Week 16 NFC Playoff Picture

  • Print

The NFC isn't nearly as muddled as the AFC but much needs to be settled over the next two Sundays.

In Need of Help

New York Giants (8-6) The Giants are the only team left the NFC that is not currently holding a playoff spot but also has not been eliminated.  New York needs to beat Carolina today to stay alive for the wild card race.  However, a Giants loss and a Packers win eliminates New York.


Controlling Their Destiny

Dallas Cowboys (9-5) With last Saturday's win over New Orleans the Cowboys have set themselves up for not just a wild card birth but the NFC East title as well.  Dallas clinches a wild card birth with a win over Washington and a Giants loss.

Green Bay Packers (9-5) You can put last week's loss behind you because there are three ways the Packers make the playoffs today: a win and a Giants loss or tie, a win and a Dallas loss or a tie and a Giants loss.  Two straight wins puts the Packers in regardless of what happens in the East.


Division Leaders

Arizona Cardinals (9-5) Arizona has clinched the NFC West and can gran a first round bye with two wins and two losses to Philadelphia and Minnesota.

Philadelphia Eagles (10-4) The Eagles have clinched a playoff birth and can win the East with a win and a Dallas loss.  If not, the Eagles would need to beat the Cowboys next week.  A win keeps Philadelphia alive for the #2 seed in the NFC.

Minnesota Vikings (11-3) Minnesota has clinched the NFC North and can clinch a first round bye with a win and a Philadelphia loss or tie or a tie and a Philly loss.

New Orleans Saints (13-1) New Orleans has clinched the NFC South and a first round bye.  The Saints will clinch homefield advantage throughout with a win or a Minnesota loss.
