Aaron Rodgers isn't giving up on the Green Bay Packers reaching the playoffs this season.

"You can crunch the numbers there," Rodgers said. "I can tell you 8-7-1 won't get in, though. I don't think.

"We are where we're at right now record-wise. We're going to need some help from some teams and then we've got to take care of our own business, you know? We're going to have to find a way to win a game on the road. We're 0-6 on the road. So we just got to go back home, get some rest, beat Arizona ... and then come back and beat Atlanta ... then go to Chicago, a place we've won a number of times, beat them ... go to New York around Christmas, beat them ...and then come home against Detroit, beat them. Get a little help."

Rodgers also said that his performance has to be better.

"I know I've got to play better," he said. "But I will. And we'll put ourselves in position."
