NFC playoff picture

  • Print

Here's where we stand with two weeks left:

1. Atlanta

2. San Francisco

3. Green Bay

4. Washington

5. Seattle

6. Minnesota

 

A couple of notes from the above playoff seedings: while Minnesota would be in if the season ended today the Vikings do not control their own destiny.  So winning out won't be enough.  Meanwhile the Giants, who would be out of the postseason if the season ended now, do in fact control their own destiny.  This is because the Giants have a superior conference record over the Vikings (this time of year it's always wise to brush up on your tiebreakers.)

 

The Packers have nailed down the NFC North but their seeding is up in the air.  They can end up anywhere in the top four though the number three appears to be the most likely seed.  There will be plenty of scoreboard watching again this weekend so here's a list of NFC games with playoff implications:

Saturday

Atlanta at Detroit-the Falcons can wrap up homefield advantage with a win

Sunday 12 p.m.

Tennessee at Green Bay-a win keeps the Packers alive for a first round bye

Minnesota at Houston-the Texans can wrap up the #1 AFC seed with a win

Washington at Philadelphia-it's a 3 way race in the East but Redskins win division with two wins

New Orleans at Dallas-like the Redskins, Dallas clinches the East with two wins

Sunday 3:25 p.m.

NY Giants at Baltimore-the Giants can play their way into the postseason; Ravens clinch AFC North with a win

Chicago at Arizona-it'll take a Festivus miracle for the Bears to make the playoffs

Sunday 7:20 p.m.

San Francisco at Seattle-the 49ers win the West with a win; Seahawks clinch a playoff birth if they win
