It is. To even be in the discussion, the Rams need to run the table. That would include a win over the Seahawks in the season finale. But if that were the Hawks' only loss, that would still put them at a 10-6 finish. So the Rams need one of the Bills or 49ers to knock the Seahawks down a peg. Even in that scenario, the Rams have a couple other teams in front of them in line for a playoff spot. But they are not out just yet as long as they can keep winning.

The Rams are mathematically alive which usually means you have no shot of making the playoffs

Bucs are losing big to the Saints and if the Vikings hold on and beat the Rams then the Bucs will be eliminated today.

Congrats to the Packers for winning the Division today.

The Bears are now in the wildcard hunt with the loss and the Bucs and Rams are close to being eliminated or may already be done

Bears could be in danger of missing the playoffs, the way the Packers played, they could lose in the playoffs easily.

Your are correct, the Bears are currently #8 in the NFC and now on the outside looking in. The Skins are now number 4 in the NFC since they lead the divison and the Giants have the last wildcard

They do have 2 easy games left against the Cardinals and Lions.

The two wildcard teams are

Bears-8-5
Seattle-8-5


These are the teams who still have a good shot in getting that last wildcard who only trail the seahawks by one game and can afford one more loss but probably no more than that

Skins-7-6
Cowboys-7-6
Vikings-7-6



These are the teams who cannot afford another loss or another seattle win

Rams-6-6-1
Bucs-6-7
Saints-5-7
Lions-4-8



These are the 3 teams who were eliminated today since they can no longer catch the seahawks

Panthers-4-9
Cardinals-4-9
Eagles-4-9



Lions will be eliminated with a loss tonight against the Packers
looks like you may have jumped the gun a little: look at what we have this week?
