    There will be just one team in each conference that earns a bye.

    And the Green Bay Packers would love nothing more than to be that team.

    When the NFL moved to seven playoff teams per conference in 2020, it meant that only the top seed in each conference would receive a bye.

    Green Bay earned the top seed and a bye in 2020, and the Packers remain poised to capture that top-seed again in 2021.

    Green Bay defeated the Los Angeles Rams, 36-25, on Sunday and improved to 9-3 overall. The Packers are just ½-game behind top-seeded Arizona (9-2) and have a ½-game lead over third-seeded Tampa Bay.

    “I like where we're at. I like our football team,” Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. “This is shaping up — we got some more home games down the stretch. These are the type of winter games where we can and have effectively thrown the football. We've controlled the clock for almost 40 minutes.

    “This is what makes it so difficult to play in Lambeau, so we gotta win our division first, secure that home playoff game and then we have the tiebreaker over Arizona, so we're right on their heels right now.”

    Here’s a look at the teams fighting for the No. 1 seed and their remaining schedules:

    1.   Arizona (9-2)

    Schedule: at Chicago, vs. Los Angeles Rams, at Detroit, vs. Indianapolis, at Dallas, vs. Seattle

    Opponent’s combined record: 27-38-1

    Opponent’s winning percentage: .417.

    Analysis: The Cardinals are tied with Green Bay for the easiest remaining schedule among teams fighting for the top seed. Arizona had a bye this week and is expected to get quarterback Kyler Murray back for the stretch run.

    2.   Green Bay (9-3)

    Schedule: vs. Chicago, at Baltimore, vs. Cleveland, vs. Minnesota, at Detroit

    Opponent’s combined record: 22-31-1

    Opponent’s winning percentage: .417

    Analysis: Green Bay, which has been battered and bruised this season, has a bye in Week 13 to get healthy. The Packers’ schedule after that is certainly manageable, with three of the five games at home. Green Bay also holds the head-to-head advantage over Arizona thanks to a 24-21 win over the Cardinals last month.

    3.

    Tampa Bay (8-3)

    Schedule: at Atlanta, vs. Buffalo, vs. New Orleans, at Carolina, at New York Jets, vs. Carolina

    Opponent’s combined record: 30-38

    Opponent’s winning percentage: .441

    Analysis: The defending Super Bowl champions won their second straight game Sunday and appear poised to go on a run. Only one of Tampa Bay’s final six foes currently have a winning record (Buffalo).

    4.   Dallas (7-4)

    Schedule: at New Orleans, at Washington, at New York Giants, vs. Washington, vs. Arizona, at Philadelphia

    Opponent’s combined record: 31-34

    Opponent’s winning percentage: .477

    Analysis: The Cowboys are struggling and have lost two straight games. But Dallas has a chance to close with a bang. Just one of the Cowboys’ final six games is against a team with a winning record. That could help Dallas make a run at the top spot and homefield advantage.

    5.   Los Angeles Rams (7-4)

    Schedule: vs. Jacksonville, at Arizona, vs. Seattle, at Minnesota, at Baltimore, vs. San Francisco

    Opponent’s combined record: 32-32

    Opponent’s winning percentage: .500

    Analysis: The Rams still must face the current No. 1 seeds in the NFC (Arizona) and AFC (Baltimore).
