Linebacker NaVorro Bowman and the San Francisco 49ers are headed back to the playoffs for a third straight year.

The majority of the invitations to the NFL’s holiday party, also known as the playoffs, have now been sent out.

Five of the six spots in the AFC are all set. And thanks to the San Francisco 49ers’ 34-24 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night, three of the six spots in the NFC have now been mailed out.

In the AFC, all four divisions have already been wrapped up. In the other conference, we have yet to crown a champion.

So here is the weekly look at the NFL’s playoff matchups as they stand at this moment. Next Sunday will feature a pair of winner-take-all tilts for the NFC East and NFC North titles.

But that’s next week. And as for all of the playoff clinching scenarios, including those involving ties, check out NFL playoff scenario guru Joe Ferreira and his exceptional breakdowns on CBSSports.com.
