We would probably still have to play the Rams at St Louis the first round so that would be the best scenario we could get unless the Falcons lose once more because we're going to kill them. Hartley should be shot because it should be us they're talking about again not the Falcons.

The NFC playoff race is like this. Right now ATL clearly has the edge for the #1 seed, and the Saints are firmly in the driver's seat for the top wild card spot (#5 seed). Somebody has to win the NFC west for the #4 seed. But #2, 3 and 6 are really up for grabs. It could come down to a lot of tie-breakers, and the Bucs are sitting pretty with home games against Detroit and Seattle coming up. There could easily be a 10-6 team that is left out.

Assuming the Saints get the wild-card (the most likely outcome unless Seattle can help us out next week by beating Atlanta), they will travel to the NFC west winner in the wild-card round. I'll assume they win. The next round would depend on who wins between the #3 seed (Philly, NYG, GB, or Chicago) and the #6 seed (any of those or TB). If the #3 seed wins, the Saints would then be the lowest remaining seed and would travel to Atlanta for the divisional round. If the #6 seed beats the #3 seed, then #6 would go to Atlanta and the Saints would visit #2. Should the #6 seed defeat Atlanta, the Saints could conceivably host the NFCCG again.

Really, anything could happen. But yes, it's nice to have a playoff spot pretty much in the books.

With that said Atlanta's run d was horrible today. We easily beat them again today with their lackluster performance against an inferior team.
Giants have a tough road ahead, but will be #6.
Bucs lose to us and they're done
Pack are two games back.

Put a bow on it

Packers are done. Rodgers concussion sealed that.
Our Wild Card is "fairly" wrapped up unless something crazy happens.. Which it could.

My prediction:
Week 17 We beat the Rams again
Week 18 We beat the Bears
Week 19 We beat the Falcons
Week 20 We beat the Patriots in Dallas.

Week 21 we Celebrate again in New Orleans with parades.

If Seattle doesn't beat ATL and the Saints do, it could very well result in the Saints having nothing to play for Week 17 (Except the very remote possibility of Carolina beating Atlanta in the Georgia Dome)

So, with the 5 seed wrapped up but a slim chance at the 1 seed what do you do?

And a side note, the Saints could also give Tampa a playoff spot by losing week 17 and letting them in as the 6 seed.

I'd prefer 3 NFC South playoff teams if the Saints have nothing to gain Week 17.
