The Seahawks certainly look like a contender right now, but I agree that they need to overcome some serious road woes against some really good teams if they are going to make a trip to the Super Bowl.
Yep.. that's my biggest concern.

Still.. I don't want to speak too soon... the miracle division win could also include the #2 seed behind the Falcons if SF and GB both lose.

Otherwise Seattle is on the road.

Anything is possible with the NFC this coming weekend, but don't count on GB losing to the Vikes. They will really be up for this game. They want that 2nd seed bad, team is still nursing a bunch of injuries (like many teams) and want the rest.

We all know that the Cowboys lose these type of games based on past history


2008 winner takes all game against the Eagles.........loss 44-6

2011 winner takes all game against the Giants..........loss 31-14


So is there any reason to think that the Cowboys win this game?

OK, before the last game of the season, this is how I think it is going to end up!

1. Falcons, 2. Packers. 3. Niners, 4. Redskins, 5. Seahawks, 6. Bears

Here is an unlikely scenario, but still within the realm of possibility: Seahawks beat the Rams (strong possibility.) Vikings beat the Packers (outside shot of happening, not likely but not impossible.) Cardinals beat 49ers (probably not happening.)

If these three scenarios combine, the Seattle Seahawks are the #2 seed in the NFC playoffs, even with the Packers at 11-5 and one half a game over the 49ers at 10-5-1. That botched call by the refs in week 3 may turn into something that greatly affects the shape of the playoff landscape in the NFC. Of course, this scenario playing out is a long shot. I think the long pole in the tent is going to be the 49ers game, as I expect them to hold serve against Arizona. I think the Seahawks will be able to handle the Rams, but I am not sure what to expect in the Packers-Vikings game (sorry Suzan). That one really can go either way.

I honestly think the vikings beat the Packers and will make the playoffs. Adrian Peterson has that look in his eyes.

Vikings HAVE to win this game. Packers don't. Bye would be nice; but, even more sweet would be to stick a fork in the Vikes. Go Pack!

And that's why I think the Vikings win, because of the fact the Packers are already in and the Vikes are not

It will be a tough game, yes, AP got over 200 yds on the Pack last time, Matthews was not playing, plus other injuries. Everybody talks about the stadium, the noise, could be an issue for some of the rookies (offsides penalties) but remember Rodgers loves domes and noise not that big of a deal. I'm hoping the Packers are really up for this game, very big, huge!!! Just read that CJ Wilson might be back for this game, too, woohoo!!!
