The last week of the regular season in the NFL is upon us and the playoff scenarios are unfolding at warp speed. The variety is mind boggling and there are many ways that the post season can shape up based on the outcome of the games this weekend. NFC teams that have already clinched are the Falcons, who also have home field advantage, the Packers, the Seahawks, and the 49ers. The Packers play the Vikings on Sunday and their playoff scenarios are as follows. The Packers clinch a first round bye with a Packers win, a Packers tie AND a 49ers loss or tie, or a 49ers loss AND Seahawks loss or tie. The 49ers can clinch the NFC West with a 49ers win or tie, or a Seahawks loss or tie. The 49ers can clinch a first round bye with a 49ers win AND a Packers loss or tie or a 49ers tie and a Packers loss. The 49ers play the Cardinals on Sunday. The Seahawks play the Rams on Sunday and they can clinch the NFC West with a Seahawks win AND a 49ers loss. The Seahawks can clinch a first round bye with a Seahawks win AND a 49ers loss AND a Packers loss. The Redskins play the Cowboys Sunday night in what may be one of the biggest games of the year, even including the upcoming post season. The Redskins can clinch the NFC East with a Redskins win or tie. They can clinch a playoff spot with a Bears loss AND a Vikings loss. The Cowboys can clinch the NFC East with just a win. The Giants play the Eagles on Sunday and the Giants can get a playoff spot with a Giants win AND a Cowboys loss or tie AND a Bears loss AND a Vikings loss. The Vikings play the Packers on Sunday and the Vikings can get a playoff spot with a Vikings win or a Vikings win AND a Bears loss or tie or a Cowboys loss or tie AND a Bears loss AND a Giants loss or tie. The Bears play the Lions on Sunday and can get a playoff spot with a Bears win AND a Vikings loss or tie or a Bears tie AND a Vikings loss or tie. The NFC scenarios are many and many of the games on Sunday are uncertain as to who the winner will be. Redskins/Cowboys, Giants/Eagles, Vikings/Packers maybe even Bears/Lions are in the pile of either team could win. The 49ers and Seahawks SHOULD both win their games but their post season seeding depends on what other teams do. Many teams are trying to get in but every one of them need help to do it. Sunday is going to be a BIG day in the NFC.
