  • With 75% of the season done, it's time to start discussing the NFC playoffs in depth, looking at the teams schedules, predicting wins and losses etc.

    Lets focus on these teams -

    Minnesota
    Philadelphia
    New Orleans
    Carolina
    LA
    Atlanta
    Seattle

    Week 14

    New Orleans VS Atlanta - Atlanta win
    Minnesota VS Carolina - Carolina win
    Seattle VS Jacksonville - Seattle win
    Philadelphia VS LA - LA win

    That scenario would put the playoff picture as follows -

    1st seed - Philidephia - 10-3
    2nd seed - Minnesota - 10-3
    3rd seed - LA - 10-3
    4th seed - New Orleans - 9-4
    5th seed - Seattle - 9-4
    6th seed - Carolina - 0-4

    outside of playoffs - Atlanta - 8-5

    Week 15

    Green Bay VS Carolina - Carolina win
    Bengals VS Minnesota - Minnesota win
    NY Jets VS New Orleans - New Orleans win
    Philadelphia VS NY Giants - Philadelphia win
    LA VS Seattle - Seattle win
    Atlanta VS Tampa Bay - Atlanta win

    Seeding would now look as follows -

    1st seed - Philidephia - 11-3
    2nd seed - Minnesota - 11-3
    3rd seed - Seattle - 10-4
    4th seed - New Orleans - 10-4
    5th seed - LA - 10-4
    6th seed - Carolina - 10-4

    Outside of the playoffs - Atlanta - 9-5

    Week 16

    Minnesota VS Green Bay - Green Bay win
    Tampa Bay VS Carolina - Carolina win
    Atlanta VS New Orleans - Atlanta win
    LA VS Tennessee - LA win
    Seattle VS Dallas - Seattle win
    Oakland VS Philadelphia - Philadelphia win

    1st seed - Philidephia - 12-3
    2nd seed - Minnesota - 11-4
    3rd seed - Seattle - 11-4
    4th seed - Carolina - 11-4
    5th seed - LA - 11-4
    6th seed - Atlanta - 10-5

    Outside of the playoffs - New Orleans - 10-5

    Week 17

    Carolina VS Atlanta - Atlanta win
    Chicago VS Minnesota - Minnesota win
    Dallas VS Philadelphia - Philadelphia win*
    New Orleans VS Tampa Bay - New Orleans win
    San Fran VS LA - LA Win
    Arizona VS Seattle - Seattle win

    1st seed - Philidephia - 13-3
    2nd seed - Minnesota - 12-4
    3rd seed - Seattle - 12-4
    4th seed - Atlanta - 11-5**
    5th seed - LA - 12-4**
    6th seed - Atlanta - 10-5

    Outside of the playoffs - New Orleans - 10-5

    *IF Dallas can pull the upset off against Philadelphia here, Minnesota slides to the 1st seed, Seattle to the 2nd and Philadelphia to the 3rd

    **I'm fairly certain here that despite LA having the better overall record that a non division winner can only get the 5th or 6th seed, please do correct me if I'm wrong.


    Basically, Seattle can drop one more game and still be in the playoffs, likely the 5th or 6th seed.

    Realistically, the 3rd seed is likely

    With a little bit of luck and winning out a first round bye is still very much in the mix!

    Thoughts, predictions most welcome!
