Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy says his football team needs to win the last four games to have a shot at the playoffs.
The Packers were blown out, 40-10, by the Detroit Lions, on Thanksgiving and has gone winless in their past five games (0-4-1).
"I would think so, yes," McCarthy said.
The Packers are now 5-6-1 with Aaron Rodgers still sidelined with a broken collarbone.
"Oh, we're in a hole," McCarthy said. "We felt like we were in the hole going into the Detroit game. We've got two division losses and a tie. That's not where you want to be."
Rodgers could possibly return Dec. 8 against the Atlanta Falcons.
He's resumed thrown and is cleared to practice on a limited basis.
"I just know when we came off the field Wednesday that he wasn't ready to play yet," McCarthy said. "So, we'll see how the testing goes. But it needs to be the right thing. I know he wants to play, I know he's trying to gear up each and every week to play, but we'll see what happens next week."
