NFL playoff picture: Seahawks, Packers lead wild NFC race; Bills clinch AFC playoff spot in Week 15

The NFC playoff race, in terms of seeding, is going to be insane. Right now we basically know five of the six teams who will be in the postseason, barring some kind of miracle from the Rams, who fell to 8-6 on Sunday. The sixth team will either be the Eagles or the Cowboys
And how those five teams shake out in terms of seeding is anyone's guess. The Cowboys or Eagles are locked into the fourth spot. Whoever comes out of the NFC East will host a wild-card game, either as a .500 team or a barely-above .500 team. 
Seattle is currently No. 1, but they could easily fall to No. 5. Green Bay is No. 2, but they could easily drop to sixth! The Saints are locked into no worse than third overall in the NFC and will move up to the top overall seed if the beat the Colts on Monday by virtue of their head-to-head win over the Seahawks
Four teams can still secure the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC, and all four of those teams can still finish with the fifth seed. It could be a wild race to the finish.
