Seahawks barely beat the lowly 49ers. They're not invincible. They have a weak schedule, but I think they're gonna toss in a few L's on the way. Chicago is the team is watch. Carolina is a paper tiger. Dallas MUST win the division in order to get into the playoffs. There's no guaranteed wildcard spot for the runner up. If the playoffs were to start today: HFA: Seattle (8-2) Division winners: Dallas, Carolina, Chicago (7-3) Wildcards: NY Giants, Tampa Bay (7-3) Maybes: Atlanta (6-4) Using the tie-breaker for the 2nd bye team, Chicago get's the bye with no losses within their division. Granted, 6 more games to play, and this scene could change week to week ... but we still need to literally win out to complete this saga. At most we have 1 more loss and still can win the NFCE, and 2 more losses for a Wild Card spot. A 10-6 record does not guarantee us anything.
