The Green Bay Packers weren’t always perfect, but they were good enough to demolish their division-rival Minnesota Vikings 37-10 on Sunday Night Football.

The victory ensured the Packers locked up the NFC’s top seed following the Dallas Cowboys loss earlier in the day and made next week’s contest against the Detroit Lions meaningless. Meanwhile, Minnesota was officially eliminated from playoff contention with the loss.

With just one game remaining before the playoffs begin, here are eight observations from the Packers’ dominant victory over the Vikings.

Here are eight observations and takeaways from the Green Bay Packers’ victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Night Football.

Observations from Packers victory over Vikings: Clinch Number 1 seed

Green Bay clinched the number 1 seed for the second straight season and a first-round bye for the third straight under head coach Matt LaFleur.
