Four of the six playoff spots are set, but the NFC playoffs won't be final until the very last game on Sunday.
What's still up for grabs in the NFC?
1. NFC East
The Dallas Cowboys lost in overtime to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, but the Baltimore Ravens did them a favor by defeating the New York Giants.
Now Dallas and Washington will compete for the division championship Sunday night. It's simple; whoever wins Sunday's game will be crowned NFC East champions.
And whoever wins that game will be the No. 4 seed in the NFC, hosting either Seattle or San Francisco in the first round of the playoffs.
2. NFC West
The Seahawks dominated the San Francisco 49ers this past week. Frankly, it wasn't even close.
But the 49ers still control their own destiny heading into the final week of the regular season. If they beat the struggling Arizona Cardinals, they'll earn at least the No. 3 seed in the NFC. San Francisco is still in position to be the No. 2 seed in the NFC if Green Bay loses to Minnesota.
However, if the 49ers are upset by Arizona, then Seattle could sneak up from behind them and steal the NFC West title. Things are looking very interesting out west.
3. Final Wild Card
Either San Francisco or Seattle will win the NFC West. Whichever team falls short will certainly be the No. 5 seed in the NFC.
But beyond that, the race for the NFC's final wild-card spot is wide open.
The Minnesota Vikings control their own destiny. If Minnesota defeats Green Bay, the Vikings are the No. 6 seed no matter what. But the Packers will be motivated, as they're now in control of the No. 2 seed in the NFC.
If Minnesota loses, Chicago would be next in line for the No. 6 seed. If the Bears defeat the Detroit Lions, the Bears will finish 10-6 and earn the No. 6 seed in the NFC. But if they lose, things will get very interesting.
Although the New York Giants' playoff hopes took a hit on Sunday, they're still in playoff contention. The Giants need a win over the Eagles and losses by Seattle, Minnesota and Chicago to crack the postseason. Otherwise, it looks like there will be a new Super Bowl champion this year.
