Week 17 NFC Playoff Picture

  • Print

UPDATE Minnesota has beaten New York 44-7, eliminating Arizona and Dallas from getting the #2 seed.


The six playoff teams are set but five of the six seeds are up in the air coming into the final Sunday of the season.


Wild Card Teams

Dallas Cowboys (10-5) Dallas has a shot at not only the NFC East but the #2 seed as well.  Currently the Cowboys hold the last playoff spot but a win over Philadelphia delivers the NFC East to the Cowboys.  A Dallas win and losses to Arizona and Minnesota means the Cowboys get the first round bye.

Green Bay Packers (10-5) The Packers are a wild card team but will they be the #5 or the #6?  It will depend on whether of not the Packers beat Arizona and how the NFC East shakes out.


Division Leaders

Arizona Cardinals (10-5) The Cardinals have clinched the NFC West and will clinch a first round bye with a win over Green Bay and losses to Minnesota and Philadelphia.

Minnesota Vikings (11-4) Minnesota has won the NFC North and get a first round bye with a win and a Philadelphia loss.

Philadelphia Eagles (11-4) Philly holds the lead in the NFC East and a win over Dallas means a division title and a first round bye.  If the Eagles lose they will be a wild card team.

New Orleans Saints (13-2) The Saints have wrapped up the NFC South and homefield advantage throughout the playoffs.
