Seahawks can wrap up #5 seed with win Sunday

The Seahawks wrap up the regular season Sunday at home against the Arizona Cardinals…
A win means the #5 seed heading into the NFC playoffs. A loss means a #6 seed. That would mean a first-round matchup with either the Cowboys, Bears or Rams.

Other teams battling for a final playoff spot are Minnesota and Philadelphia. The only way the Eagles get in is if they beat Washington and Chicago beats Minnesota. The Vikings would earn the #6 seed if Seattle wins or ties, Minnesota loses and the Redskins beat the Eagles.

The AFC is much more interesting with Kansas City, New England, Houston and San Diego clinched so far. Still alive are Baltimore, Indianapolis, Tennessee, and Pittsburgh. The Ravens, Colts and Titans are all 9-and-7 while the Steelers are 8-6-and-1. It all comes down to Sunday.

The Seahawks and Cardinals kickoff Sunday at 1:25 on FOX.
