In the NFC, The Seattle Seahawks made history on Sunday by becoming the first 7 - 9 to win the division and host a playoff game as the 4th seed. The Atlanta Falcons proved their dominance over an abysmal Carolina Panthers team to secure the 1st seed. Albeit they played their starters, The Chicago Bears actually lost (which is a blessing in disguise) to the Green Bay Packers. Green Bay secured the 6th seed. Conversely, the Philadelphia Eagles have the 3rd seed by choking against Minnesota in week 16 at home.
Some teams already knew their fate beforehand, but some teams were playing to win. Here is the entire playoff picture.
