There stands to be a good chance of a repeat of the final weekend in the 1st round of the playoffs for Pack v. Cards & Eagles v. Cowboys if...

1. Vikings beat Chicago tonight.
2. Cowboys beat Philly next week.
The Wild Card games will be back at the same stadiums between the same teams in the 1st round.

If Philly wins in Dallas in Week 17, their game in the 1st round will be at Philly (if Vikes beat the Giants next week as well as Chicago tonight).

Would guess this scenario has never come up in the past and would expect a little gamesmanship and sandbagging by all teams involved for those "prelim" games in week 17. Vikes play NYG first before Pack v. Cards & Eagles v. Cowboys in week 17.

Without looking it up, I'm almost certain it's happened before since the current playoff format went in in '90.
