The NFC's wild finish
Heading into the final week of the season, none of the NFC's division winners have been determined, which makes for compelling Week 17 theater.
The Seahawks still figure to win the NFC West, but they'll have to beat St. Louis or see the 49ers lose to Arizona to clinch. The Cardinals are still alive for a wild-card berth. The 49ers can actually win the division AND get the No. 1 seed in the conference if they beat Arizona, Seattle loses to St. Louis and Carolina loses to Atlanta.
The Panthers can win the NFC South with a win or a Saints loss to Tampa.
The winner of Sunday's Packers-Bears games takes the NFC North. And it's a winner-take-all in the Philly-Dallas game for the NFC East.
