Packers have 3:40 deadline to sell playoff tickets; Driver dies after falling through ice on Mississippi River; More state news
The NFL is giving the Packers until 3:40 p.m. today sell 7,500 remaining tickets for Sunday's playoff game -- or else it might not be shown on TV in eastern and north central Wisconsin.
The league's deadline is often extended in most cases. Coach Mike McCarthy said he does not believe there will be a problem getting the sellout. He predicts that Lambeau Field will be “an incredible environment come Sunday ... these are the games are fans live for.”
