#Packers still had 5,500 playoff tickets to sell as of 10 am. CT. Sellout deadline is 3:40 pm CT. Packers may ask NFL to extend deadline.

The Green Bay Packers are quickly approaching the blackout deadline with a number of unsold tickets. While the game at Lambeau Field will most certainly be cold and television is great, this weather is not unusual for this time of year. It is a little perplexing that the game is not sold out, considering the incredible waiting list they have for season tickets.
The Packers did not exactly storm into the playoffs at 8-7-1, but they have Aaron Rodgers back and healthy along with Eddie Lacy running the football. There seems to be a sense that maybe the Packers are not going to do go far, which might be why fans are not as enthusiastic as maybe they normally would be, but the 6th seed in the playoffs has been able to win the Super Bowl in the past. The Packers are not the only team having trouble selling out a playoff game, which is a concerning trend for the NFL.
