GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The Packers aren't trying to jinx themselves -- they're just trying to be prepared.

Green Bay hasn't clinched a playoff spot yet but the team has already mailed bills for playoff tickets to season ticketholders. As usual, the team is billing season-ticketholders for possible divisional playoff and NFC championship home games.

If any games aren't at home the team will issue refunds.

A Green Bay Press-Gazette report (http://gbpg.net/TVC9Lc ) says playoff ticket prices are set by the NFL and based on normal seat prices. A seat that generally costs $92 would be $121 for a wild-card game, $148 for a divisional playoff and $220 for the NFC championship.

Green Bay package ticketholders are being billed for their regular seats. Any unclaimed seats will be randomly allocated to Milwaukee package ticketholders.
