But there is one significant change to the NFL season starting right away, which is the addition of one more playoff team in each conference.

This will have a big impact on the seeding in each conference, and it would have changed the Green Bay Packers ‘ season in 2019 had the format been used then.

For example, the Packers still couldn’t have met the 49ers until the NFC Championship Game as a lower seed would play the 49ers in the divisional round.

The Packers’ best bet to return to the Super Bowl is to secure the number one seed.

This was true prior to the new CBA being agreed, but the advantage the top seed has is even greater now.
