The Green Bay Packers had a chance to remain on the heels of the Arizona Cardinals in the chase for home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs, but with a 21-13 loss to the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, N.Y., Sunday, their position is vastly different.

For starters, thanks to the Detroit Lions comeback from a 14-0 deficit to beat the Minnesota Vikings 16-14, the Packers aren’t even leading the NFC North anymore.

Instead, the two teams are each 10-4, with Detroit holding the tiebreaker with its head-to-head win at Ford Field on Sept. 21.

That pushes the Packers all the way down to the sixth and final playoff spot, as it loses the head-to-head tiebreaker with the Seattle Seahawks—also 10-4—in the wild-card hunt because of Seattle’s victory on Sept. 4.

So what went wrong?

Shorter list: What didn’t go wrong?

The Packers were able to find the stadium and get to the field with all of their equipment on. From there, it sort of cascaded downhill fast.

But seriously, we’ll try to break it down in a rational way.
