9-6), Chicago (9-6), the New York Giants (8-7) and Washington could wind up with the final NFC wild card. Dallas can’t get a wild card.
