Packers No. 6 seed in NFC playoff race

If the playoffs began today, the Packers would qualify as the No. 6 seed in the NFC. The Packers and Bears are deadlocked atop the NFC North with 7-3 records, but Chicago currently holds the tiebreaker based on their victory over the Packers earlier this season. The two teams meet again in the season finale Jan. 2 at Lambeau Field. Of the NFC playoff contenders, the Bears have the toughest remaining schedule with their opponents having a collective 35-25 record. The Packers and Buccaneers are tied for the second-toughest schedule, with opponents having collective 34-26 records. There should be a wild scramble over the final six weeks of the season for six playoff berths, and one thing seems guaranteed: some deserving NFC teams -- like the Giants, Buccaneers or even the Packers -- will be watching the playoffs at home. That's because the NFC West might have the worst collection of teams in the history of the league. Seattle currently leads the division at 5-5, followed by St. Louis at 4-6, and San Francisco and Arizona at 3-7. It's a very real possibility that the winner of that division will have a losing record. In fact, it's not out of the realm of possibility that a 6-10 mark could win the NFC Worst, er West. NFC PLAYOFF RACE (Conference seedings) 1. FALCONS 8-2 2. EAGLES 7-3 3. BEARS 7-3 4.
