Possible seeding scenarios in the NFC

NFC Playoff Scenarios

Six of eight possible Week 17 scenarios would leave the Cardinals facing the Packers in a wild-card playoff game at University of Phoenix Stadium. It's still possible for Arizona to grab the second or third seed, however. The chart shows possible seeding implications from the three games with playoff implications in the NFC: Giants-Vikings, Packers-Cardinals and Eagles-Cowboys. I have shaded the Cardinals in red and their corresponding wild-card opponent in blue. Arizona would have a bye in the wild-card round as the second seed.
