With Kansas City and New Orleans playing this weekend, that could be one preview of the Super Bowl.

Up until last weekend, New Orleans was the number one seed in the NFC and KC is the number one seed in the AFC. Right now Green Bay is number one. If KC can win the game, and GB wins, The Packers will be in the driver's seat and it will be theirs to lose.

The Vikings MUST win and hope the Cardinals lose to get back into the playoffs. If Chicago wins and the Cards lose, that puts Chicago in the playoffs. If the Cards win, they are still the number 7 seed. If Tampa loses, that may set up something else.

Cleveland still is a team to be reckoned with and just because Baltimore beat them doesn't mean they aren't in the playoffs, it just means that Baltimore has a better chance to be in and it gets more interesting in the playoffs.
