The Crystal Ball: NFC Playoff seeding & WC weekend results

NOTE: This was written before Zona lost to 49ers Monday night.  Now there is a good chance #3 and #4 will flip.  This means, for most part, possibly swap "Eagles" for "Cardinals" in the following post.

Although there are still three weeks to go, now that we got past Bengals I feel fairly confident to predict the following NFC seeding:

  1. Saints
  2. Vikings
  3. Cards
  4. Eagles
  5. Packers (WC top seed)
  6. Giants (WC 2nd seed; though they are trailing 'Boys right now, I'm predicting Romo & Co lose to both Saints and Philly, and Giants already have tiebreaker)

I don't want to jinx Vikings, so I won't predict past divisional round (for now).  But here's what I can come up with for results of WC weekend:

  1. Giants at Cards (or Cowboys, if it does turn out to be them): Cards win
  2. Packers at Eagles: Toss up, since each team has proven themselves capable of winning -- or losing -- any game. 

This means the divisional round will be:

  1. Cards at Vikings
  2. Packers or Eagles at Saints

Note if Cards are #3 and win, and we are #2, it does not matter what happens in other WC game, we play Cards at home.  If Cards lose, we play Eagles if they win, and if they lose along with Cards (both home teams lose), we play Packers.
