Updated NFL playoff picture

With two weeks to play here's the current seeding for the NFL playoffs:

1. Seattle* (12-2)
2. New Orleans (10-4)
3. Philadelphia (8-6)
4. Chicago (8-6)
5. Carolina (10-4)
6. San Francisco (10-4)

1. Denver* (11-3)
2. New England (10-4)
3. Cincinnati (9-5)
4. Indianapolis** (9-5)
5. Kansas City* (11-3)
6. Baltimore (8-6)

*-clinched playoff birth
**-clinched division

It's interesting to note how wide open the entire NFC field is outside of Seattle.  The Seahawks are a win away from clinching the West but the other three division races are unsettled and six teams control their destiny in those three divisions.  The Chicago-Philadelphia and New Orleans-Carolina Week 16 matchups will help to add clarity.


The AFC race is a little clearer though the final wild card spot and seeding is still in doubt.  Both Cincinnati and Baltimore control their destiny in the AFC North while in the East Miami can still factor in either as a division winner or a wild card.  A lot is riding on the West as the winner will likely have a first round bye while second place will be forced to go on the road as a wild card.  Indianapolis-Kansas City and New England-Baltimore are two marquee matchups this week.
