Three divisions are in play this weekend: The AFC South, NFC West and a NFC Wild Card spot are open.
If the Indianapolis Colts win, they are in as the three or four seed. If they lose and the Jacksonville Jaguars win, then the Jags win the South as the four seed. The Colts can claim the No. 3 seed from Kansas City with a Chiefs loss and a Colts win, based on a head-to-head win earlier in the season.
The winner of the St. Louis Rams at Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night will be claim the NFC West division and the four seed, where they will most likely host the Super Bowl champion Saints in the first round.
The Seahawks would become the first team with a losing record to make the playoffs if they can beat the Rams. St. Louis would finish 8-8 with a win.
