With only one week left in the NFL regular season, a lot remains undecided before playoff time. While the majority of question marks revolve around seeding in both the AFC and NFC, there is still a couple of very meaningful games left to be played.
For those of you looking for an early playoff-like atmosphere, tune into the Washington Redskins/Dallas Cowboys game on Sunday. The winner of said matchup gets the NFC East crown while the loser is more than likely entering the offseason a little sooner than hoped.
Below is a complete list of what is at stake for all the potential playoff teams and those that have already punched their ticket.
Atlanta Falcons (13-2): Have locked up the No. 1 seed in the NFC and have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Green Bay Packers (11-4): Will stay in the No. 2 seed with a win against the Vikings on Sunday. A loss coupled with a 49ers win, will push the Packers into the No. 3 seed.
San Francisco 49ers (10-4-1): The 49ers can end up as high as the No. 2 seed and as low as the No. 5 seed depending on Sunday's outcome. A San Francisco win and a Packers loss will move the team into the No. 2 spot. A San Francisco loss and a Seahawks win would drop the 49ers into the No. 5 seed.
Washington Redskins (9-6): Washington can clinch the NFC East with a win against Dallas on Sunday. If they lose, they can still grab the No. 6 seed with a Vikings and Bears loss on Sunday.
Dallas Cowboys (8-7): Can clinch the NFC East with a win against the Redskins on Sunday. Dallas cannot make the playoffs via the wild card.
Seattle Seahawks (10-5): The Seahawks can claim the NFC West with a win and a San Francisco loss. Seattle already has at least the No. 5 seed locked up.
Minnesota Vikings (9-6): Minnesota would clinch the No. 6 seed with a win against the Packers on Sunday. If they lose, Minnesota could still make the playoffs if the Bears, Giants and Cowboys all lose on Sunday as well.
Chicago Bears (9-6): Chicago would clinch the No. 6 seed with a win and a Vikings loss. A Chicago loss eliminates them from the playoffs.
New York Giants (9-7): The Giants can clinch the No. 6 seed with a win and a Vikings, Bears and Cowboys loss on Sunday.
Houston Texans (12-3): Houston can lock up the No. 1 seed with a win against the Colts or a loss by both the Broncos and Patriots. They can fall to the No. 3 seed with a loss and a Broncos and Pats win on Sunday.
Denver Broncos (12-3): Denver would become the No. 1 seed with a win and a Texans loss. They would fall to the No. 3 seed with a loss and a Patriots win on Sunday.
New England Patriots (11-4): New England would become the No. 1 seed with a win and a Denver and Houston loss on Sunday. The Patriots would drop to the No. 4 seed with a loss to the Dolphins, and a Ravens win against the Bengals on Sunday.
Baltimore Ravens (10-5): Baltimore can move up to the No. 3 seed with a win and a Patriots loss. They can not go lower than the No. 4 seed.
Indianapolis Colts (10-5)/Cincinnati Bengals (9-6): Neither team can move up or down and have the No.5 and No. 6 seeds already locked up.
