Eagles likely round out NFC playoff picture

The final look of the NFC playoff picture rests on the results from Lincoln Financial Field, where the Cowboys have unraveled and trail the Eagles 44-3. The winner of the contest becomes the No. 6 seed in the NFC. What it means is that the NFC playoff bracket is nearly set.

The Panthers defeated the Saints, 33-31, clinching the NFC South title and the No. 2 seed in the NFC with a first-round bye. The Panthers join the Giants, the NFC’s top seed, with a bye in the first round.

The Vikings clinched the NFC North title Sunday by virtue of a Ryan Longwell 50-yard field goal (video) to beat the Giants, 20-19, as time expired. The Vikings are locked in as the No. 3 seed, and would host the sixth-seeded Eagles in the wild-card round.

By virtue of Carolina’s win, the Falcons are the No. 5 seed and will face the fourth-seeded Cardinals on the road.
