I would not call surrendering 400 yards to Brady domination.

NFC:

#1 ATL (13-2) - Everything clinched
#2 GB (11-4) - Clinched NFC North
#3 SF (10-4-1) - Clinched playoff berth
#4 WSH (9-6) - Win and they clinch NFC East / also get in as WC if Bears and Vikings lose
#5 SEA (10-5) [WC 1] - Clinched playoff berth
#6 MIN (9-6) [WC 2] - Win and they are in

IN THE HUNT:

CHI (9-6) - Win+Vikings loss and they clinch 6th seed.
DAL (8-7) - Win and they clinch NFC East.
NYG (8-7) - Need a win, Redskins win, Bears loss and Vikings loss to clinch 6th seed.

Green Bay can finish 2nd or 3rd. They win and they get the 2nd seed.
San Francisco needs a win and a GB loss to finish 2nd.
If the 49ers lose, the Seahawks win and the Packers lose, the Seahawks are the #2 seed.

AFC:

#1 HOU (12-3) - Clinched AFC South
#2 DEN (12-3) - Clinched AFC West
#3 NE (11-4) - Clinched AFC East
#4 BAL (10-5) - Clinched AFC North
#5 IND (10-5) [WC 1] - Clinched 5th seed
#6 CIN (9-6) [WC 2] - Clinched 6th seed

Houston can finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd.
Denver can finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd.
New England can finish 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th.
Baltimore can finish 3rd or 4th.

SF isn't losing at home to Arizona. Just not happening.

Stranger things have happened. Without two of their better receivers and Kaepernick faling back to earth they may choke the division away, but I wouldn't bet on it either.

Gonna be a big Colts and Chiefs () fan this coming week. Those one and two point losses are gonna really bite the Pats in the ass. Still hard to believe that the Texans could miss out on a first round bye.

The Seahawks look unstoppable. Getting hot at the right time. Just like last year's LA Kings.

The Seahawks will not get a home game in the playoffs and have struggled on the road.

Hot at the moment though and have won their last two away.

You never know what a rookie will do in his first playoff game.

He could completely freeze up. But he could dominate, that's the thing.

I'm not putting them down for anything because I have no idea what Wilson will do, they have to prove themselves one game at a time. They haven't won anything yet.

Well. I was very impressed by the Hawks last night. I had not watched them play since a few pre-season games where Wilson was just emerging. After watching them last night I have to say I will be pulling for them in the playoffs this year.

I think the Seahawks are the team to beat in the NFC right now too. Wilson vs RGIII would be one hell of a game to watch.

It's even harder to understand looking back. How the hell did NE lose at home to the Cards? They're the #1 seed if they won that game. First round bye, home field throughout. Instead they're going to be the #3 seed, play a wildcard game, and then they'll likely have to win back to back road games against juggernaut teams.

If Seahawks get a high seed they'll be awfully tough to beat. No one wants to play them at home and they are hot at the right time of the year.

Well they won't so all of that is moot. 49ers aren't losing to the Cards.

Agree on Niners.

If Vikings beat Packers, Seattle can get a #3 seed.

No they can't because they won't be winning the division.

Seattle will most likely be the 5th seed and have to win 3 road games to reach the Super Bowl.

After the Patriots beat the Texans, they were the team to beat. After the 49ers beat the Patriots, they were the best team. Apparently now the Seahawks are on top.

Who will be "the team to beat" after next week?

Ask the refs. Phantom holding call on Gronk negated Danny Woodhead's winning TD. Gostkowski missed 2 FG and Hernandez got hurt in the first half.

I believe we get the bye if Houston loses and we beat the Dolphins.

Who cares. #1 seed is what matters.

Now the Patriots will likely have to go into Denver and win. That is going to be very tough.

Pretty sure most consider the Broncos the team to beat right now.
