We've been hearing about must-wins for roughly 11 weeks or so, but now it's serious. The Saints are 5-5, last in the NFC South, and approximately six games out of the wild card race. Not good. So, basically, yes, they need to win out.
The Packers are also 5-5, but just one game back of the division-leading Bears and Vikings. And while a loss tonight won't end their playoff hopes, Aaron Rodgers has no intentions of letting that happen on his watch. It would give Brett Favre way too much enjoyment.
Whatever happens, we'll be live-blogging it up. Party starts at 8:20-ish.
