The suspense surrounding the NFL playoffs is finally over.
Only three teams - Atlanta, Indianapolis and Cincinnati - were locked into their postseason seeding entering the final day of the regular season. After the Redskins won the NFC East on Sunday night, the rest of the field was set.
Minnesota's 37-34 victory over Green Bay secured a wild-card spot for the Vikings and eliminated two teams - NFC North rival Chicago and the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants - from contention.
Losses by the Packers and Houston Texans (to Indianapolis) will force both teams to play first-round games this weekend. Denver (13-3) and New England (12-4) leapfrogged the Texans into the AFC's top two seeds with respective victories over Kansas City and Miami. San Francisco (11-4-1) secured the NFC's No. 2 seed and NFC West title with a 27-13 home win against Arizona, which also relegated Seattle (11-5) to a wild-card berth.
