The NFC playoff picture is taking shape. Chicago is the top seed. New Orleans is the second seed. Those teams get first-round byes. Seattle is the fourth seed. Those things are set. We also know that the NFC East runnerup (Dallas or Philadelphia) will visit Qwest Field as the fifth seed in a wild-card playoff game on Jan. 6 or 7. Here is what you need to know: If the Eagles win next week, they keep the third seed and the Cowboys visit Seattle. If the Cowboys lose next week, they visit Seattle. If the Eagles lose next week and the Cowboys win, the Eagles visit Seattle in the wild-card round. There you have it.
