The Green Bay Packers (7-6-1) took care of business in remarkable fashion on Sunday, coming back from a 23-point deficit that tied for the largest in franchise history. Now they could use some help.
On Monday Night Football, the Detroit Lions host the Baltimore Ravens. And at 7-6, the Lions are a half game ahead of the Packers in the division standings.
Green Bay does not control its own destiny. They need the Lions to lose at least once before the end of the season in order to capture the NFC North crown. Although they don't necessarily need the Lions to lose on Monday evening, they would sure benefit from a Detroit defeat.
With a win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, the Chicago Bears are also ahead of the Packers in the division standings, but the Packers control their own fate thanks to a date with the Bears in the season finale.
Kickoff is at 7:40 p.m. CT on ESPN.
A quartet of Packers players will be at Bay Park Square mall in Green Bay on Monday evening at 6:00 p.m. to ring bells for the Salvation Army, signing autographs in exchange for donations.

These four are just the latest pair of players to ring bells, an event that occurred on Mondays for an entire month during the holiday season.
