The Green Bay Packers will have next weekend off.

Green Bay clinched a first-round bye in the playoffs on Sunday with a 23-20 win over the Detroit Lions.

The Packers (13-3) own the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye for the first time since the 2014 postseason after the San Francisco 49ers' dramatic 26-21 win over the Seattle Seahawks. The 49ers are now the conference's No. 1 seed.

Green Bay clinched the NFC North last week with a win over the Minnesota Vikings.
