This may have been the best overall performance by a Packers team since at least 2014. It's the biggest blowout win for Green Bay since then.

The Packers rise to 7-6, but still need a loss by the Detroit Lions at the New York Giants or the Dallas Cowboys in the next two weeks to control their playoff destiny.

Pregame updates

Pregame story

Often, the toughest of tests reveals the true substance of a person, or in this case, a team.

Two questions may be answered about the substance of the injured but somewhat-resurgent Green Bay Packers when they face the Seattle Seahawks today.

The first: Are they truly a playoff contender? The simple answer on the scoreboard and its affect on the standings may play a lot into whether that can be reality.

If the Packers win today, all that will be needed for them to control their destiny in the NFC North race will be a loss by the Detroit Lions to Chicago today, the New York Giants on the road next week or the Dallas Cowboys Christmas weekend (also on the road).

The second: Are they the type of team that can truly beat a contender?

Of the Packers' six wins, three have come against playoff contenders: NFC North leading Detroit, the solid wild card contending New York Giants and the AFC South-leading Houston Texans.

But the Seattle Seahawks are a different animal, a team that truly can beat anyone, anywhere, anytime, a true Super Bowl contender.

Beat Seattle today, and they will show they can again rise to that category, one the Packers have called their own for most of the last seven years.

A lot will be revealed about the Green Bay Packers today on the again-frozen tundra of Lambeau Field.

Stay tuned.
