    NFC Division Championships Seem to be Shaping Up…

    … While the Race for the 2 Wild Card Spots Become a Muddled Mess

    by Bruce Smith

    As any one with a TV or radio knows, the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys will battle for the top seed from the NFC on Thursday night in Dallas.

    Given Green Bay’s relatively weak schedule down the stretch VS a pretty tough line-up that Dallas will face, the Packer probably do have an opportunity to wrap-up home field advantage throughout the playoffs with a win at Dallas – with the road to the Super Bowl coming through Green Bay. Regardless of the outcome on Thursday night Green Bay and Dallas are likely to both get week one byes.

    Seattle and Tampa Bay both seen to have healthy leads in locking up their divisions – with a big assist from the teams collapsing behind them.

    This week Seattle (3) is at Philadelphia (12) and Tampa Bay (4) is at New Orleans (7).

    NFC - 2007 Regular Season

    Rk Team - Division – W – L - Pct - PF - PA Net Div Conf

    1 Cowboys East, 10 – 1 .909, 358 - 221 (137) 4-0 ` 7-0
    2 Packers North, 10 – 1 .909, 296 - 185 (111) 3-1 ` 7-1
    3 Seahawks West 7 – 4 .636, 245 - 183 (`62) 4-1 ` 6-2
    4 T.B. Buc's South 7 – 4 .636, 214 - 164 (`50) 3-0 ` 6-2

    After the top 4 likely division champs, the wild card race for the remaining two NFC play-off spots is turning into a muddled mess..

    Rk Team -- Divsion – W – L - Pct - PF - PA Net Div Conf

    5 Giants ```East, 7 – 4 .636, 253 - 241 (12) 2-2 ` 5-4
    6 Lions ```North, 6 – 5 .545, 257 - 269 (-12) 3-1 ` 4-5
    7 Saints ``South 5 – 6 .455, 243 - 252 (-9) 2-2 ` 4-3
    8 Cardinals West 5 – 6. 455, 254 - 259 (-5) 2-2 ` 3-5
    9 Vikings ```North 5 - 6.455, 236 - 227 (+9) 1-3 ` 3-5
    10 Redskins `East 5 - 6 .455 213 - 240 (-27) 1-3 ` 3-5
    11 Bears ```North 5 – 6 .455, 221 - 251 (-30) 1-3 ` 2-5
    12 Eagles ```East 5 – 6 .455, 234 - 218 (+16) 1-3 ` 3-5

    The Lions and Giants seem to be on downward spirals.

    This week the Giants (5) travel to Chicago to face the Bears (11) and the (6) Lions are at MN to play the Vikings (9) – two teams chasing them for wild card spots. While the Cardinals (8) face Cleveland and the Redskins (10) plays Buffalo

    Stay tuned – things may get clearer after this weekend… or they may become even more of a muddled mess.
