(Reuters) – A showdown between the Packers and Lions that brings down the curtain on the National Football League’s regular season may offer the most drama, but there is much at stake in Sunday’s final slate of games. The loser may still claim a wild card berth in the playoffs that begin the following weekend, but that depends on results earlier in the day. The Washington Redskins (8-6-1) would claim the conference’s second wild card if they beat the visiting New York Giants (10-5), who are already assured a wild card in the postseason.
